Colors of Fall?

This week's challenge on the Photo Challenge Blog is to photograph the 'Colors of the Season.' I've been patient for three days now.. waiting to see some of those amazing Fall colors that we normally see in Colorado. As luck would have it, a fog vaguely reminiscent of something you'd see in a Stephen King movie decended upon my town as the challenge was issued and I can't even see the ROAD, let alone the COLOR! I'm waiting and watching for one of those hideous  3 foot long mosquito looking things to slam into one of my windows! (Stephen King movie). Yes, the fog is bad!

I took this photo around Noon today off of my back patio.

In a true effort to snuff the fog, Ashli and I decided to make some Fall Colored Food!
We pulled her "helper's chair" over to the island and set forth on our mission to create whole wheat pumpkin, raisin, walnut muffins. (From scratch!) 

Ashli was a VERY big help!

YUMM! They came out super moist, and the perfect pumpkin color!

Why stop there? We're in the ZONE! So we decide to make some coconut macaroons. Those of you who know me know that I am a firm believer that cocunut should be it's own food group!

Ashli proved to be invaluable with the mixer while Momma was getting Pumpkin Muffins out of the oven =o)
She only whined about her arms getting tired once!

Mmmmm not too bad for my first attempt. Perfectly light, moist and oooooooooh so coconutty!
Definitely a great way to waste a foggy fall day!

How the pic of Ashli!!! Wasn't that fog COOL?!?!?! That was the first time in many years that I have seen fog like that here. It reminded me of living in L.A. again....*shiver*.
