These are a Few of My Favorite Things: My Favorite Fall Breakfasts

It’s finally feeling like fall.

Or at least Georgia’s version of fall.

I was beginning to worry it would never arrive and cozy sweatshirts would be a thing of the past.

Last Friday, when Reed and I headed up to Wisconsin, it was a not-so-fall-like 100 degrees in Columbus. I had serious doubts as to whether or not the plane had enough runway to take off.

Don’t worry.

It did.

We landed in Chicago and then drove up to my mom’s, arriving just before midnight.

By 8:00 the next morning, Alli and I were at the starting line of our ‘make-up’ 1/2 marathon. (You may remember, the one we had planned on running a couple of weeks ago was cancelled due to weather.)

Guess what the temperature was?

Go ahead.


50 degrees!

That’s 5 – 0.

A bit of a change from the previous day.

This was Alli’s first 1/2; I am so proud of her!

A couple of years ago, she had back surgery and while recovering, she set a goal to run a 1/2 marathon.

I was honored to be her running buddy.

The other highlight of the weekend was getting together with some good friends for a Packer Party!

Once upon a time, the kids outnumbered us 9 to 6.

On Monday, we drove back to Chicago for the ‘work’ part of the trip.

We flew back home on Wednesday, and were greeted with temperatures in the low 80’s.


I can walk out to the mailbox in the afternoon and not come back in dripping with sweat.

I’ve even worn a sweatshirt in the morning!

Kind of a big deal.

But the best part?

I’m finally in the mood for fall breakfast foods!

So without any further, ado, here it is: My favorite fall breakfasts. I hope you give them a try!

  1. All the pumpkin 🙂 I also like butternut squash and especially love it when it’s in ravioli. Congrats to Alli on her first half marathon and you for being her buddy! The weather difference between the south and north are surreal. In Florida it’s still in the 90s a lot of the time, but the humidity does seem to be getting more bearable.

  2. I’ve seen butternut squash recipes, but have been reluctant to use them. For some reason I just can’t wrap my head around what it would taste like. If you have a favorite recipe, send it my way! I’m willing to give it a try! Hope you are doing well, Dorothea!
