Fall is such a beautiful time of the year.  We have been working on school, cleaning up the garden for fall plowing and working on an afgan.  Not a lot going on.  Yesterday evening we gave Mr. Rooster away.  YEAH!  We gave him to a family that wants to hatch baby chicks for their young daughter to take of.   He will be so happy.

Yesterday, it was rainy and foggy here.  Then the temperatures dropped quite a bit during the night.  It was 36 degrees this morning when we got up.  The sun is out now though and it looks like it will be a beautiful day.  Yesterday, I was reading a blogger friend’s post, http://theboydbunch.wordpress.com/, and she was having crockpot parmesan chicken for supper.  I thought that sounded good and I had already planned on having chicken for supper so I looked up a recipe for it.  I’m not sure if this is the same recipe she used or not but it was really good.  I got my recipe from betty crocker.  I did make a few changes. 

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan with Penne Pasta

1 egg, 1/3 cup bread crumbs, 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp. italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast, 1 jar spaghetti sauce, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, 2 2/3 cups penne pasta.

1.  Spray crockpot

2.  In a small bowl, beat egg until foamy.  In another bowl, mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Dip chicken into egg, then coat with bread crumb mixture.  place in crockpot.  Cover chicken with spaghetti sauce.

3.  Cover and  cook on low for 5 to 6 hrs.   (I cooked mine on high for 4 1/2 hrs.)

4.  Cook and drain pasta.  Serve chicken on top of pasta.   Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.  (I used mozarella).

Makes 4 servings.

I hope you all enjoy your day and God bless.

Ain’t that two beautiful girls!

Yesterday was very nice here.  Wonderful tempertures, beautiful sunshine.  Our church sponsors, once a year, a sportmans banquet, or as we call it a “critter chompin”  It is a lot of fun with lots of good fun.  We had a guest speaker who brought a good message.  We also had some funny stories but of course the highlight of the evening was the food.  We really didn’t have much wild “critter” though.  One bear dish, mostly deer and just regular food.  I took tuna cakes, homemade rolls, a molasses (stack) cake, and some hot cider.  There was so much food it would be impossible for me to name it all.   I’m so sorry you missed it, Dave.

Today has been another beautiful day.  I think though the forecasters are calling for rain the first of the week.  I think I better hurry out to my “green swing” and enjoy the beauty that God has created.  Take care and God bless.

Here’s a few more fall pictures.  The maple tree is in our yard close to the house.  It gives wonderful shade to one of my swing areas.  The other picture is in the field behind our house.  The leaves are almost all gone now but the maple is still holding on to some color.  Today is a big day in our house, my baby girl’s birthday.  We will be having a little party tomorrow with friends.  I let them off with half school today.  You gotta do something special on birthdays.   Another beautiful day here in Floyd.  Sunshine, wind, (almost always wind) temperatures in the 50’s.  Chilly enough to have a fire this evening-around 40 degrees now.  Inside the house is nice and toasty thanks to our hard work yesterday.  I think Saturday has been set aside as another wood cutting day, if weather permits.   It is a wonderful feeling to enter winter knowing you have enough wood to keep you and your family warm.  I think these are blessings we sometimes take for granted.   Well time for me to get to work.  God Bless.

Here are some more pictures taken on the back side of the road leading to our house.  This little creek has always been a favorite of mine.   Most of the pretty fall colors are disappearing now.  They are not near as vibrant as they were.  Still pretty though.  Important things have happened today.  However time does not allow me to tell them right now as it is almost time to leave for church tonight.  I will post on these things tomorrow.  We had a great time at the “critter chompin” last night.  I won a $20.00 gift certificate to Cracker Barrel.  We are all looking forward to dinner out sometime soon.   Tonights menu at church is mostly leftovers from the ‘critter chompin” and from the business meeting we had today at church.   Turkey Chili, Mexican Cornbread, ham biscuits, cheese ball, cakes, and who knows what else.  We finish our study on Daniel tonight and then begin a study on Revelation.  The two just seemed to go together.   Time to leave.  God Bless.

Here’s some pictures taken on the back side of our road.  It is a very beautiful drive.    We’ve been down to Dave and Jess’ for a few days working on the bathroom project.  Making progress.  Commode is set and walls are ready for paint.  Jess hopes to have it ready in time for Thanksgiving.  I think we’ll make it in time.  Temperatures here are nice today.  Upper 60’s.  The sun is shining.  A beautiful fall day.  Dad is home and has suggested a hike on one of the many trials here on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The girls are hurrying to finish school  and get ready for the hike.  It promises to be a really nice afternoon.  I hope everyone enjoys their afternoon as much as I am planning on enjoying mine.  God Bless.

Fall Colors

Here is a picture taken from our back porch.  The trees are really getting some color to them.  This one is a little late getting color.  I hope to get some really good fall pictures to post.  The temperatures have been a little cool here, overcast and dreary.  Not good weather for picture taking.  School has been going pretty good.  I read this ladies blog and she talked about how they took about 30 minutes every morning to pick up and clean up.  We have been trying this out and it works so much better for us.  I can concentrate on school then and I am not distracted by housework that needs to be done.   Speaking of school,  it’s time for us to begin.  God Bless
