Date Night Dishes...Pumpkin Decorating
A warm and hearty meal doesn't have to mean a day spent in the kitchen thanks to the crock pot. Let it do the cooking while you spend some time getting your house looking festive for fall.
There is a new addition in the produce section these days, and even though we are not quite near Halloween, it doesn't mean I don't get the urge to carve pumpkins every time I go to the grocery store. Bags of gourds and pumpkins now greet you upon arrival at just about any store, so it seems appropriate to take advantage of it. It is too early to carve pumpkins if you want them to last, so get creative and find other ways to decorate them to get your house in the fall mood. You could spray paint them a fun color, use stencils to paint your street number, initials or bedazzle them with glitter and jewels. To make this fall craft man-friendly, find items he might appreciate like stencils of his favorite sports team.
While you are decorating your pumpkins, your dinner will be bubbling away in the kitchen filling your house with an amazing aroma. There is no greater kitchen gadget this time of year than the crock pot, and I long for it all summer long. Throw your food in it in the morning, and when you return home after a long day of work or a full day of raking leaves, a warm meal awaits. This fall turkey loin recipe is a fall favorite around our house and I am sure it will become a favorite for you too.
