Get Inpsired and Decorate...




Decorating for Fall  is a great way to get your family to feel inspired.  There are many ways you can decorate.  You don' t need to spend lots of money or go to a special store to find in season items.  Your house will be warm and inviting just by adding a few touches. 




Because in California we don't have much of a weather change, decorating for the fall is a great way to make your family feel inspired.  Visiting the pumpkin patches, fall festivals and other fun fall events add to getting inspired.



A few of the ways you can decorate is with food and plants. The grocery stores carry a variety of pumpkins, gourds, squash and flowers that are in the season's colors. Home Depot is another place you can find plants that are in season. Just by placing them in the kitchen or living room as decoration will help bring the feeling of Fall. You can place them outside your door as well to give your house a fun look.





Hot apple cider, soups and homemade breads are great ways to remind the sense of smell, why Fall is a great season to celebrate. Baking and cooking away will help make your house cozy and warm. Fall is a great season to celebrate and enjoy. Here is my favorite bread receipe to help you get started:



1 1/3
cups mashed very ripe bananas (2 large)
2/3
cup sugar
1/4
cup milk
3
tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
3
eggs
2 2/3
cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/2
cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease bottom of 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.

Stir bananas, sugar, milk, oil, vanilla and eggs in large bowl. Stir in Bisquick mix and nuts. Pour into pan.

Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove from pan and place top side up on wire rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 day.

I Love Fall......
It gives you so many more chances to turn over a new leaf.
