my dumplin'

I actually planned out our meals this week! I had kinda fallen out of the groove, but its so nice to know what I am supposed cook when I get home from work. On Monday morning I threw a roast in the crock pot and I let it cook all day. It was so nice to have dinner ready when we got home. Especially on a Monday! Tuesday I made a quiche... it took almost a half hour longer to bake than it called for. We we're getting impatient!

Wednesday night I made chicken and dumplings. They are so easy, I don't know why I don't plan for them more. I could have even saved myself some more time if I had boiled the chicken ahead of time. I should always keep some boiled chicken in the fridge, we use it for a lot of things.

Elliott was trying to help me make the dumpling dough. He stuck his head in the bisquick box...

I finally finished the furniture! It took forever and I'm not totally happy, but it looks fine for now. Maybe I can do some touching up in the future.

My parents are on their way into town. We are going to the Mizzou football game tomorrow. Hopefully the weather is as nice as it is today! I have all the windows open and a lovely cool breeze is wandering through the house. I love it, fall is almost here!
