As you might remember from last year, Steven and I like to do a little fall-themed date.
Last night was our little date night, complete with good food (recipes below!), cider, and pumpkin carving. My little downtown apartment smelled so wonderfully! I really like having themed dates, gives something new/different to a regular night.
I’m really proud of our pumpkins! I did the Timbers logo, while Steven made a dachshund. I forget how stressful craving pumpkins is. Intense concentration was needed (and I bet the ciders didn’t help). And no… we didn’t mean to match with our v-necks…
Aunt Donna’s Crockpot Chicken & Dumplings
3 frozen chicken breasts
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans chicken broth
1 diced onion
1 diced carrot
1 diced celery
1 can peas
salt and pepper
1 can biscuits
Put everything but the biscuits in the crockpot. Cook on low for 8-9 hours
Cut the biscuits and throw them in 1-2 hours before you eat.
I also made a quick batch of the easiest cookies ever. It’s only two ingredients but they are delicious and perfect for fall. If you love pumpkin flavor, you will love these!
Two Ingredient Pumpkin cookies
1 box Spice Cake Mix
1 15 oz. can of pumpkin
(optional) cream cheese frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine ingredients and drop batter on a greased cookie sheet
Bake 10-15 minutes
I cut each cookie in half and put some frosting to create a little sandwich! They are super delicious and can keep in a air-tight container for a couple days!
And ta-da! Our little fall date on a rainy Thursday night in Portland.
