We wanted to start a new tradition in our little family and that is an annual Fall-ebration. We wanted to do it when it officially became Fall, but we have been so busy these past couple weeks that we were just able to do it now. Our tardiness in celebrating the change of season works out as this is the first week that southern California has had Fall-like temperatures.
We hung a special homemade garland and I am really liking the color combo of teal and brown for our Fall decorations.
Ben and I worked harmoniously in the kitchen for a few hours slaving away at our Fall-ebration dinner, which was devoured in about 10 minutes.
My little girls had a Fall-ebration present awaiting them at the table, which were some shoes for the new season. Away with the sandals and time to bring out some boots. They were mighty excited about their little treats.
The meal consisted of the perfect Fall-ebration food of cod agrodolce with spaghetti squash and mushrooms, curry roasted butternut squash and chickpeas as a side, some water for the girls, a glass of wine for Ben, and some apple cider for me. We loved using the Fall vegetables in our meals. All was super yum.
This is a new tradition we look forward to continuing each year. It is our way of celebrating the new season God has given us. Ben and I already have some thoughts on what else to do for next year. Nevertheless, the rest of the week we will be doing some special things to ring in the wonderful new season!
Next up apple cider baked doughnuts! I can't wait to see how those turn out...
