Since it's cooled off I've been able to turn the oven on again and test out some recipes! After my craft room, the kitchen is my next favorite place to create.
I've started thinking about Thanksgiving.....this is my third year hosting dinner for my family. I was so nervous that first year! And, while I don't have all the kinks worked out, I try to have fun with it and not be so stressed. My biggest obstacle is time management and getting dinner on the table as scheduled and not having everyone starve while they wait. Last year, for each person, I decorated some small mason jars and filled them with a snack mix.
This year I wanted something different that incorporated the flavors of fall - to me, that is pumpkin and apple. I came across a recipe for Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Granola on Allrecipes.com and tested it out this morning. This granola is so yummy, took only 15 minutes to mix up and made my house smell wonderful!

And of course I had to dress them up and make them look nice!
I used the cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the fry box at 9" - you can get 2 of these from a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. I used one of the designs from the Huntington paper pack for the box and the coordinating cardstock in the pack for the other cuts. For the turkey and the sentiment I used the Perfect Fit - Thanksgiving stamp set with the cricut Artiste cartridge. I used Barn Red ink to stamp the turkey.
And I used Cocoa ink for the sentiment and Olive ink for the flourish. I used Goldrush to ink all the edges of each piece.
And here it is all put together.
Cute and yummy! One detail for Thanksgiving done! Yay!
Here is the link to the recipe at Allrecipes.com.
Have a wonderful week!!
