White Chicken Chili

If you missed my Instagram post this week I shared that I’m taking on a new adventure and teaching dance for the kids in our homeschool co-op.  While I’m a little scared at all of the details required for teaching dance, my heart sings to be able to step back out on the floor of the…

BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP WITH SAUSAGE AND SPINACH

Whew!  These past few weeks have been a blur.  And it’s not even Christmas yet.  How do people cope with this stress?  Starbucks usually works, along with pumpkin-anything on my plate.  My husband has been busy too, securing some meat for our freezer.  He’s been on – I can’t even count how many – hunting…

The view was beautiful, the ceiling of stars were stared at in awe and the food was a nice…
