All About Autumn – Kath Eats Real Food

Here’s a post all about autumn and our current seasonal pursuits!

All About Autumn

The boys and I went to Complete Foodstuff to inventory up on pumpkins. We are hoping to go to a pumpkin patch this weekend to get far more! But this was a good commence. I also was thrilled to locate burnt orange mums. I am not crazy about yellow mums. Yellow will make me nervous. It’s alarming! 

We all love the swan gourd! 

Puking Pumpkins!

We also bought two carving pumpkins and I acquired some great follow for Halloween mainly because we needed a carved pumpkin for our KiwiCo craft! Let me tell you just after 39 a long time of using the incorrect instruments for pumpkin carving, we eventually have every little thing we will need to make it effortless! This man took me no time to carve. Get a punch-out kit like this

As I stated in a earlier article, KiwiCo sent us their Puking Pumpkin Kit. Useless to say, it was a Substantial hit!! (And it is only $12.95 to buy.) 

We did at the very least 5 rounds of shades / puking episodes

And it was straightforward sufficient for equally of them to participate in the mixing and pouring. 

So awesome! 

Eggcelent Breakfasts

Had to share this croque madame we got as just take-out from MarieBette for weekend brunch. On dwelling-produced sourdough with ham and gruyere and a couple of pastries on the facet. Perfect fuel prior to a soccer activity afterwards in the working day. 

And on the lighter aspect, a juuuuuust performed tough-boiled egg (my trick is a fast boil for 8 minutes sharp) with grapes and 50 percent a cinnamon raisin bagel. 

And also I shared this LOL instant on Instagram when I completed Birch’s half-eaten plum as part of my breakfast. Oh how situations have altered. 

Fall Solstice with Ferns

Yet another tumble-enjoyment action was a fall solstice party at our friends’ dwelling. They stay on prime of Wintergreen mountain so it was a hike to get there with beautiful views! 


And Ferns!

If you remember, Birch and Fern had the very same thanks date! We pass up viewing Fern day to day at college considering the fact that she moved to one more university final yr. Thankfully these two are nevertheless excellent pals each time they reunite. 

4 many years of mother buddies <3

That view! Right in our friends’ backyard. 

Erica used my Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board as a template for this beautiful arrangement.

Trying Green Chef

I saw Brittany of Eating Bird Food was using Green Chef and asked her how she liked it. She sent me a promo code and I promptly ordered a box to try.

Pluses: I like that they are a bit more health focused and are a USDA-certified organic company. I also really liked that a lot of the ingredients were one-step ahead of prep (the cabbage was already shopped the sauce was already prepared) so the cooking time was super fast! 

Downsides: the 4-person plan came in two separate boxes which was simply more to unpack. And it is a bit more expensive. 

We loved the recipes!! 

Chicken and Potato Soup

Sesame Shrimp Stir-Fry

And a really amazing pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes and a sun-dried tomato kale salad. Mazen actually said at the dinner table “This is really good pork.” (And he rarely compliments the chef.)

If you’d like to give it a try, my affiliate link should get you 50% off your first box and 22% off a few after that for a total of $135 off. 

Date Night with Gary Clark Jr. 

Thomas and I went to see Gary Clark Jr. at the Ting Pavilion. He was incredible! 

Beforehand we had dinner at Petit Pois and enjoyed lobster and shrimp bisque, kale salad, mussels, and smoked salmon small plates.
