RECIPE: Warm Fall Punch

 This is a delicious drink for the season.  A change from cider and perfect for gatherings or drop-in visitors on Halloween night.  I received this recipe last year from a friend's sister.

Warm Fall Punch
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
2 cups orange juice
¾ cup lemon juice
1 tsp. almond extract
2 quarts water (64 ounces / 8 cups)
In a large saucepan combine 2 cups water and sugar.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly with whisk.  Boil about 5 minutes.  Add o.j., lemon juice, and almond.  Stir, add 2 quarts water and heat through.  Store in a container in the fridge and enjoy a warm mug full whenever!
Makes about 3 ½ quarts (112 ounces / 14 cups).

Decorate with Yarn Pumpkins

I saw Make and Takes Pumpkin Yarn Craft and knew they'd look good in my house as decorations!  Follow the directions carefully and your pumpkins will be great!  I made some to give away as prizes for a Lil' Pumpkin Trivia Game at a baby shower last Friday.
