Indian Summer and Superfoods from Snyders
I don’t know about you, but I am truly enjoying this time of the year, what is normally called Indian Summer. Friday was an absolutely gorgeous day once the fog lifted so short sleeves were definitely the call for the day.
Autumn attire with it’s vibrant colors, patterns and prints should always include a little Animal Print which is why I love these Jessica Simpson Peep Toe pumps. They are by far one of the best Consignment Shop finds that I have ever purchased.
Would you believe that the rest of the outfit, excluding the earrings and bracelets was also thrifted from Goodwill…yes, the purse…the skirt…and the top #totallythrifted – gotta love it!
Saturday it rained, so I took a few bags and boxes of clothing and household items to be donated to Goodwill then picked up a few sweaters. Stay tuned for a mini-haul vlog, #DonateStuffCreateJobs
Oh and speaking of Indian Summer, have you started preparing your harvest menu for the holidays? Early Friday morning, hubby and I stopped in at Dutch Country Farmer’s Market in Middletown. I saw some of the freshest and most colorful fruits and veggies of the season on display at Snyder’s Produce, my mouth was watering!
I cannot wait to make a few batches of “good ole homemade” soup with some of these beauties and as soon as the oxtails arrive, there will be a big ole pot of Slow Cooked Oxtail Stew for a weekend meal.
What do you like most about this time of the year?
Leave a comment below then get outside and enjoy more of this beautiful Indian Summer weather!
today is the first official day of Autumn but by now you’ve noticed that the blogs are filled with great recipes and awesome looking foods for Fall. Autumn is the season for hibernating indoors and cooking meals in anticipation of the cold winter winds and upcoming holidays. I am always looking for quick and easy family meals and now with Malik in college those with smaller portions.
