Fall Celebration Contest 2016

Fall Celebration Contest 2016

Fall is finally here, and it’s one of my favorite seasons of the year. I remember growing up and our family traveling to our relatives with a dish which was our contribution each year steamed  Thanksgiving Turnup which no one loved and smelled the family station wagon to the high heavens for our-our two-hour trip each year.

 

There are many reasons I love the fall and I have listed some fun links on this page towards the bottom along with some videos to check out.

 

 

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE !!!

Prize HAS been lowered to just $10 GIVEAWAY NOT $100 !!

The contest failed to generate new participation and new membership on a scale that we were looking for and we have to in effect cancel it at this point. 

I know a few of you regularly participated in this so I want to get you something so at the end of this I will award only $10 to a randomly picked winner.

We tried to do too much with this one and offered a Gift Card only to be mailed to people and that didn’t work out – I will talk with a few of you on how to better run our next contest so this will not happen again.

THE PRIZE WILL BE A $10 AMAZON E CARD FOR THE WINNER .

    I love the fall foliage here in the white mountains of New Hampshire. We have people come from all over the country to see our foliage here. The color changes of the leaves are just beautiful and the country roads and mountains are stunning with the bright reds and oranges. I love going on hikes and rides just to see the color change.

    Sweet Cream Cheese Pumpkin Dip

    Ingredients:

    2 cups confectionery sugar
    1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
    1 can (15 oz.) solid pack pumpkin
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
    1 teaspoon frozen orange juice concentrate
    Directions:

    Mix the cream cheese and sugar in a medium sized bowl until well blended. Gradually add in the pumpkin until smooth. Add the cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and orange juice and continue to stir. Pour into a small serving dish and chill until it is ready to be served. Serve this pumpkin dup with ginger snap or graham crackers. For extra presentation points, cut a hole in the top of a small pumpkin and carve out the insides so a small serving dish or bowl can fit right inside.

    I love making applesauce in the crockpot. for some reason I only eat it during fall.
    6 medium apples
    1/2 cup water
    1 tbsp cinnamon or less if you don’t like it sweet
    1 tsp sugar
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    peel and core apples. chop into chunky pieces. place apples in crockpot. in separate bowl combine water, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla extract. Pour mixture over apples and stir so the apples are evenly coated.
    Cook low on 4 hours til apples are soft
    once apples are soft remove from crockpot and use potato masher to mash.
    for creamier applesauce, use a hand mixer.
