It's Fall here in Winchester!!!

You have read about my friend Heidi before, I'm sure! How she is always doing something for someone or some organization! Well, you always know when it's fall in Winchester because it's time for the Mardi Gras, which by the way Lilli has a great post on it! Back to Heidi, she is with the Women's Business League and they bake and sell cookies for scholarships! The group was having a both at the Mardi Gras and she said she had to bake 16 dozen of 3 different kinds! I said what, I love to bake let me help!!! And that's just what I did with lots of help from Lilli! We took the Snickerdoodles! Yummy!
Here's the dough and....

here they are going in the oven. Would you know I forgot to take a picture of them coming out. Anyway, trust me we baked and baked and in the end they had to have more than they took up which means they sold a lot of cookies! That scholarship fund should be pretty fat!!!

Now that it is fall I am sure I will be getting to cook lots more and bake more than usual! This is a picture of the Chili Pie topped with Hashbrowns and Cheese that I made over the weekend! Yummmmmmy!
The recipe came from .......

this book! I love to read and Debbie Macomber just happens to be one of my favorites! She has a series called Cedar Cove Series! I just finished the latest and learned that she was doing a cookbook to go with it! Of course, I had to have it! It is a wonderful cookbook! The Cauliflower and Potato Cheese soup is great, also!!!!
The leaves in our woods are turning and falling too fast these days! We have lots of rain so we haven't been able to rake them up and play in them yet!! As soon as it dries out, if it does, we will be out there raking those beautiful leaves up and jumping in!

I have to go now! Lots to do! I have to finish up my Angel Swap stuff, I am thinking about baking an apple pie with crumb topping! One of my favorites! And I have 5 pair of flannel sleep pants to make for Lilli! You know my birthday is coming really fast and as always I will be having a giveaway! I am also working on stuff for that!!!

Wherever you are whatever you are doing I hope you are having a wonderfully happy day!!!

PS.....Just an update we took Gayle back to the bone specialist and her bones are healing!!!
He was very impressed on how quickly the mega doses of Vitamin D helped her mend! We are now working on her calcium levels!!!! We don't have to go back until March!
