White Chicken Chili

Last weekend white chicken chili was our Sunday Soup Supper.  This is a slow cooker recipe, so with a little planning ahead, you will have a delicious meal waiting for you when you get home at the end of the day.  The recipe starts with cooked chicken and chicken stock.  If you really plan ahead, you can make your own chicken stock, and have the chicken ready for the soup at the same time.  Click here for directions on how to make your own chicken stock.

Pumpkin Bars

Last Saturday was all about Grandma Warren.  In the morning I went to my first ever basket making class. For those of you who never had the chance to meet her, Grandma was a extraordinary lady who loved her family, was a great cook, and she made amazing baskets.  It was so special to learn the basics of her craft, and hopefully be able to continue the tradition.  On Saturday I also decided to make her famous pumpkin bars.  When my sisters and I were younger, without fail, Grandma would come to church with two pans of pumpkin bars.  And every Sunday, they would all be gone within an hour of coming home.  Back then it was all about how yummy they were, but thinking about it now, it was more about the time and thought that she put into making them for us.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as we always did.
