Picture my Week

We had a very full week, but somehow that didn't translate into a lot of pictures. I was actually surprised when I discovered how few I took.

Somehow even amidst the overly packed days we had we always managed to make time to cook a decent meal every evening. We enjoy the family time spent around the table with good food and even better fellowship. This week's menu included one of our all time favorite meals.

While we lived in Missouri we used to visit this little Mexican restaurant that we really loved. We haven't found anything like it where we live now, so I set to recreating what used to be my favorite meal there. Chicken enchiladas in a white queso sauce, fried rice, and salad with slightly chunky guacamole.

 
Another evening I had made Chicken n Dumplings. After I had rolled out the dough for the dumplings, Buddy enjoyed driving one of his little cars through the left over flour.
 
 
Rosebud has been bitten by the fall baking bug, and we've been enjoying sampling all her new creations.
 
These apple cider cupcakes were fabulous!

  1. That Mexican food looks so yummy as do the apple cider muffins. I recently made banana apple oatmeal muffins which turned out very good. Fun time for Buddy with his cars in the dough. So cute!

  5. The enchilada's look so good and how lucky you are to have Rosebud baking for you. Yum! I never thought of letting our boys use the flour for tracks. I wish I would have as I'm sure it's lots of fun!

    1. Rosebud loves baking so much that I hardly get the chance to bake anything.

      Buddy thought he had it made to be able to drive his car in the flour. :)

  7. I think I remember you lived somewhere in southern Missouri? I am a Missouri girl (now living in Arkansas, and it's not the same). Do you mind telling me the city and name of the restaurant?

  8. I was going to ask the same question Carrie asked! I live in SW MO and there are quite a few Amish and Mennonite communities in my surrounding areas. I would love to know the name of the Mexican restaurant and which town. Would you be willing to share that info, Maryann?
