October Coffee

Tonight's coffee was held at A Pigment of Your Imagination.   We all choose a piece of pottery to paint.  It was so much fun to see all of the creative ideas; kudos to the girls who hosted the event.

There was lots to chat about tonight, as today we found out where we will all be going (or staying).  Rachel and I are staying, along with some other sweet ladies.


We're putting our heads together to plan next month's coffee.  This month's activity will be hard to beat.

Stay tuned to see what our pottery looks like after the firing process.

And if pottery ain't your thang,
never fear!
In Lawton, 
quality questionable entertainment

Pioneer Woman Favorites

This past week was busy.  We weren't home Monday evening, Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening, or Thursday evening.  So last night, we were excited to stay home.  And I was excited to finally cook our own dinner. 

I made Cajun Chicken Pasta, from The Pioneer Woman Cooks website.  Dinner was served at 8:30, but it was really good--worth the wait.  I made this Cajun Spice Mix, and I used whole wheat fettuccine--which I'm positive negated the unhealthiness of the heavy whipping cream.  I do think that next time I will use less chicken and add some Polish sausage and shrimp.  I also think that this recipe tied with Fancy Macaroni for my all-time favorite PW recipe....another recipe that I feel is healthy because I use whole wheat macaroni.  I've made Fancy Macaroni four times, and, one time, I forgot the goat cheese.  We love goat cheese, but we actually liked the dish better without it.

I would love to know if you've tried any PW recipes, and if so, which ones are your favorites.  There isn't enough butter in Comanche County for me to try them all myself.
