Fall Bucket List + Recipe

I am so proud of myself for remembering that this Friday is the Autumnal Equinox! I'm not sure why but it always seems to sneak up on me and then I can't do anything fun or "fall-y", as Brian would say, to celebrate. So now you have a few days heads up too :) We've already planned a date night in with some kind of Pumpkin or Apple dessert and Spaghetti squash for dinner. We're also planning to watch some kind of Fall movie, so if you have any suggestions, send them my way! 

I have been looking forward to Fall for awhile now. If you couldn't tell by the snatch of a picture on the right, this list was actually made in August. Before the Eclipse. Yup... 
I love the crisp cool in the air. I love the fact that school starts (I have to stay away from the stores or I'll end up buying a whole lot of school supplies I don't need). I love the rainy days. I love raking leaves. I'm actually surprised I forgot to put that on the list...
I feel like good things happen in the Fall. Not to mention how beautiful the changing leaves are, and the fact that I can finally wear sweaters!

So, in the spirit of good things and Fall, I thought I would share my mother's recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies :) I've yet to find a better one. Plus the recipe makes a million (like 5 dozen or something crazy like that), so you can cook them up and share them with your neighbors :) Or, freeze them in balls and stash them for when you need a quick treat.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Cup shortening
3 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 12 oz. package chocolate chips
4 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups canned pumpkin

Cream together shortening, sugar, and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. 

Thanks for dropping by! What is your favorite part of fall? What are you looking forward to?
