Seasonal Delights

For most California girls, Summer wins best season, hands down. But for the introverted homebody babes in my house, we wait all Summer for the real fun to begin in the Fall! Every year, we wait for those Santa Ana winds to blow into town and bring in the goblins and ghouls. ABC Family is on repeat all day and night, pumping classics like Hocus Pocus, The Craft, and anything Tim Burton. We play tricks and bake treats and sport sweaters and scarves like they’re already out of style. And right around Halloween time, we throw a little Fall Festivus to carve pumpkins and cozy up on the couch with warm & fuzzy libations.

This year, I had a bit of a field day at the Target Dollar Store. There are usually great finds there, but this years loot was full of creepy shot glasses and cute coozies for our drinks. So last Thursday, we displayed our fab finds, hit up the pumpkin patch, and turned on Beetlejuice to set the tone. Since we had just celebrated a multitude of birthdays, we combined all of our kitchen ingredients for a Cali-style Fall Feast. Here is what we had on our entirely Gluten Free menu:

  • Apple Cinnamon goat cheese + rice crackers
  • Sliced Apples w/ Salted Caramel Sauce, Pumpkin Pie Spice + Sea Salt
  • Fish tacos on corn tortillas + Bitchin Sauce
  • Grilled peppers + sweet potatoes
  • Black beans + rice
  • Grilled peppercorn pork tenderloin
  • Southwestern Salad w/ feta cheese + homemade chili lime dressing
Spooky test tube shot glasses + batty drink stirrers
