Weekend Bites + Menu Plan Monday 9/19

Wohooooo, I ended up feeling much better than I thought I would this weekend! Saturday morning I woke up feeling a little sickly, but as the day moved on I gradually improved. So weird. I don't get sick very often and when I do, I'm not sick for very long. Go me!

I laid around on the couch for most of the morning until I had the sudden urge for a pumpkin latte. I headed out to Target and ordered my first pumpkin latte of the season. It's the only form of coffee I'll drink. I hate coffee! With latte in hand I perused the Halloween section. Hubby, you should be very proud. I didn't buy anything. :)

Inspired, I went home and opened up my fall box.

I spent an hour decorating and re-introducing our home to fall scents.

Afterwards, high on my fall kick, I proceeded to the kitchen to make a pumpkin cream cheese loaf. Have you bought any pumpkin yet? I still have three cans from last season.

On Sunday I was feeling even better! Hubby was given the day off (yay!) so we went apple picking!

First we had to get some donuts. You can smell those babies from the parking lot.

Then we headed out to the orchards.

Empire, McIntosh, Jonathan, and Cortland were all available for picking. I whipped out my real camera for you.

Such a pretty day.

So ready for fall!

Afterwards hubby and I made a mad dash to the store to pick up what we need for dinner this week. It's going to be a busy week for me, so this is a tentative menu. Even still, I can't start the week off without some sort of plan. Here goes:

    I had such a great weekend I don't want it to end! What did you do this weekend? Or, what's on your menu plan? 


      1. Ok apples are the cakes;))

      2. Sounds like your weekend was lovely. :) I love those beautiful photos of the orchards… it's like another world. I can't imagine how incredible it must be to see in person.

      3. Sounds like a fun day picking apples!! We are finishing off our weekend with the Emmys and pumpkin chili! :)

      4. Sounds like a perfect fall weekend, and might I just say, you two are too cute! (Also, where is this recipe for pumpkin cream cheese loaf? Must. Have.) ;-)

      5. yum! im so glad its apple season!!


      Thanks for stopping by!
