So, the typical Pacific Northwest weather has finally descended upon us. That crazy spell of 80+ days with no rain in sight, has been replaced by foggy mornings, and cool drizzly days.

But, you know what?

I am really digging it. I mean like super straight up loving this weather!

This past week I have been all about hoodies, pumpkin, and my slow cooker. Yay Fall

Big thanks to PAM Cooking Spray for sponsoring this post. You rock!!  

Not to freak anybody out or anything but, 

Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner!! 

Holy cow people! Where did the time go? It feels like just yesterday it was 90 degrees here. Then I blinked and we are smack in the middle of Pumpkin Town, which is on the way to Turkeyville, which dead ends into The North Pole! 

I always say that I am going to plan ahead next year, buy my presents, plan out menus, and all of that good stuff. But, inevitably, I am scrambling around with last minute shopping, wrapping, and baking, keeping me torn in a kabillion different directions, and making me wish I could clone myself, or afford 3 assistants.

I know I have mention that I went to IFBC two weeks ago, and that I caught the flu and was flat on my back for a week and a half (yes I am milking it for all it is worth, trust me), but what I forgot to mention is that I went to a fabulous restaurant for lunch with a big group of beef loving bloggers. It was hosted by WA Beef, and we learned so much about what a fabulous protein source lean beef is. I had zero idea that quality lean beef, as a part of a high protein diet, actually helps lower cholesterol and reduce high  blood pressure! Yup, A fact that made my high strung beef obsessed man very very happy!
