Fall Favs

There’s just something about this time of year – it’s my absolute favorite!  For me, Fall is magical.  It’s a very special time when we decorate our homes, prepare for the holidays and share some great times with family and friends.  Fortunately for us, Fort Bend has so many Fall fun festivities that make it easy to enjoy the season, and we’re bringing you some of our favs in this issue.  Whether you want to enjoy the cooler weather in an amazing autumn display, attend a rodeo, get your holiday shopping started in style or share a sneak peek at some incredible Christmas creations with friends, check out what’s happening this month on page 6.

Another Fall fav of mine is that it’s the official kick off to the holiday season and gatherings abound.  If you need help finding that perfect bottle of wine for your “hostess with the mostess,” Dr. Jeffrey Kralik can help with his column this month:  The Key to Bringing the Right Wine?  Know Your Audience.

If you’re looking for a new favorite recipe for Thanksgiving, we can help with that as well.  We share two of my personal favs – stuffing and Turkey Cranberry Dinner Rolls – on page 10.  Gobble, gobble!

Speaking of Thanksgiving dinner, I ran across this little piece of literary genius that sums up my sentiments about the annual feast:

“May your stuffing be tasty

May your turkey be plump,

May your potatoes and gravy

Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious

And your pies take the prize,

And may your Thanksgiving dinner

Stay off your thighs!”

I couldn’t find the author of this profound prose, but I feel pretty certain it was a woman.

I wish each of you a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

Stay focused,
