I'm not sure what your traditions are for celebrating the arrival of Fall... (Oh, yesterday was the FIRST Day of Fall just in case you were wondering. If you didn't know- Shame on you, Ha!)
...Back to my thought on Fall traditions. I have a couple. First, I get so excited I drive my adorable husband crazy. Then, I start the fall baking. YES, right away! I have to have a pumpkin treat for the First Day of Fall (Doesn't everyone?) This year my dear personal friend Paula Deen shared her secret family recipe for her Creamy Pumpkin and Pecan Squares in the Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine. Did I say secret? I meant to say semi-secret!
Yummy, Yummy! Let the baking begin!
Next, we MUST have the traditional Fall Mix. I am not sure how long this mix has been in our family. I just remember eating it! To my friends in H-Town it is called Lacie's Fall Mix. Kind of catchy, don't you think?
If you don't have a fall tradition, let me help you start one...Here is the Almost Famous Lacie's Fall Mix! Go Make Some!!!
1 big container of raisins
1 Large bag of M&Ms
1/2 a bag of pretzels (any shape will do)
1 big bag of candy corn
1 big container of salted roasted peanuts
Yummy, Yummy! Oh- the BEST way to eat it is to take one of each of the items and place gently in your hand. Then pop it in your wide open mouth and savor the flavor!
Happy Fall Ya'll!
