This have been so busy - first being sick and then Master had a last minute project that really has taken us every hour of the day to just get going in the right direction.
I have had a ton of emails this week from friends and also just people writing after reading here or the website. Please know I will get back to as soon as possible. I am not ignoring you! :)
It is getting cooler here in the evening and I am getting so geared up for fall. It is my favorite time of the year and I don't think it is just because my birthday is in the fall - especially not this year in turning 40. Not looking forward to that at all.
I did a Mexican dish in the crockpot on Sunday and it made me get all excited for fall cooking in the crockpot...stews and soups especially! Yummy! The Mexican dish I threw together was 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch strips that I coated in a mixture of taco seasoning and flour - threw them in the crock, then added half a bag of stir fry peppers and onions, 1 can of diced tomatoes with the juice, 1 can green diced chilis (well almost the whole can), 3/4 cup salsa, 1 can beans drained and rinsed (I wanted to add 1 can black beans and 1 can pinto beans but I didn't have both so only one can of black beans went in). I cooked for 6 hours and then served over some rice topped with some sour cream and grated Monterey jack cheese.
Well I need to get busy as we have a ton of things to do. Hopefully tonight I can start catching up on blogs, comments and emails!
