Countdown to HALLOWEEN!: 10 Days :)

 #10 
Thankful Rolls

This is such a sweet and creative idea! 
1. Write "thankful prompts" on small pieces of aluminum foil. 
2. Make the dough for your rolls and roll into balls. 
3. Put the strip of foil, folded in between two balls of dough and bake. 
4. When you pull them apart they have a message to be answered as your family shares a meal. 
This is great for the Thankful Fall Season! :)

 Find more about this idea on this website! :)

#14 - Mini Caramel Apples

I found this idea on the Dating Divas blog. :) 

These are made by using a melon baller to scoop out mini "apples". Soak the apple bites in lemon juice or sprite to keep them fresh until you are ready to dip. Then coat the outside with melted caramel. :) So yummy & so much easier to eat then a whole caramel apple!

Fall Favorite: White Chicken Chili

 
Ingredients:
  • 1 medium onion (I use onion flakes... SO MUCH EASIER & you don't cry cutting them) About a 1/4 cup)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil (For sauteing the onions, garlic and peppers)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans Great Northern or Pinto beans (I use pinto!)
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley (I like to add just a touch more
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 Tbsp. flour (Or a little more if needed... this is just for thickening purposes)
  • 2 cups cooked, cubed chicken

Directions: 
  1. Pre-cook your chicken. I cook mine on high in the crock pot (in water) for two hours. I added 2 chicken boullion cubes, salt and pepper to the water. 
  2. Cut prepared chicken into bite sized cubes.
  3. In a large saucepan cook onion, jalapeno and garlic in oil until tender.
  4. Stir in chicken broth, beans, parsley, lime juice and cumin. 
  5. Boil mixture, then reduce heat. 
  6. Stir in flour then add chicken to mixture and stir well. 
  7. Boil for 2 minutes or until thick. 
*I like to serve this chili over white rice.
**If I make a large recipe of this (doubled or tripled) I add rice to the actual chili. If you do this make sure to add atleast 1 cup EXTRA chicken broth, even if it looks like too much. (The rice will soak some of the broth up overnight.
***Like a lot of chili's this one tastes best when eaten the next day. ;)
****Also great served with cheese or tortilla chips. You may also be interested in:
