Tex Mex Breakfast Burrito

Tex Mex Breakfast Burrito is one of our families go to fast breakfast. A Breakfast Burrito is great for a busy family morning, early start on a road trip, or just because it's a great breakfast item. When I make this recipe, we always freeze part of the recipe or all of it, that way we always have a Burrito ready to go. Just a few seconds in the micro wave and it's ready to eat. This is one of our favorite grab and go breakfast and is packed with Tex Mex flavor.

Apple Cookies With Maple Glaze

When I made the first batch of these Apple Cookies I thought I would have enough to fill the cookie jar, that did not happen. The cookie's went so fast I didn't even have enough to make photo's for this post, the cookies are a big hit here at the cottage. I have made a batch of these cookies every week for a few weeks. This recipe is crunchy on the outside with a nice maple glaze and soft on the inside with wonderful bits of apple. This recipe for Apple Cookies will be one that we make over and over.

Whats For Dinner Next Week 10-23-16

We are in the last full week of October and this month has flown by. I am so excited to go to an annual fall gathering this coming week, we will be seeing old friends and having one of those fabulous Pot Luck Suppers with yummy food. We have really been enjoying the beautiful butterflies in our yard, they are all over our Zinea's as they are on miagration right now and I sure am glad that we are a stop on their journey. Since I have a meal plan every week, it gives me more time to enjoy other things.

Full Plate Thursday 10-20-16 # 298

I am so excited to see all of you today, and really looking forward to our weekly recipe exchange. I have sure been enjoying the fall recipes that are coming to the party every week. I love this time of the year when all the little communities are having harvest carnivals, for young and old alike the carnivals are so much fun. Of course the State Fair of Texas is in full swing and who would even think of going there without have a Corny Dog and maybe a Funnel Cake, (that certainly would not be me!) Lets get this party started, I can't wait to see what you are sharing today!

Fall Decor Inside and Out

When my husband and I decided to downsize about 9 years ago to a tiny cottage, it was long before "Tiny Houses" were as popular as they are today. I love my tiny cottage and it has been so much fun to decorate. The acreage is much larger than the cottage with vegetable and herb gardens,outdoor kitchen and more. We repainted the outside of the house earlier this spring and then we redid all the front flower beds. The beds have had a chance to get started so I am happy to share the progress with you today, plus it is all ready for fall.

White Bean and Sausage Chili

There is nothing better than a comforting pot of chili just about any time of the year, and we do love our chili here at the cottage. This recipe is a hearty chili with a bold flavor and is a little different because I used sausage for the meat in the chili and it is fantastic! I knew it was going to be a great recipe when I could smell it cooking and folks coming in the door would say, what in the world smells so good? We really enjoyed this recipe and sure hope you do!
