Autumn has arrived!


 

I have so much to post, and so much to share and update. Maybe, it’ll all get done this weekend, and maybe, it won’t. I’m not sure. haha. Hang in there everyone!

We have welcomed Fall/Autumn with a warm hug, delicious spiced cider and a lot of other goodies. The first thing I did? Started the, not so long path of going back to my natural hair color! Yay me!

EverSoLightly and I went geocaching on the first day of fall, I was very proud of myself, because I found this one right as EverSoLightly was ready to give up! šŸ˜€

Today, err rather Yesterday, we had a baking day! It was delicious! So, I’m going to share one of our recipes with you! Then, I’ll try and post one recipe a day for the next week, including the AMAZING mexican feast we had on Thursday and another meal plus a few others that I’ve made.

I’m going to start off simple since it’s almost 2am.

Spiced Cider! Delicious! We made this tonight, and are going to make more tomorrow! It’s the PERFECT Fall/Winter drink, and though theĀ ingredientsĀ sound a bit…sketch…it’s not. It is AMAZING. Trust me!

Total Time: 15 minutes.
Serves, 4, or 2 if you have big mugs and go back for seconds hahaha! I do not have a photo of this, sorry!

What you’ll need:

6 cups apple cider, any brand, or home-made but not the packet stuff. REAL cider.

1/4th a cup REAL maple syrup, not that fake crap most people use, the REAL stuff, it’s a bit pricy but SO WORTH it, buy it, use it in this and on everything breakfast, it’s usually 5.99 per container, sometimes more. Any brand just make sure it says REAL maple syrup and read theĀ ingredientsĀ to check.

2 tablespoons (TBS) of Mulling Spice mixture. I bought mine for $5 at Target, but even that one that I linked to is cheaper than buying all theĀ ingredientsĀ on their own, and it’ll last you several times of making this or anything else.

Cheese Cloth, Kitchen Twine. I used new pantyhose that I had washed but never worn, then cut the foot off and knotted itself.

Directions:

Pour Cider, and maple syrup into a saucepan, medium to large size. Stir. Put your mulling spices in your cheese cloth, tie it shut, place in saucepan. Cook on Medium-High for a few minutes until hot. StirringĀ occasionallyĀ  Don’t boil, you want it to be a toasty warm drink but not boiled. Serve in your favorite mug, or glass. If you have any around, put a cinnamon stick in each mug. Enjoy!
