Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Chicken Chili

When the temperature drops I begin to think of a great bowl of warm chili and it is time to get a pot of chili on simmer. When you walk in from a cold rainy day there is nothing like the smell of a great pot of chili on the simmer. I am making a new recipe today that I started working on sometime back and now it is ready to share with all of you. This chili is just delicious and so easy to put together, filled with the flavor of Salsa Verde, vegetables and a great mix of seasons. Lets get this chili cooking!

Whats For Dinner Next Week,10-21-18

I am sitting by the fire today to stay warm and cozy while I work on this weeks meal plan. Winter has definitely arrived here at the cottage plus we have had historical rain fall for this time of the year. I have been busy making sure that my pantry, and freezer inventory is in order. Our cold bins for root vegetables are full going into the winter months and that is great, lots of home grown sweet potatoes, white potatoes and onions. I will be doing some baking and enjoy baking in the oven this time of the year, it makes the house smell so good and just give a cozy and homey feel to the cottage.

Chicken Salad with Fall Salsa

We often times enjoy a lovely salad for lunch or a light dinner. I try to keep some ingredients on hand that I can make one of these salads in just a few minutes as most of the time when I have a salad like this it is a very busy day. I like to keep salad greens and chopped vegetables and fruit on hand in the refrigerator ready to go into a great salad. Another thing we keep on hand is poached chicken breast that we can slice or dice to use in a salad, casserole or soup. These things make putting a great meal on the table in a hurry a lot easier. This is one of the awesome Chicken Salads that I made recently and used one of my new Fall Salsa's to top it off. It is delicious and I sure hope you enjoy it!

Fall Salsa

We love a great salsa here at the cottage and this Fall Salsa is so versatile and delicious that I actually keep some on hand in the refrigerator and have used it in so many different ways. This salsa is a blend of fall fruit and a flavorful dressing that make it a real hit!

Whats For Dinner Next Week,10-14-18

When I started the meal plan for this week, I immediately thought of some comfort food. It was a really rough week last week with the horrible storms hitting our Gulf Coast and leaving such devastation. While in the military we had lived in that area at one time,then later having family members stationed in the area as well.Our hearts just broken when we saw so many of the places we loved gone forever. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all the folks on the coast as they begin to re-build their life.
