Ooops! I forgot to post a Feature Friday last week!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful first day of Autumn!
I can still enjoy nature excursions and drives to see the beautiful change in leaves. My favorite leaf color is bright red,
or maybe orange….it’s a toss up!
This week’s features are all about fall!
**Check out Listen to my words with your Heart for today’s Featured Blog! She’s posted a fun craft, which the kids will present later in this post.
To me, one of the greatest things about autumn is the warm comfort food that accompanies colder weather.
It is raining and chilly in the Bluegrass today, the perfect beginning to such a fabulous season if you ask me, so I pulled out the ol’ roasting pan for some stick-to-your-ribs yumminess.
Pork Roast with veggies:
1lb of pork roast: place in roasting or deep baking pan with 1/2 C water.
Arrange potatoes (I used red), baby carrots, celery and onions around pork in pan.
Mix 2 cups beef broth with 1 C of flour and stir. Add salt/pepper to taste.
Pour broth over pork and veggies.
Bake at 350 for 3-4 hours (I baked for 3 hours). I checked it at 2 hours to see if I wanted to add any more broth.
Very easy and very tasty!
Autumn also means harvest time! Kimmy from Living for Today has a wonderful recipe for canning your own grape juice. I’d never heard of anyone CANNING their own grape juice before, but it makes perfect sense. Check out this week’s FEATURED POST to learn how!
Now for the fun stuff that only a grandma (or Mama Jean) could appreciate-pics of the kids’ fall craft!
What are some things you are doing to celebrate this time of year?
