Here's the table set up with the paper products, leaves, acorns, flowers, pumpkins, candy corn, and jars filled with corn kernels and candles.
Here's our living room mantle covered with leaves, acorns, pumpkins, fall scented candles and more corn kernels. A closeup of the leaves and acorns (and yes, I'm keeping these up all fall)

- Hot apple cider
- Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup: I doubled the recipe, added an extra can of black beans, used fat free half and half instead of the heavy cream, and added about 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
- Brown sugar glazed ham with rolls
- Veggies and curry dip (1/2 c mayo, 1/2 c sour cream, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp minced onion, 1 clove garlic minced, 2 tsps white vinegar, 1 tsp horseradish, 1 tsp curry powder)
- Pumpkin Pasta: I doubled the recipe, omitted the sausage (since I don't eat meat, but think it would add a nice savory dynamic to compliment the dish), used fat free half and half instead of heavy cream, added 1/4 tsp cayenne and a tablespoon of brown sugar.
Several friends brought assorted fall desserts, including; pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pudding, and pumpkin pie. It was all so yummy.
