Today is the last day of August! You know what that means…Autumn is coming. I just can’t tell you how tickled I am about Autumn. It’s the beginning of a very busy season. One that goes from September to the first week in January.
This week I start tucking away all the sea blue and sandy colored decorations I put out in celebration of Summer. Autumn decorating is my second favorite only after Christmas. I adore the colors of Autumn, pumpkin orange…sunflower yellow.
I also start planning upcoming events. There is a fall festival or two and a huge Autumn Family Party complete with a pumpkin carving contest and a bountiful lunch. Then the festivities surrounding Thanksgiving, like Thanksgiving lunch at Baby Sister’s and Black Friday Shopping on the day after. And December is absolutely full of fun things. This is the season that you won’t hear any apologies from me regarding my love of only doing fun things…this is the fun time of year Peeps.
I’m finishing out August with an easy crock pot recipe. If you haven’t tried this already, you’re going to LOVE it. If you have this already in your recipe box…this is a reminder, pull it out and use it! (You can add other things to this if you want, but this is the easy-peasy version)
White Chicken Chili
* 3 chicken breasts
* 3 cans Great Northern Beans
* 2 jars med. hot salsa
* small block of montery jack cheese (cubed small)
Use a crock-pot liner…put in the chicken breasts, beans, and salsa. Cook on low for 8 hours.
Take chicken out of crock-pot and shred with 2 forks.
Put chicken back in and add cheese…cook for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve with Fritos!
This is too easy to be good but it’s GREAT. The whole house will be full of this amazing aroma in a matter of a few hours.
