Honey Chipotle Chicken Strips - delicious sweet and spicy sauce on crispy chicken tenders!

This is my favorite time of year.

Y’all already know that though. Football season is what I live for. I love nothing more than staying on the couch all Saturday watching football, only getting up to make some yummy snacks for everyone.

Pumpkin Pie Fudge! The taste of pumpkin pie in an easy to make candy. This fudge is perfect for gifting!

This post originally published on November 27, 2008. Wait. Have I really been blogging that long?! Anyway, I’ve updated the photos, the words, everything. Enjoy! 

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous. Didn’t leave my house at all.

Okay, well, I ended up at In-n-Out once but besides that, I only left for dog walks.

I spent Saturday binging on crime documentaries. You guys. Have you seen There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane? It’s a must watch but be warned: I sobbed through the last 20 minutes.

I also watched Who Took Johnny, Audrie and Daisy (another must watch – especially if you have teens), and I started The Staircase. If you’re also into these sorts of documentaries, please leave me suggestions! I’m obsessed right now.

Slow Cooker Pork and Butternut Squash Stew - a bowl of comfort! Quickly brown the pork and then toss everything in the slow cooker!

Okay guys, real talk.

I broke the driver’s side window of my car.

“How’d you manage that one, Amanda?”

Well, it’s a Wrangler so the windows unzip and the zipper broke.

Okay, fine, I broke both zippers. Which is okay most of the time since I normally have at least the back windows off anyway. But y’all, it’s cold in the mornings and at night in central Texas now. I was shivering on my way back from Austin last week.

An hour and a half at 75 MPH with the window down at 10 pm?

It was cold.

Mummy Oreo Truffles - use Pumpkin Spice Oreos to make the cutest Halloween treat!

Heeeeey guys! Happy Wednesday!

Can you believe how close we are to Halloween? I haven’t even put out decorations.

Well.

I got them out. And put them all on a table in my living room. Weeks ago.

And they are still on that table.

I haven’t even switched my Pyrex wall to fall colors and you know that is the highlight of every season for me!

Life has just been so crazy lately! Maybe I’ll have sometime this weekend to get it sorted out. Or maybe I should just decorate for Christmas because who know when I’ll have time for that!
