Five Things To Do This Fall

Fall | Sacramento Street

1. Take advantage of these beautiful, clear and chilly days before the weather changes.


2. Take a road trip to go Apple picking (something I’ve always wanted to do).


3. Go shopping for key layering pieces like this sweater, coat, scarf and booties.


4. Try a few new recipes – like this banana bread and this fig appetizer for a dinner party.


5. Enjoy lazy Sundays reading a book or magazine with no agenda to worry about.


Do you have things that you want to do this fall?

thanksgiving ensemble . . .

Thanksgiving is just a few short days away (I’m counting down the hours and minutes). Although I’m not hosting this year, I’ve been cooking up my families delicious cranberry sauce (recipe here). This year I made three batches – yes, I’m a cranberry sauce-aholic and I have to be sure there are leftovers for the next day.

When thinking about what to wear this year I wanted something comfy and chic. A grey knit sweater with a camel coat is one of my favorite color combinations this season – then spicing it up with a pair of Dries heels and a fur scarf makes it the perfect amount of chic.

What are all of you thinking of wearing for Thanksgiving this year? I can’t wait to be on the road to my aunt and uncle’s.

comfort food . . .

Since the air is growing cooler all I want to eat at night is comfort food. So, I’ve been turning to My Baking Addiction for inspiration in the kitchen. From soup, to pastas, to baked goods – this blog has it all and let me tell you, each recipe I’ve made is better than the last.


On the menu for this week, Mac and Cheese with Roasted Chicken, Goat Cheese, and Rosemary – I have a feeling it’s going to be heavenly.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound dried rigatoni
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, crushed
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 cups shredded roasted chicken
  • salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS:
1. Place a large pot of salted water over high heat and bring to a rapid boil. Add the oil and rigatoni to the water and cook according to the directions on the package, 10-12 minutes.
2. While you are waiting for the water to boil, pour the cream into a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the rosemary and garlic to the cream and bring it to a simmer – take care not to let it boil over. Allow the cream to reduce by about half.
3. Stir in the goat cheese and chicken and continue cooking it till the cream coats the back of a spoon.
4. Thoroughly drain the pasta. Add the pasta to the sauce. Coat the pasta in the sauce and simmer over low heat for a few minutes. Serve hot.

I’m Loving . . .

I’m all about the classics this season – it definitely makes it easier to get ready in the morning. Grey, off white and camel are my go to colors for the entire season.


This mac & cheese w/ roasted chicken, goat cheese, and rosemary looks like a decadent winter treat for a cold night at home.
You can never have enough letterpress cards and these are stunning. I’m putting them on my Christmas wish list (hint hint).

I’ve been trying to figure out where I could put a fiddlehead fig tree in my apartment, but there just isn’t enough room – believe me I’ve looked in every corner. I love the mix of the fig branch with the tree in the background. One day I will have my own!
