Falling Into Fall

First of all, thank you for all the awesome questions on yesterday's post. I am too sleepy to sort through them today but I'll start answering them first thing next week!

The leaves have been falling here for weeks and I've got the Halloween decorations up, but for some reason I haven't been feeling all that "fall-ish."

Last night, I finally got into the fall spirit. Thanks, in large part, to this large bowl of Apple Betty.

(Side Note: every time I say Apple Betty people give me this crazy eyed look and ask what the hell a Betty is. So I googled it for you. Apple Betty is crustless apple pie. So there. )

So I'll admit it - my favorite thing about fall is the food. And the scents (ie vanilla, pumpkin - homey scents).

What's your favorite thing about fall??

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Ooo, girl! I'm right there with you! I haven't really been feeling the whole "fall" thing either. Even though I put out my pumpkins and my mums, I just can't get into the fall mindset! But I think you've got the right idea -- Maybe I need to start baking some fall goodies! :)

I've been getting into the fall spirit slowly but surely. Fall is my favorite season, but work has just been so busy. I fully intend to stop by the Produce Junction this weekend and gets mums and pumpkins!

I love Apple Betty! My grandmother used to make that.

The thing that gets me into the fall spirit the most is when we visit the local orchard and go fruit picking and visit the farmer's market.

It didn't feel like fall for me until I went apple picking last Monday.

Of course it SNOWED this morning, so I think fall may be leaving us pretty quickly.

My Uncle Roy was a master of the apple betty. He made it every holiday for us! He passed away within minutes of my little dude being born last year. I like to think there's a little Uncle Roy in son. So this year I will be attempting his delicious apple confection in honor of him!
