my favorite things: the flame edition

Derfwad Manor put up a challenge: let's list a few of our favorite things. I started making a list, checked it twice and saw a theme developing...I have a thing for orange. MyChelle's Incredible Pumpkin Peel: It smells like heaven, contains no crazy chemicals and helps fade those unsightly red marks, post- 'you've got to be kidding me, I'm an adult for heaven's sake' breakouts. Not that I know anything about that.


Fall leaves: I could walk everyday, rain or shine, if I am greeted by these lovelies.



Mmmmm, sweet potato fries: Burgerville (in the mighty NW) sells 'em but I like to make them myself, in my oven. It makes me think they are low calorie and I'm all about having some illusions at this point. I like mine with BBQ sauce or hummus. And they are soft and easy to eat so they get an A+.


Now, strictly speaking this is not orange. I've taught my kids that referring to red locks as 'orange' is rude, and dangerous. Them are fighting words. But look at this little girl. I love her hair. I've been awestuck and envious of redheads since grade school. It began with my bff in grade school, Kelly, and haunts me to this day: Marcia Cross and Julianne Moore come to mind.


Field of pumpkins: It's the last time (I think) this season you'll have to hear me go ga-ga over these gourds.


Vegan Carrot Cake Rice Cream: No eggs! Tastes great! In my freezer, right now.
Just kidding.

What about you? Sing with me now: These are a few of my favorite things...

Pumpkin scrub, sweet potato fries and red heads...you are a woman after my own heart. What a great list. I have a daughter with the most amazing red hair--ringlets everywhere. Thanks for sharing, Lisa.

You might like my "orange girls" post. Orange is a lovely color. Do you think you could share your recipe for sweet potato fries? I was just about to look for one because of my pantry full of sweet spuds.

You'd like my hubs - I tell him he lives in an Orange Filtered World - meaning he loves Fall, and Basketball, and harvesty things, and Texas Longhorns!

Kimberly said...

Mmmm...I love orange too. And I love this meme. I am stealing it and making a run for it. Mwahahahah!

I love orange--and red. But the sweet potato fries sound wonderful! I second the request for a recipe.

Pamela said...

There is a product called Incredible Pumpkin Peel? This is the best news ever.

Ok, the sweet potato fries: easy peasy.

I cheat, when I can, and buy precut spears at Trader Joes - less pain and mess. I toss the fries with olive oil, salt and pepper (sometimes rosemary because I love it dearly), and bake them at 450 for 20-25 minutes. I usually toss them a few times, so they get equally crispy.

MMmm. I had it for lunch yesterday.

I love orange, too, now that you mention it! I'd add to this list pumpkin scones from Starbucks and of course a whole slew of business books set aflame in orange covers. See my post about those at http://jenniferbdavis.blogspot.com/2007/11/3-orange-books.html.

Mmmm....sweet potato fries. Now I'm hungry.

stephanie said...

I must get the pumpkin peel. And let's have sweet potato fries tomorrow! I could wear my orange sweater! But I'm not getting my hair dyed orange...Sorry.

Okay, no more exclamation points.

Very nice post. I'm so sad I forgot to participate in the favorite things challenge :(

Amy the Mom said...

Ha! Love the last favorite thing!

JCK said...

Too funny on the orange. I'm with you on the convict...I mean the sweet potato fries. I love red hair, too. Thanks for coming by my blog today and I totally understand on the Trader Joe's requirement.

Suzanne said...

mmmm, I love men in orange jump suits, too. Yummy.

K. said...

I seriously love your orange post! I really like the color scheme of your blog, too.

I have to admit it, though. Sweet potato fries unsettle me greatly.

I LOVE the picture perfect redhead. I LOVE redhair on women. I can't pull it off at all, but it's gorgeous!
