Two Teens And Their Mama: Delicious Fall Recipes

Delicious Fall Recipes


It has been a day.  If you've been reading my blog for very long, you know that my mom broke her arm last summer, and eventually had to have surgery because it didn't heal properly.  Everything looked good and she went home to Arizona last month.  Yesterday she was in a lot of pain, and ended up at the ER. A new x-ray showed that the plate/pins have come loose, and her arm has re-broken.  

My sister and I spent the day talking to doctors and figuring out the next step. Long story short, she'll be flying back here to have more surgery and recovery time.  Poor mom.

What does this have to do with delicious fall recipes?  Absolutely nothing, other than the fact that I was too tired to finish the post I had scheduled for today. Instead, I'm sharing some recipes I've been gathering to prepare during October.

By the way, several of them call for pumpkin in the recipe.  I saw on the news tonight that there is expected to be a shortage of canned pumpkin for the holidays, so stock up now while your stores have some!

  6. that's crazy about your mom, I didn't know something like that could happen? How come she has to get the surgery near you guys? While I don't love pumpkin the people in my house do, so I better stock up on canned pumpkin...maybe the pumpkin people are telling us that so we'll rush out to buy some...hehe. I am TERRIBLE at making waffles, but maybe I'll make some pumpkin pancakes for the kids this weekend....

    1. I had no idea it could happen either. She's coming back so the same surgeon can fix things - plus, none of the doctors down there wanted to do it! Yum, pumpkin pancakes!

  11. I missed the intro to all the recipes and didn't see the bit about your mum til just now - so sorry that she's not mending as well as hoped (isn't getting older just full of "fun" stuff at times?) Hope this next lot of fixing up goes well :)

    1. Me too. I'm getting a little worried that there are some other issues going on.

  12. I've never heard of a re-broken arm! So sorry.
    And a shortage of canned pumpkin is not good either! I'll go buy a LOT.

  13. Oh your poor Mom! Dr. Haralee thinks it is a casting and stability issue. Often if people use blood thinners or have diabetes or some other health issues associated with age, the casting is looser. But to re-break, this is a whole new kettle of whys and what can be done to not have a chronic situation. I wish you the best!
    I just made slow cook apple butter for the second time this season. Once from our own Fugi apples and just Wednesday form Pinata apples our neighbor bought us from Eastern Washington. It is very yummy and will be gifts.

    1. Apple butter sounds delicious! I'm getting concerned that there is a chronic problem going on that we're not aware of yet. Hopefully we'll have more answers on Monday.

  14. I am so sorry to read about your mama. Bless her heart. But she is fortunate to have two loving daughters to look after her. Your recipes look delicious. I could eat pumpkin flavored food all year round. A shame we savor it for only a short time each year.
