With Christmas trees popping up all over town, carols playing on the radio and holiday gift guides making their way to my mailbox, it would be almost easy to forget that one of my favorite holidays of the year is rapidly approaching. Poor Thanksgiving has been stepped on a bit this year, but I haven’t forgotten it. You see, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.

There’s a nip in the air. Yes, I know it’s not much and many of us have yet to put away our summer sandals around here, but, according to the calendar, there should be one. So for today, let’s just pretend.
One of my favorite things about fall is the chance to eat a warm breakfast. I am a huge fan of anything hot for my morning meal. I can remember helping my mom make warm loaves of yummy breads to feed the three growing kids in the house. And though for some families this isn’t breakfast, it is certainly something everyone should know how to make. So, it seemed fitting to make it this month’s Back to Basics recipe.

So right now many of you are probably gearing up for Halloween festivities next week. We are, too! This week will be filled with last minute additions to the mermaid costumes my mother so lovingly put together for both “Butters” and my niece. We will also be decorating pumpkins and cooking some last minute sweets for parties.
While all of this is going on, the kitchen that I use for the Table Top blog is having some touch-ups done. So instead of making a totally rockin’ Halloween recipe for you this week, I thought I would share a few of my fall favorites from the Table Top vault, as well as from some of my favorite Texas bloggers.

There are about a bazillion ways to make potatoes. They are such a versatile vegetable. Think about it. Boil them. Bake them. Fry them. Roast them. You get the idea.
The number of flavor combinations is endless, too. There is always the old standby, salt and pepper. Or maybe you are looking for something a little more zesty like seasoned salt and cayenne. Sour cream and cheese are musts on any baked potato I eat.
This week, I wanted to try something a little different. Fun yet sophisticated, if you will. Part dress up and part party hardy.

Milk comes from a cow, a loaf of bread starts in the field and farmers work every day.
Agritourism–the intersection between agriculture and tourism–is a growing trend fueled by you, the consumer, having an interest in learning more about the food you eat. There are agritourism locations across the state–farms and ranches that offer tours, corn mazes, wineries and more–just waiting for visitors.
The allure of the farm remains strong and the fall season offers many opportunities to dive into outdoor activities. Hay rides, picking the perfect pumpkin, fishing and strolling through the fields are just some of the fall attractions of life on a farm. And if that’s not enough, friendly farm animals are ready to greet those who visit.
