Chicken Stew

Well it's that time of year again, at least here in the South, when the chicken stews start. It HAS to be cold outside for starters. These are the requirements: Giant pot of chicken stew, boxes of crackers, marshmallows to roast and a table big enough outside to seat everyone! We had ours outside at Mama's house recently. She fixed the stew and we provided the crackers and marshmallows. We had so much fun! My son and niece had a marshmallow toss. Evidently, they go further when they are on fire!! Does anyone else have chicken stews? For more outdoor pics, please visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer.

Outdoor Wednesday - Anniversary Trip

We recently had our 26th wedding anniversary and took a trip to the mountains. We went to Buck Mountain, which is near Boone, NC. The weather was absolutely beautiful and so was the cabin that we stayed in. We rode 4 wheelers and had a picnic lunch beside a pond. We also found a waterfall that was really beautiful. Later that afternoon, we drove on into Boone and Blowing Rock and shopped and ate supper. We had so much fun that weekend! We are definitely going back!!

I've just gotten slack, plus as it's gotten colder and the days are getting shorter, I've been laying around eating this:
