Thursday Things

We're officially leaving for Denver on October 3rd. Eeek. I've already been Googling Top Fall Festivals and 50 Free Fall Activities. I love this season, there's so much to do in Denver now through Christmas, and I can't wait to explore our new home :)

I'm not sure who conducted this study, but I have to agree.

Awesome DIY - turn an old coffee table into an ottoman.

I spent the day with my Grandmother yesterday and we stopped at Panera for lunch. I had the most delicious Autumn Squash Soup. Panera's website says that the soup is a blend of squash and pumpkin, simmered in vegetable broth with honey, apple juice, cinnamon and a hint of curry, finished with sweet cream and topped with roasted and salted pumpkin seeds. I am on a mission to recreate this recipe at home. I definitely tasted the pumpkin and cinnamon, and all of the flavors blended together but each had their own distinct taste in the soup. Does that even make sense? I'm not going to pretend to be a food blogger lol ... but I will definitely be attempting to make this soup at home and hopefully I can perfect the recipe and share it soon.

Do you have a favorite Fall recipe to share?
What's your favorite Fall activity?

  1. Love the first quote. It's so true. In Alaska, fall came at the end of August and if you blinked you'd miss it. Pumpkins also cost and arm and a leg. I'm super pumped to be able to see the changing colors and buy inexpensive pumpkins, and other produce.

    Safe a fun and safe road trip to Denver. Can't wait to creep on your hubby when they come to Brampton! (wow, that was a super creepy comment) :)

  2. Well poopy. I rarely cuss. Guess I should start?

    And yay for Denver! So stinkin excited for you, teej & brutty. I'm also slightly jealous. I've heard Colorado is awesome!

    I love the quote about waiting until we are ready! What a great reminder to seize the moment!

  5. You're the sweetest, thank you!! Don't you worry, I'm going to be tweaking and testing until I get it right. YUM!!

  6. Seizing the moment is definitely something that I need to slow down and do!

  7. I've been wondering about that soup. I'm not especially adventurous with food but I think I might try it.


  8. DEFINITELY do!!! It was so yummy .. a little heavy on the calories compared to others, but definitely worth it ;)

  9. Hey Kym! I also love fall and can't wait to make some soup and get wear cozy sweaters! haha I bought a kabocha squash at the farmers market and will be making a soup with it soon. I also bought a sugar pie pumpkin.. Still trying to figure out what to make besides a pie. ;)

    I love the quote about people who swear- let's just say that I am definitely an honest type.. ;) haha
