Since its Saturday, I figured a survey would be a survey would be appropriate! I’ve seen these popping up all over a few blogs and decided to join in myself. I still can’t believe October is almost over, and soon it will be Halloween!
Apple picking or pumpkin picking?
Pumpkin! I love pumpkin picking this time of year, since its basically the only time you can actually get your hands on a pumpkin. Plus they usually have other fun activities happening at a pumpkin patch!
And let’s be honest, I love pumpkins.
We used to have apple trees in our neighbours yard that we used to pick every year, so maybe I just got sick of all that apple picking;)
However, honeycrisp apple picking is definitely awesome too!
Favorite apple recipe?
Tough one for me, since I really dislike the taste of cooked apples.
I still want to try my hand at baking with them though and see if I can actually get myself to enjoy cooked or baked apples.
I’ll leave you with a few links I’ve seen around that look pretty good!
Favorite pumpkin recipe
* pumpkin protein pudding is one of my favorite snacks to enjoy *
This shouldn’t be a real question. That’s like asking which of my kids I prefer…well, I don’t have kids, but if I did I’m sure this would close compare.
Favorite soup recipe
* okay, so not a soup but you NEED to try pumpkin seed butter! I could drown in this stuff *
Another tough one to choose.
I love all different kinds of soup, tomato, pumpkin, parsnip, broccoli, basically any soup recipe is a win for me. Unless it contains mushrooms, onions, or garlic. I hate those veggies. Not a fan at all.
Also I love chili. Does chili count as a soup? I’m going to go with yes. Just because I love it.
Football: on tv or in the stadium?
If the weather permits – outside for sure. I’m not a huge football fan, but I’ll watch it. As long as drinks as involved…agreed?
Favorite football team to cheer for?
Seattle Seahawks. Just because that’s my Dad’s favorite team, so I’ll have to agree with him on that one!
Daylight savings time. love it or hate it?
I don’t really mind the time changes at all, actually. Yeah, it gets dark earlier, but I’m not going to hate on it.
How do your workouts change during the fall months?
They don’t usually change at all.
I’m such a creature of habit that I typicall stick to the same routines throughout the months. I still go to spin classes, work out at home, go for walks, I’m just more bundled up.
The only time it will change is if it snows. If you’ve been to Victoria, you know the whole city basically shuts down when even an inch of snow hits the ground. People literally go insane in the snow. We are definitely not equipped for it.
In the end, I don’t let the change in weather effect the way I work out. I mean if it’s cold out the best way to warm up is to get moving!
Favorite halloween candy?
I highly dislike all candies, like candy corn and gummy candies. Never have liked them.
I was much more of a chocolate girl and the Reese cups were always my favorite! They were actually about the only chocolate I really liked.
So, any kind of peanut butter and chocolate combo will be a winner for me.
Any essentials for fall weather?
Boots! Layers! Tights! Cardigans! Wedges! Sweater Dresses! I just love Fall fashion.
Another fall essential, is a hot cup of coffee!
Do your meals change when the weather changes?
Definitely! I much prefer whipping up warm soups, chilis, breads, muffins, and all things that warm the soul on chilly days and nights. Also my list for fall produce goes up a ton!
Goodbye smoothies, hello soup.
Favorite fall dessert?
* This pumpkin pie frosty could fall under dessert categories though *
Honestly, I’ve never really made or had any amazing Fall desserts. I don’t like pie or any of the typical Fall desserts like that.
I used to just beg my Mom to make cheesecake during the Fall holidays.
I’d have to say any sort of muffin or bread would probably be on my favorite list! I should probably branch out and try some more desserts though…
Best thing about fall?
The leaves, weather, atmosphere. It’s so pretty during this season!
Worst thing about fall?
Don’t want to dwell on the negative of the season, since there are too many good things to overlook the bad!
Best thing that will happen this fall?
Well, since my birthday and Thanksgiving has past. I guess Halloween would be the most exciting thing. Although, that doesn’t sound too exciting.
I’m sure something fun will come up
What’s the best thing that will happen for you this fall?
Favorite Fall soup?
Happy Saturday to you all!
