September 22nd is the Autumn Equinox. We want to help you celebrate this change of seasons at your Hillside Commons apartment. Throw an autumn party with family and friends with delicious autumn food and maybe even a movie. Read our suggestions for how to celebrate below. We hope you enjoy the autumn season here in Oneonta, NY.

Fall Cheese Board

A cheese board is a perfect way to kick off the autumn season. To put together a good cheese board include a variety of cheese such as aged cheddar, a soft cheese, blue cheese, and any other of your favorite varieties. Next, add fruits, such as figs, pears, and grapes. Lastly, add crackers and nuts. Arrange the food on a platter and voila — you have a beautiful cheese board that makes the perfect autumn snack.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

For something sweet at your autumn get together, make these delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars. The recipe comes from A Treats Affair. To make this you’ll need the following ingredients: graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, cream cheese, sugar, eggs, canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and whipped cream.

Caramel Apple Cobbler

Another delicious dessert option is this Caramel Apple Cobbler. It’s a great treat that will get you in the autumn mood in a minute. To make this you’ll need apples, cinnamon, sugar, brown sugar, butter, heavy cream, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, milk, and vanilla extract.

Autumn Movies

We think the perfect way to get in the autumn mood after enjoying cheeses and desserts is to watch a fall-themed movie. Any football film or scary movie will do, but we have a list of some other great ones set in fall to watch: Dead Poets Society, You’ve Got Mail, Stepmom, Dan in Real Life, October Sky, and Days of Heaven.
