On Monday I drove a slightly different route to work, and passed a nursery with a pumpkin patch. Well, with pumpkins available for purchase anyway. That glimpse of fun helped me feel creative all day and gave me something to look forward to after work when I stopped to take some photographs.
And now for lame self-promotion:
Here’s a link to the devotional I wrote for our fall prayer emphasis.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures this time, so I’ll briefly describe.
I decided to try a cheese fondue with apples, bread, & grapes to dip, and I also experimented and made some apple cupcakes to go with a Maple-flavored whipped cream. Mmmmm.
What Actually Happened
I made the fondue (which turned out yummy!) with brie, a shredded Italian cheese bag, heavy cream & apple cider. Which was amazing. I nixed the grapes, got apple slices, and used homemade bread given to me by a friend. (Laura B has an electric knife that I used to cut the bread. SO MUCH FUN! We had two large bowls of bread.)
I LEFT THE CUPCAKES AT MICHELE’S HOUSE! Which is 45 minutes away. So no cupcakes. But I had the topping. So Laura & I made Maple Shortbread Cookies. Which were soft & fabulous. And I’m making them again soon.
So that was Dinner Club. Hopefully I can steal some of Jess’ pics when she posts on her blog. ;-)
