Kitchen Gets an Autumn Decor Makeover

Many people decorated their living room for the autumn season, but not me.  Know that when it comes time to decorate I will add touches of the season in my bedroom, bathroom and living room but  my kitchen  is one room that I go all out and  really decorate for the season.
 Know that my kitchen and breakfast nook is where my family and friends gather; it is the room in the house that has the most traffic.  So this room will look like autumn and will have a yummy scent of freshly baked pumpkin pie. 
  I  will decorate the kitchen with the colors of green, orange, gold and brown by adding a autumn leaves printed tablecloth, and seasonal dinner plates, coffee mugs and other kitchen accessories to my bakers rack, china cabinet and counter tops. 
 I will also add silk floral arrangement and swags above my patio doors. My autumn decorated kitchen is eye appealing and welcoming to all.

 Know that I will set a Yankee Candle; spiced autumn 22 ounce jar on top of my refrigerator and will let this candle burn all day long. The fragrance from this candle is delightful; freshly baked pumpkin that is spiced with cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. It is the perfect scented candle for your autumn decorated kitchen.  Friends and neighbors tend to visit more in the autumn months, they come to sit at my kitchen table, drink a cup of pumpkin spice coffee and to enjoy the seasonal decorations. All enjoy the warm and relaxing ambiance.  
Put together a centerpiece for your kitchen that features harvest fruits and flowers.

Whats for Dinner? Baked Potato Soup

After working outdoors today husband and I were really hungry and I needed to make a hearty meal that would satisfy our appetites.  So I checked to see what ingredients I had and  baked potato soup is what we are having for dinner tonight. 

Know that I always make extra baked potatoes because this is the main ingredient in this soup, if you do not eat them you can freeze them and use them later for soups, hash browns and stews.

So today we are working in the yard and while we work I am slow cooking the potato soup.  Stopping periodically to stir the creamy potato soup so that it does not stick.  Later I will run to Panera bread company and pick up some dinner rolls or a loaf of French bread.  

Then I will harvest some herbs from the garden, chop them and blend into whipped butter. Herb butter sure does taste good and I think it will compliment the hearty potato soup.  Baked potato soup is one of my favorite soups.  It is comfort food that is so very satisfying.  Here is my mothers recipe.  

Here is another favorite creamy potato soup that I think you will really enjoy.
