And Happy October! Whoosh is exactly what September did. How did we get to October already? After many days of grey, damp, wet weather, our skies have cleared and it has been gorgeous out (and is supposed to continue this way for a couple of days, at least). We had a great time with Colin & Mailing on Wednesday for dinner (BBQ Shrimp!! and salad with lettuce and tomatoes from the garden!)and even managed to have a nice fire in the pit. We saw them again Saturday night for dinner at Mailing's parents.
Friday night I made a new-to-us recipe that was great! Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Chili. I used This Recipe and it was so easy and tasty. Lots of leftovers in both the frig and freezer too. I did end up adding a third can of Rotel tomatoes and also an extra cup or more of water.
Saturday morning Dee and I met up as usual. This time we met at a Manhattan Bagel in Lansdale. It was a great time (as usual) EXCEPT that there was live music and the guy (playing the guitar and singing) had to be the absolutely worst singer I have ever heard. Seriously! Off key and just horrible. That dude played for two hours straight with no break. I thought I would go crazy. LOL
We've been enjoying lettuce and chard from the garden in salads. I've been picking 25-40 cherry tomatoes daily and our large tomatoes are finally ripening!
There are even more on a windowsill in the kitchen. Sandwiches are so much better with garden tomatoes!
I even managed to find time to get back to my stitching this weekend (updates tomorrow).
C&M had come up to PA for a friend's wedding Friday night. The couple are huge history buffs and had their wedding at the Museum of the American Revolution and Ben Franklin officiated the wedding! LOL
It was a great weekend and it's so nice to know that the kids will be back pretty soon for Thanksgiving...and then will be moving back permanently at Christmas! We cannot wait.
I hope your weekend was a good one - let me know what you did.
