This week has been about Fall, Football and Food! The colors of the changing leaves are truly beautiful, and the kids and I collected a bunch of colorful leaves on a walk this week, to work on identifying together. I remember having to do a leaf and bug collection when I was in school, and I want my kids to at least have the leaf part...maybe not the bug collection. 😛
Although my waistline could probably use a few more salads, around here, fall means lots more soups, stews and warm comfort foods, so I've included a few in this week's list of dinner ideas. 🙂 If your family has a favorite soup or stew that your enjoy this time of year, I'd love to hear about it in the comments! If you'd like some ideas of our favorites, check out the following delicious recipes.
