Fall Fashion: Assemble Your Brand New Outfit

The summer season is coming to an end. Soon it will be time to put away swim gear, shorts and sunglasses and start digging out sweaters, slouchy hats and scarves. Most of us haven’t put away our spring wardrobes and plan to use many of the same pieces of apparel for the colder fall months. However, fall fashion is much different from spring fashion in terms of materials, colors, cuts and accessories. Check out some of our new women’s fall fashion favorites for the upcoming season to save big while assembling some autumn outfits.

Fall Warm-Up: Fall Casseroles to Try This Week

Now that it’s fall, we’re trading in our summer salads for meals to warm us up! One of our favorite things to make when it’s cold is a good casserole. Not only do they warm us up, but they also carry the convenience of a one-dish meal! That translates to easy to make and easy to clean up! Here are 5 fall casseroles to try this week.john-wayne-casserole

What Would John Wayne Eat? According to Cook’sInfo.com, actor John Wayne submitted (at least part) of a recipe for a casserole to Cooking with Love from Cara and Her Friends in the late 1970s. The recipe has since been passed on and modified by cooks across the country, but we liked the one Amanda’s Cookin put together. It’s ground beef mixed up with all the right ingredients for a delicious meal. With jalapeños and taco seasoning, it’s got a kick, but the cheese and sour cream cool it down enough to savor it.

chicken-dressingComfort Chicken Chicken is probably the best base for a good casserole — add dressing to it and you have your one-dish meal! This chicken and dressing casserole comes from South Your Mouth. It’s pretty easy to make — boil the chicken, saute the onions, toss in some cornbread dressing and bake! It’s more complicated than that and there are a few more ingredients, but the process is pretty simple. It’s the perfect weeknight meal the whole family can look forward to and you won’t wear yourself out putting it together.    reuben-casserole


Sandwich Casserole 
Bet you’ve never thought to make a casserole out of your favorite sandwich! Well, Winner Dinners did the thinking for you with this recipe for baked reuben casserole. It’s all of the ingredients of the classic sandwich chopped up, layered and baked for a very heavy one-dish meal. Winner, indeed.

meatball-sub-casseroleSince We Already Crossed That Line… Here’s a meatball sub in the form of a casserole! Bake at Midnite came up with this one. It’s pretty easy to put together if you like making meatballs. You just put them in a baking dish, line the edges with garlic bread and top with sauce and cheese. It’s all the magic of a meatball sub without getting too sloppy to eat in front of other people.  That means you can lose all the extra napkins and eat your sandwich with a fork and knife like a civilized human being.

Something Borrowed, Something chicken-cordon-bleu-casseroleBleu Chicken cordon bleu is Swiss in origin, but it’s been a favorite in the United States for at least a half-century. It’s ham and cheese wrapped in chicken to create a delightful surprise with each bite. Gonna Want Seconds took this idea and ran with it — she chopped the ham, cheese and chicken into bits and tossed in noodles to round it out as a one-dish meal. If you don’t want to go to the trouble of making the Swiss classic, the Americanized version is just as good and easier to make.

As much as we hate to say goodbye to warm weather, LTD is excited to get to all the things that make fall and winter fun! From casseroles to warm up our meals on cold nights to holiday gifts to make the snowy days brighter, look to LTD to make any season your favorite season.

Fall Weddings: Tips for Surviving the First Year of Marriage

fall-weddingFall is inching its way toward us with the cool breezes and changing leaves. With change all around, it makes it a beautiful time for a wedding and the transitions that come with it. But those transitions in the first year of marriage can be tough to manage, so we came up with a few ideas to get through the tougher times to make your life-long commitment a happy one. Here are 9 tips for surviving the first year of marriage.  

“We” Think in terms of “we” rather than “me.” Remember this is a partnership and you’re no longer doing what’s best for you, you’re doing what’s best for you and your partner. When you work together as a team, you’re streamlining what needs to get done and making the structure of your marriage stronger.  

Common Goals Know what your priorities are and that they are aligned with your spouse’s priorities — kids, money, ambitions. If you don’t have common goals, you may end up growing in different directions. When you’re not staring down at the same destination, you may just end up in two different places.

Bend When you are in a relationship, you continue to grow as a couple and that requires flexibility. If you’re flexible, you are open to change and are able to adapt to the good things as well as the not-so-good things.

fall-weddingNo Tallies As with any relationship, expect disagreements. Every couple fights, but a fight is not the end of the world or your relationship as long as you don’t keep score. If you keep score (tallying what your partner does wrong and what you do right), it’s like planning a fight; you want to keep your thoughts and actions to be positive to keep your marriage thriving.

The Faults in Our Spouses Resist pointing out what your spouse is doing wrong. No one likes to be criticized — any negative ideas and thoughts between you and your partner only get worse when one person nags the other person. Try to be constructive about how you communicate your needs and wants and remember to forgive.

The Faults in Ourselves Take responsibility for your actions. No matter how bad your partner may hurt you, the only thing you can control about the relationship is your actions. If you do something to upset your partner, apologize for your misdeeds and move on. If you recognize your own faults, it’s hard for others to stay mad for too long. And remember to ask for forgiveness.  

Pause When something gets you worked up, pause before you react and remember to pick your battles. Though something might set you off, it may not be something worth fighting over. If you take a moment to think about what the problem is and what’s at stake, you may be less likely to turn a little bump in the road into a catastrophe.

fall-weddingYou’re #1! Be selfless, but remember to put yourself first. You have to be happy with you and all that you do before you can be happy with anyone else.

Marriage Is a Full-Time Job Work on your marriage every single day. We exercise, eat well and take showers every day to take care of ourselves; our relationships need daily maintenance to thrive, too.

A happy home is our top priority at LTD Commodities. Whether you need holiday decor to make it more welcoming or you’re looking for games to play on date night, we have hundreds of products to build a place you want to live and grow as a family.
