Sausage-y Goodness and Gingerbread Leaves

Sausage-y goodness. Those are the words straight from Autumn's mouth, and they made me smile. She loves sausage. LOVES IT!

My house smelled good. All. Day. Long. This morning, Abigail and I made gingerbread leaves.

Yes, we thought it was too early for men, so we made leaves and acorns instead. Cloves. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Ginger. Yum. It smelled heavenly.


This afternoon, the girls and I made Sausage Spinach Turnovers.

They are a little time consuming- but worth every minute. I promise. And what is better than sausage-y goodness? Nothing.

Except finishing the meal off with a few gingerbread leaves.

What a great idea using gingerbread "leaves" for this time of year. I just always think of them as gingerbread men!

That's a good idea! Maybe some gingerbread turkeys for Thanksgiving!
God bless.
