Autumn is one of my most favorite times of the year! We enjoy decorating for the season and beginning our Autumn traditions. This Season of Thankfulness is a month long celebration for us.
On the first Saturday morning in November we kicked off our season with our Harvest Oatmeal Breakfast. It's the only time of year that we take a whopping THREE hours to prepare this special treat for our family.
Jessica and I rose early to begin our preparations of peeling, slicing, and sauteing apples, both kinds of raisins, and baking muffins.
We set out our quaint little dishes for brown sugar, real butter, almonds.
We boiled water in our tea pot and poured over the raisins to get them moist and plump. We let them sit for about 10 minutes, then drained them. We found this great leaf shaped plate on clearance at Raley's.
The oatmeal was the quickest part of the morning. We then sat together at the table for prayer and fellowship with the family.
Each of us then chose the toppings we wanted for our breakfast.
Do you have a special breakfast that your family enjoys during this Season of Thankfulness?
