Fall Picnic


A friend from church came over the other day for lunch and we had a lovely picnic on the porch! It was a beautiful day to be outside (maybe a little warm for soup still!) and Emily LOVED getting to eat her lunch outside!


I was inspired by Mrs. Wilt to make this variation on her popcorn and tealight jar - which we used on the table. I have one on the kitchen window sill and another on the porch to light in the evenings. After all, we all remember how much I love canning jars!


For lunch we had: baked potato soup, leaf shaped sandwiches, and salad with apples and walnuts. It was a delicious combination! You can freeze the scraps from the bread and cheese cut-outs and make a breakfast sausage and egg casserole to use them up!

Thanks for your comments on my blog. When I woke up this morning and looked back on yesterday it made me feel a little silly. I know I shouldn't let other people's not nice attitudes bother me. All I need to worry about is making sure I am nice.

I think I will try the baked potatoe soup. Will loves potatoes and especially bacon. I lov eyour front porch. I wish I had one.

Blessings to my sister in Christ!
