Friday Favorites – Fall and Food!

wp-1476366379870.jpgWith fall’s arrival bringing cooler temps and glorious days, I’ve had some incredible views this week.  Between the countryside where we live and a visit to a nearby lake, it’s been gorgeous all around me, as you’ll see in the pictures below.

I had some young bakers in the kitchen with me this week.  They made sugar cookies in the shapes of leaves and pumpkins.  It was as much fun making them as it was eating them!

Also in the pictures below you’ll see my morning Quiet Time place.  I love its comfort and soft lights in the early morning.  Liza found a comfy spot, too!

The bottom left picture is dinner at our daughter and son-in-law’s home on Sunday.  It’s a special joy to have family living here so that we can enjoy church and a meal after!  I truly never anticipated living near either of my girls.  I just want them to go where God takes them and their husband, but for now our youngest daugher and her husband are here and we’re enjoying it for as long as God will allow.   It’s a special treat to have an invitation for Sunday dinner!  Both of my girls are great cooks and like to try new recipes.  The meal we had last weekend was a new oone she was trying, and it was really yummy!

The other picture was Katie Brown Chicken that I made for my neighbor who had surgery.  I love making this to take to people.  It’s easy to put together, and it’s a comfort kind of food that’s also good for you!

The pictures below are all from my yard.  Fall allows the roses to bloom again without the threat of the beetles!  I’m enjoying their beauty!  

In the early morning the view out the front windows is breathtaking.  There are the cows, the hills, and the mountains with the sun peeking up and bringing with it a fresh, new day!

When I come back in from my morning walk, I love the view of the front porch.  The rockers got a fresh coat of paint this week, making them even more inviting to sit and enjoy the views!

How has your fall started out?  Have you made any comfort foods or seen anything beautiful in your area?

I pray you’ll have a great weekend.  We have a fun activity planned – I can’t wait to participate in it, then share the pictures with you next Friday!

Find a place where you can hear God’s Word being preached and be faithful to go AND to participate in worship this weekend!

Stay refreshed,
