Slice up the chicken breast thin and into bite size pieces
Gather spices, salt and pepper.
Grate the Cheese
Boil the noodles

*Serve with bread of your choice
*Serve with a salad

Life in An Old Farmhouse

Did you ever lived in a farmhouse with metal cabinet?
I love the mixed matched dishes and the apron.

When farmers wives used to dress up to care for the home, always looking presentable.

My mom always dressed nice when I was a child, I remembered one of her dresses
that she wore, it was a white printed cotton dresses that button down
the front and tied at the waist.

  Does anyone remember when a table was used instead of an island?
There was no such thing as a island when I was a child.

Cotton dresses ~ always

Do you remember milk been delivered by a milkman?

 A time when butter
would sit out all day on the table.

What a bountiful pantry! Crocks filled with harvest and apples picked and stored in baskets.
I just love this pantry and all its harvest.

Simply At Home

 Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

I have enjoyed my time at home this week, mostly staying in the kitchen baking up these lovely pies.
I don't have cutters, I just used a knife to make these works!

 These lovely pies are gifts to a couple of families that we appreciate and we are so blessed they are in our lives.  I did bake another pie for my family ~ serving my best to them as well.

Our weather has been so nice with warm sunny days and cool nights.  We are trying to enjoy each day before the weather turns off cold. While the pies are baking I like to step out onto the front porch and soak in the warmth of the sun....I will miss my front porch visits this winter

Happiness is still homemade in our farmhouse...

Enjoy your day and spend time with your precious family.

Hello October

"I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
~Anne of Green Gables, 1908

October has been a month of baking in our farmhouse. We have enjoyed trying some new recipes and some old ones.  This is a pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting.

Fresh Baked Apple Pie

Bushels of apples await me in harvest baskets. Oh, how I love this time of the year!
This week we will be canning some apple sauce, apple butter, and apples for homemade pies.
I love to can apples because of its wonderful smell while they are simmering on the stove.

Cozy Fall!

Banana Nut Bread 

 These banana breads are tucked away 
in the freezer--a treat for us on a cold winter day with a hot cup of coffee.

The hens are laying well this month, and I am sure they will start to slow down 
on their laying before too long.

Our garden is still putting out some tomatoes. I have been picking them and placing them in the
hot greenhouse to ripen.    So thankful that we are still getting some tomatoes.

The leaves in our area are just now starting to turn. I am looking forward to the changing of the leaves. God's grand finale before the gray days of winter.

Praying our lives will slow down to enjoy this beautiful season.

The girls and I have been collecting seeds from the garden and from zinnias. I remember my
grandmother collecting seeds from her garden for the coming spring.  

May your fall be cozy!

Life in A Old Farmhouse

Have you ever lived in a old farmhouse?  Have you ever wanted too?  Or maybe you still do.

A farmhouse must have a cast iron bed. 

Mason jars of sweet tea.

cotton dresses

Farmhouse morning...can't you smell the coffee perking.

Farmhouse breakfast

Pies cooling in the farmhouse window.

I hope you have enjoyed life in the old farmhouse.
It brings back many memories for me.

Life In A Old Farmhouse

Farmhouse kitchen

Farmhouse dishes are always mismatched.

Farmers wife...notice the sweet note in her pocket.

 Dried flowers and berries

The old black phone on the wall with the finger dial.
We had one like this when I was a child. Does 
anyone remember the party lines?

Wake me up at daybreak...


Sweet memories of an old farmhouse.

From credit of all these 
wonderful photo's 

From time to time I will make a post on "Life in a old farmhouse"
I hope you enjoy them.
