Hey, y’all! Welcome back to Sunday Supper. I sure enjoy visiting with y’all each week and hope y’all do, too! Let’s jump in…
I always love a three day weekend and a 4 day work week sure is nice, but I always feel like I’m a little behind all week. This week I updated the recipe and images for my Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Pie and shared that with y’all. That recipe just produces such a creamy and delicious pie! I hope y’all will give it a try.
I also spent some time this week creating some deliciousness for my friends over at Tony Chachere’s that you’ll hopefully get to see next week!
Over at Chinaberry, things are progressing along! While the changes aren’t as obvious as they have been with each passing week before, they’re making some great progress over there. We’ll be meeting with the cabinet craftsman next week and while we’ve had most of the stuff decided on, Heather and I spent some time this weekend making final picks.
Our builder shared a few new pictures that I wanted to share with y’all…
The weather has been a touch cooler down this way and that combined with the lower humidity has really given us a peek at fall. So that’s where my brain is when it comes to food this week…
One of my favorite cool weather recipes is my Mom’s Chicken Bog. As soon as the temperatures start falling, I start craving it. It’s basically a jazzed up version of chicken and rice, but the addition of smoked sausage just adds so much to the flavor. If you’ve never had it, I think it might be time to give this Low Country favorite a try!
I always struggle with what goes with chicken bog, but some old school Fried Cabbage sounded pretty good, so I’ve included it this week. But then, for me, fried cabbage pretty much always sounds good. 😂
Keeping with my fall theme, I’m thinking that some Apple Nut Cake might be just perfect. This is a recipe my Mom has made since I was a kid. Surprisingly, it doesn’t include any warm spices like cinnamon or nutmeg and I love it just the way it is. That said, you could add them in if you wanted to give it more of a “fall” flavor.
And to prove just how much autumn was on my brain, this Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread from A Southern Soul is what stopped me scrolling through Facebook this week. Donya really hit it out of the park with this one! All that gooey apple cinnamon filling is sandwiched between canned biscuit dough. And y’all know how much I love a canned biscuit shortcut!
Last week, I was reminded of the whole “the grass is always greener on the other side” thing. It’s something we all struggle with. But there’s something that I want you to keep in mind. The grass on the other side is probably just fertilized with manure. In fact, this week, I want you to be so focused on cutting, watering, and greening up your own grass, that you don’t even have time to see someone else’s. Every now and then, we need to do a little tending to ourselves. Maybe that’s taking time in the day for a little self care. Maybe it’s taking a short social media break and deleting the app from your phone for a few days. Maybe it’s planning a little picnic with your family.
Regardless, it’s ok to spend a little time watering your own grass every now and then. And the best part of focusing on you and your family means you don’t have time to peek over that fence.
Here’s to a great week ahead, friends! Love y’all.
