Pumpkin Eats!

I know I said I would post Pumpkin recipes , but I couldn't resist this one!
Sweet potato and black bean empanada's, They are savory and delish!

Whenever fall comes around, I crave empanada's. My grandma made them from scratch every year and the passion has passed to me.

So I love to try different flavors and textures. I found this one over at 
Naturally Ella, it's super healthy too.

 Add some rice and beans and your set!

Pumpkin eats!

Pumpkin season is almost here!You know what that means, We'll all be out to our favorite pumpkin patches soon, yay! I'm a little fanatical about pumpkin patches. I pretty much spend the entire month of October at my local pumpkin farm, hahaha.

Last year A friend of mine asked if I had been to the pumpkin patch yet? To which I replied with a hardy laugh... Are you kidding!?!
She didn't get it. 

It's funny to me how people go to pick out a pumpkin and leave it out on the front porch till it rots and then just throw it out.
People were so surprised to find out that I actually Cook my pumpkins and yummy food the whole season long, and if there's a pumpkin that for some reason doesn't get used, like the one we carve... You can throw it out in the yard and let it sit. If you put some compost on it you might just get your own patch next year!
So in honor of pumpkin season, I'll be posting great ideas for that wonderful orange squash we all know and love! Here's my first find.

I found this delish recipe over at Cookies & cups 
Fancy Shmancy Krispies !
Can't wait to try these! Head over to cookies and Cups and try these!
Let me know what'cha think.

I heart Estate sales!

My dear bloggie friend Ali over At My third true love  gave me this site, It tells you about all the estate sales in your area, I am hooked! Thanks Ali, hahaha.

I haven't really bought anything big, just little odds and ends. The best deals are on the last day of the sale, thing's are usually marked down to 50-75%!

Here's a few goodies I picked up on my first trip.

 Great vintage napkins

 I have a thing for handmade doilies, i can't help it!
Maybe I need an intervention, hahaha.

 I picked up these really old, glass herb jars

For my new spice rack.

 I found these little pig cut outs, It's just screaming" make me into a chalkboard!"

So I did...

 And last but not least...My favorite!
crocheted clothes hanger!

I got two whole boxes for $2! I love them! I love that someone spent so much time, doing something they loved by making them. And now they sit in my closet. 

Great buys!
