It happens every year: Summer goes by in the blink of an eye and it’s over before we know it. But just because fall is quickly approaching doesn’t mean we have to cease all outdoor fun and hide inside until spring rolls around. Autumn weather offers its own charming ambiance for outdoor activities, from hiking and camping to leaf peeping and picnicing.
Don’t let the end of summer stop you from enjoying the outdoors. Instead, pack some of these great fall dishes, grab a picnic blanket (and maybe a sweater), and enjoy it!
Nutella Swirled Pumpkin Bread
Bacon, Fig, and Arugula Sandwiches
Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Launched in 2013, Negroni Week was created as an effort to raise money for charities around the world. Participating bars and restaurants mix classic Negroni cocktails that result in donations to their charity of choice.
This year, Negroni Week takes place from June 4th to June 10th. Here are some Negroni cocktails for you to ask for the next time you’re out with friends (or to even try making at home)!
The Breakfast Negroni: Great for brunches or a late night pick-me-up, this drink combines orange marmalade and an Irish tea infusion for a the right amount of caffeine, sweetness, and kick.
Sparkling Negroni Punch: This sweet beverage is perfect for parties; light, bubbly, and delicious! You can serve in tall glasses with fruit for garnish or leave in a punch bowl with a ladle for guests to serve themselves.
FroGoni: This drink is half refreshing smoothie, half slushy cocktail. It’s perfect for enjoying at summertime BBQs, relaxing by the poolside, and even lazy hot nights on your balcony or porch.
Blood Orange Negroni: Blood oranges not only lend a stunning color to beverages, but a perfect blend of tartness and sweetness too. Add an entire slice to the finished cocktail for a real show-stopper!
Original Negroni: You can’t have a list for Negroni Week without including the classic Negroni. This simple and delicious cocktail includes just 3 ingredients—and an ice cold glass!
