"Little House" inspired supper...

We've had storms forcasted for today since Saturday, so I planned tonight's supper menu accordingly. While flipping through my old Taste of Home magazines over the weekend, I saw "Rustic Goodness" in the "Getting in the Theme of Things" section. Several recipes were listed for a meal inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" books, so I decided to make them all! The oil lamp is lit, the clouds are rolling in, and I'm ready to get cookin'. Now, if I can just get all of my chores done this afternoon, I can knit the evening away...like Ma would do. ;-)

Have fun catchin' and killin' that chicken, you may just be too tired to knit ;)

Be assured that my potpie isn't going to be that old-fashioned! That cracks me up! :-)

What a wonderful idea and your menu sounds perfect! I hope you have time for a little knitting, too.

Thanks Kelli! I did get some knitting in. After supper, the family stayed inside to play a game and watch a movie. For a day, I felt like it was fall! ;-) haha
