4 Fall Adventures to Make Breakfast even Better
Crisp air. Leaves changing. Fall coats. October is the true mark of autumn at its finest. And with so many outdoorsy activities that feel “fallish” — most would agree it’s the best month to get out there and experience the season! That’s why we’ve created a list of adventures, chock full of breakfast tips. Get together with the kids and choose one adventure for each week of the month.
Breakfast Tailgate: Football Sundays = tailgates, of course. But save the burgers and hot-dogs for night games; for a noon kickoff — get set for a breakfast tailgate, complete with milk steamers for the kids and lattes for the adults. You can even set-up the grill and cook up French toast, breakfast pizza (will link to new recipe) or griddled eggs in a pan.
Grab them Apples: Fall is the best time to visit an apple orchard. Your kids will love learning about apple varieties and how they’re grown, and they’ll be able to taste the many types and choose favorites. Then, bring a bushel (or two) home and get working in the kitchen as a family. Apple recipes are endless, from traditional applesauce to apple muffins (recipe to come).
Pick A Pumpkin: Like apple orchards, pumpkin farms are a fabulous, festive place to visit in the fall. But if you don’t live in driving distance, you can easily check-out a local grocery to pick your perfect pumpkin. Let each person in your family choose the pumpkin to best suit his personality and then carve the pumpkins as a family. Don’t toss the seeds! Toast them up and add them to your morning cereal and milk for a delicious crunch.
Get Crafty: Changing colored leaves make for great crafting material. Take a family walk and collect a bunch that have fallen, then use them to make new place-mats for breakfast. The kids will be excited to eat off (and out) of their artwork, and it helps to bring a bit of fall inside your kitchen, too.
