finally fall.

Well, it officially feels like fall.  I walked the five year old to school today in a pretty heavy drizzle.  She wore thick polka dot tights and was stoked to do it. (It's clear I'm a child of the 80s after using the word "stoked," isn't it?) The weather is quite a change from last Monday, when it was, no joke, a smokin' sweaty hot 102 degrees!  So hurray fall!  Hurray boots!  Hurray jeans!  Hurray sweaters!  And hurray to cool(er) weather cooking, baking, and most importantly eating!

That said, I'm very excited to be part of a blogger fall recipe exchange that was the brain child of Michelle at Pretty Mommy.  She's kicking the exchange off today with a Taco Soup recipe that looks delicious.  I'll be sharing my recipe(s) on October 20, but check out Michelle's site for the full list of amazing bloggers that are participating.  I'll also be linking to the recipes each day so that you, my loyal 13 readers, can share in the wealth of some yummy recipes.
