I'm lovin' my Amy Butler sewing books. There are so many cool projects and they are pretty simply. Here are some fun decorative kitchen towels I just made for my sister as a house warming gift. (Surprise Candice, I hope they match your new kitchen.)

Don't you just love the smell of ginger and cloves? It just smells like fall to me.

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Mix shortening, brown sugar, egg and molasses. Blend in remaining ingredients except the granulated sugar. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
Heat oven to 375. Shape dough into round balls. Dip tops in granulated sugar. Place balls, sugared side up, on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.

We woke up to a layer of snow on our neighborhood. To warm our insides we each had a bowl of oatmeal topped with our favorite toppings. Enjoy!
Boil water and salt. Stir in oats. Cook about 5 minutes over medium heat. Just follow the instructions on the back of the Quaker Oats box.
Dan's favorite - ice cream and maple syrup
Michelle's favorite - brown sugar
Jake's favorite - peaches and cinnamon

We decided to bottle fresh salsa Saturday morning as we listened to General Conference. Dan has a greater appreciation for my salsa now after working along side me for 3 hours to make it. We enjoyed several plates of nachos with our delicious salsa piled on top.
Doesn't it just feel like fall, I love this time of year.
