It’s finally starting to feel like fall! Temps don’t get too arctic in Nashville (thank goodness) but we are finally having chilly mornings and cool evenings. Growing up our house had a wood stove, and there’s nothing better to feel warm and cozy. We used to run to it in the morning, freezing, and huddle in front while eating breakfast. Somehow in my memory it feels like it was subzero weather!
If you know someone with a fireplace – or even a backyard chiminea – they will love these spice and herb firestarter packages. They take 5 minutes to make and smell amazing. A perfect Thanksgiving hostess gift!
- Coffee filters
- Embroidery thread and needle
- Dried orange and apple peels
- Cinnamon sticks
- Sprigs of fresh rosemary
Stuff the coffee filters with a handful of the spice mixture. Thread the needle and sew the top opening closed. It’s that simple!
The smell will definitely get you in the holiday spirit. It’s the perfect excuse to make a fire and roast marshmallows!19
