I wanted to get back to baking and sending more goodies into Jerry's work so I made Pumpkin Cream muffins with Kathleen as my helper. :-)
A few ingredients to get started....

I also made another yummy crock pot meal:
Chicken and veggie bake
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
black pepper to taste
1 tsp. garlic powder
16 oz bottle fat-free Italian salad dressing
2 15 oz. cans whole potatoes drained
1 lb. frozen Italian veggies or green beans (we used the green beans)
1. Sprinkle chicken with pepper and garlic powder
2. Put chicken in bottom of slow cooker. Pour 1/2 of salad dressing over meat making sure all pieces are glazed
3. Add potatoes, vegetables and pour the remaining salad dressing over top.
4. Cover, cook on high 4 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
Oh and another great tuna casserole recipe I found in Gooseberry Patch family recipes cookbook was so yummy! The girls loved it!
When Fall arrives I like visiting shops such as Bath and Body to get some great scents to add around our home.
Fun tissue boxes...who could resist?
I saw this little bird the other morning going under our flower box on the deck to get items for a nest.
This week I'm getting ready to start a new cardio program...Turbo Jam!
Kathleen has been building with her cups again, this time on the kitchen table!
She will sit for over an hour stacking and re stacking in different patterns...my little architect! ;-)
