It’s Fall in S. Texas?

It is officially Fall on the calendar, but Mother Nature has other ideas. High 90’s with 70% humidity. Oh so much fun.

We can’t let that inhibit our Fall planning, festivities, or cooking.

So at the S.Texas Grocery store, HEB, had all the pumpkins on display. Bumpy pumpkins, smooth pumpkins, white pumpkins, yellow pumpkins. All so fun.

Inspired, and wanting something comforting I made a wild rice and mushroom soup in my instant pot. I am finally figuring that contraption out. I really likes this soup, and my family finished it off quickly.

Then, I had to bake, so scones were in order.

It’s not sweater weather, we are still in shorts and running the AC, and the weatherman says we don’t have anything remotely looking like a cool front on the horizon. Oh well. Until November, we will just have to stay cool, and enjoy the pumpkin displays in the Air Conditioned Grocery Store.
