I <3 Fall!!!!!
I love summer with all my heart. I know, I know...this is about fall. Well, I just had to get that in there so no one misunderstands this post. Everyone that knows me knows that I LIVE FOR SUMMERTIME and time off with my family to go to the beach. That being said, I do enjoy the cooler months of fall and lower electricity bills!
Kasey and I just finished decorating for fall. I did it a little early this year just because I am having that Bunco party this Friday. It is a fall theme and that means super cool fall gift bags for the winners! But, I digress....
The things I love about fall are:
The changing colors of the leaves.
The cooler weather (which really never hits good til the end of November and then sometimes we are still wearing shorts).
The time change....I love long walks on a cool evening after dinner with the family. I think we are going to start riding our bikes too.
Watching cool football games at the North Shore stadium.
Decorating and baking!! :)
I am sure there are many other things I love about fall, but these were the one's on my mind.
Here's a great fall recipe that's a family favorite and super, duper easy.
Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
1 Pillsbury Pie Crust 4 Chicken Breasts (I buy bone in and roast it, debone, and skin it myself) 1 Large Cream of Chicken soup Potatoes (to your liking) 1 can carrots Sliced almonds (optional) Salt and pepper to taste
Just roast the chicken for about 25 minutes on 400. Let it cool and debone and skin it. Then pull it apart into bite sized chunks. In a pot, cut up and boil your potatoes then drain. In a large bowl, mix drained potatoes, chicken, cream of chicken soup, drained carrots. Line a pie plate with one of the crusts and pour mixture into it. Top it with the other crust. Poke holes in the top crust to vent. Place pie plate on foil lined cookie sheet to catch the drippings. Bake on 400 for 40 min. or until browned on top. Add almonds when you serve it. YUMMO!!!!! (Note: My family doesn't like green beans in it, but I sure do! Add what you like for veggies)!
I hope you get a chance to try this! It is really easy and is great for left overs!!!
Happy Fall Everybody....well, early happy anyways! Karla
I am happy and blessed!! I have a daughter that brings joy to my life and a husband that loves the Lord. I love being a stay at home mom and I love to play Bunco, read, workout, and spend time with my family!
Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of my favorite verses. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
