my Jennifers - wish you were here...

When I was in Oklahoma this summer with my sweet friend Jennifer, we went to a cute restaurant where she loves to eat... I bought the cookbook and as only two friends who love food way too much would do, we each got our copy and looked at together that night. Once before when I was at her house she fixed a wonderful Hot chicken salad out of that cookbook.

Today is was cloudy and cool here which always puts me in the mood to cook... am I the only one wishing we could put out pumpkins and such now???

So, today I got out my copy of the cookbook and picked out a couple of recipes. I made the Hot
Chicken Salad and the French Apple Pie.
I took pictures of the dishes only to find out that one of the girls had put my camera on 'video' so the pictures didn't come out where I could use them...

So Jennifer, know that my dish came out looking just like yours but somehow I think mine didn't taste as good as yours did. Of course Mike thought it wasn't really 'his kind of food'. You know if he doesn't ask for seconds its not good... I enjoyed it however and have enough for a few lunches.
As for the French Apple Pie... Jennifer, know that you need to try this... add this recipe to the few you'll fix... you won't be disappointed. It is quick and wonderful! Mike did ask for seconds on this... Wish you were here to have a piece with BlueBell on it...
So, my Jennifers... I wish you both were here!

And look who got her first big doggy hair cut...

I'm right there with you in wanting fall to be here and wanting to put pumpkins out and prepare for cooler weather.

Your recipes sound yummy - especially the part with bluebell icecream. Yum!!
