There's no place better to be than home on a cold blustery day! There's no room in my house that's as cozy in the fall as my kitchen since it's always the warmest place to be! It's also usually the best smelling room in my home as there's bound to be something good in the oven, stove top or the crockpot!
It was 40 degrees when we woke up today! Just a few days ago I had to turn on the AC it was so hot. We have our first freeze warning for tomorrow so I went outside this morning and brought in some chilies and basil to dry in my dehydrator and some other veggies to use up this week.
It's kind of early for us to have a freeze so I left a few things in the garden and I'll just cover them. We might only get one night of freezing temps and then it could be back to warm weather.
Taco Soup simmering in the crockpot for dinner tonight. I think I'll make some cornbread with that. Here's the recipe I use Southern Food Taco Soup. So I have the oven on, the dehydrator and the crockpot!
My very very cute "Home" pillow from Kathy at Kathy's Cottage is on my kitchen window seat. Isn't the red polka dot door just the sweetest thing! She has an Etsy shop but you have to be quick! Kathy's creations go fast!You can click on the picture to enlarge it and see all the cute details Kathy added.
I made a plum blackberry crisp for afternoon coffee. Yummy! I had half a bag of frozen blackberries from our bushes left and added that to 6 plums. I made the topping using juice and olive oil this time instead of butter (gotta watch my cholesterol apparently it's creeping up every year). It turned out really good! I don't have a recipe - I just threw things together and hoped for the best!
Those bowls are from the fabulous Country Living Collection at K Mart. So much cute stuff! I bought a few things which I'll share next week.
Well, I think I'm going to snuggle under some covers and watch my Netflix DVD "Little Dorrit" now. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
