What I Like About Fall and “Soy Sauce” Pork Chops (GF, DF, Paleo, W30)- Blog Post #13

writer's workshop

I didn’t feel good on Wednesday night so I did not get this post up for the week.  Headache and tiredness.  Yuck!  It was an early night for me.

This week’s prompt is what do I like about fall.

  1.  The flavors of fall – cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves

  2. Pumpkin Spice Latte, Maple Pecan Lattes, and Blackberry Pie Lattes.
    I get the Blackberry Pie Lattes from a local coffee shop called Winans.

  4. My Autumn Glory Maple Tree
  5. Halloween – My town is known for decorating for Halloween.  They usually have a parade celebrating Halloween.  We’ve never done it though.

    The boys are getting too old for trick or treating.  Insert sad face.

  6. The decorations

  7. Bonfires

Fall Trail Mix (DF, GF) – Blog Post #12

We went to Meijers the other day.  As I walking back to the front of the store, I noticed the pumpkin spiced Cheerios so I decided to get me a box.

Once I got home, I decided to use the Cheerios to make a trail mix.

Now there is some debate whether Cheerios are truly gluten free.  Some people have reactions when they eat them.  If you are one of those people, please don’t use them.

I had some pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds waiting for me to do something with so I used them in this trail mix.

You can use any kind of nut.  I had pecans available so I used them.  I think walnuts would be delicious in this trail mix.

I also used some freeze dried apples that I got at Trader Joes.  However, I think dried cranberries would be delicious also.

Store your trail mix in an airtight container.
