How was your weekend?
Mine was great! Fall temperatures, football, and pumpkin spice lattes were the big contributors to a great weekend. I certainly enjoy spring and summer but I think when you’re a football fan and fall starts, there isn’t much else that tops the feeling of starting a new season.
So I enjoyed my first pumpkin spice latte of fall and I know it won’t be the last! Mike and I went to a park in the downtown Greendale area and had some fun in the playground. We felt like little kids again! But then we realized we weren’t because the chipmunk and turtle was a little too small for us. :)
I decided to toss my dying flowers on the patio- I did a really poor job of taking care of them this year- and buy a pot of mums. I normally don’t like the fall flowers but I like having flowers on our patio despite how terrible I am at remembering to water them. When I placed them on the patio I realized what an abundance of yellow we have but that’s ok! It’s a very Pittsburgh themed patio, haha.
Now that football season has officially started with the regular season games I decided it was time to enjoy one of our favorite breads which is perfect for game days- Honey Buttered Beer Bread. I found this recipe on Brown Eyed Baker’s blog and tried it with one of my favorite beers- Yuengling. Like I mentioned last week, we brought a case home since we can’t buy it in Wisconsin and we miss it dearly. Using a lager like Yuengling in the beer bread makes for really tasty bread and I can’t imagine using a different beer although I know others would work.
How did you football team fair this weekend? What is your favorite fall treat?
