This week’s Homekeeper’s Journal is all about Nesting ….
Let’s define our terms...
Nest - a snug retreat or refuge; resting place; home
Nesting - to build or have a nest
Its time to start nesting and get my home cozy and comfortable for the cooler days ahead. I want to create a retreat from the world, a resting place, home.Get your thinking caps on and lets talk about how we can arrange, order, decorate and change our homes so that they are a warm wonderful retreat for our families this Autumn and Winter.
I could remodel and have a place for them to sit and sip a cup of tea and fellowship
My best tip for making a home seem more welcoming …..candles, quilts and soft musicTo give the feeling of warmth in my home I often ….. light candles.I love the smell of fall candles and I love to decorate with pumpkins and leaves
In the cooler months, it is essential for me to ….have hot apple cider and hot chocolate and hot tea-my family loves hot drinks when they come in from the cold
Some favorite Autumn/Winter recipes are …..Turkey chili with a big pan of cornbread and shredded cheese---We use turkey because my grandson has PKU and cannot have the beef. He cannot have the cheese either but we make the cornbread with his milk so he can have some-he calls it "cake".
My chili is so easy---
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
1 envelope chili seasoning mix
1/2 cup water
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet. Cook ground turkey over medium heat until it is no longer pink. Stir in chili seasoning mix and water. Then I add remaining ingredients, using just enough to make the chili the thick or thinness I want. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve with cornbread and shredded cheese.
PS-You can add beans but my family likes it without beans
