It's almost time to pull on a sweater and head outdoors on a leaf-collecting expedition. Press the most beautiful leaves between the pages of a book and in a few days, when they have flattened and dried just a bit, slip them between the panes of glass-backed frames. Sheets of paper, carefully torn on the edges can make a simple mat!
Plan a trip to the apple orchard for a Fall outing....swirling leaves and the sweet smell of apples make it the ideal picnic spot. How about making a Baked Apple and Carrot Casserole for a family dinner?
An Autumn picnic means the tablecloth may flutter in the breeze. Keep it in place by tying jute around an apple stem, then lay it across the table, so that the tied apple dangles off the table a bit. Secure a second apple at the other end.....easy peasy!
Combine the broccoli slaw, grapes and apples in a serving bowl. Pour dressing on top and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with the pecans!
