An autumn supper

We had our dear friend and neighbor, Pam, over for dinner and a game of Sequence last night.  We are so blessed to have Pam for a neighbor; she has always been a true friend to us and we trust her completely.  We enjoy getting together when we can. 

I decided we would eat at the kitchen table instead of the dining room, just because it's cozy and comfortable and just right for three people.  So I lit one of my new fall scented Yankee candles and got my kitchen ready.  

I put my new owl place mats on my kitchen table for us to use.

With the advent of rain and much cooler temperatures, I decided to make a pot of chili.

I served it with bowls of shredded cheese and sour cream, for us to be able to add what we like.  I also made cornbread, in a cast iron skillet, of course.  A simple supper, for sure.

Then, just to celebrate Fall (my favorite season), I made an apple pie. I am not a baker by any means and, just between us, this was only the second apple pie I ever made in my life.  And it was the first time I ever made a lattice crust.  It turned out pretty well.

We had a nice evening, listening to the rain on the roof, enjoying our chili, cornbread, and apple pie with ice cream, and playing our cut-throat game (not) of Sequence.  Chance and Hobbes were even on their best behavior.

More later --


  1. Patty,
    This looks and sounds like a wonderful Fall evening with a friend, to be sure!
    Nothing like homemade chili, cornbread and apple pie.
    We usually go up into the mountains this time of the year and get apples. I make applesauce and apple pies. Have a great FAll!

  2. Thanks, Eileen. Hope y'all get to go on your trip to the mountains. Nothing like the mountains in fall...
