Three Bean Chili_8 on Whisk Together

Slow Cooker Three Bean Chili

The snow and football mean chili season.  We often used deer meat and/or ground beef in our chili.  I am including this with a picture of my dad.  He died from a heart attack last Saturday after getting his deer.  Daddy raised five girls (yes, five), worked for Schnucks Supermarkets for over 43 years and […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal_2

Creamy Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

I was too lazy to look up the recipe for my pumpkin oatmeal last week.  The oats were reduced and the milk increased… and tastes BETTER than the original.  Same flavor profile, but creamier!  A healthy, wholesome fall breakfast – and remember you bake it and freeze it.  Or, you can mix it all together […]

I haven’t started it yet, but I did pick up Marina Keegan’s book The Opposite of Loneliness during our Fall Festival at the […]
