Heart Warming Wednesday

Hello again. It's Wednesday and that means that it's time again for the 2nd Heart Warming Wednesday Post! Today I'm doing a tablescape for you. I love setting a beautiful table! If you have a fall tablescape or a fall posting you would like to link up be sure to join in on Heart Warming Wednesday and make sure you link back to my blog.

This is my fall table! And some of my dining room decorated for fall. I did pull some decor from elsewhere to really vamp up my look! I love decorating and have had so much fun doing that this fall! You may pin these photos to Pinterest but please make sure it links back to my blog. Thanks! 

 Some upclose shots of the place setting.
Another of the place settings. The dishes were given to me in 2005 in N.C. from a church friend, when I had moved into my first place of my own. I didn't have any of my own dishes and things since everything I owned for a home was in Ohio. She graciously gave me this set of dishes and few pans which really helped me! 
 Some more shots of the table. This is the first time I've lit the taper candles.

Here's one of the center piece! I bought the wire pumpkin from Partylite in 2009. I love it! 

The glasses with the leaves on them I purchased at our local Dollar Tree. I couldn't pass them up! 
That's my Heart Warming Wednesday Photo shoot for you. I hope you enjoyed it, and please leave me a comment I love getting them.

Heart Warming Wednesdays

I'm starting something new here on the blog and that's Heart Warming Wednesdays. Every Wednesday I plan to have something that's cozy on the blog whether that be a heartwarming meal or tablescape. Please plan to join me! I'm going to try and add the linky capability to the blog soon so if you have something heart warming on a Wednesday you would like to share you can! Please spread the word!

There's nothing like a heartwarming soup on a chilly fall night! I had been thinking about broccoli cheese soup all day, thinking it sounded wonderful! However, I know that my husband has to have some meat with his meals and can't just eat plain soup with just cheese and broccoli. So I created this soup as I went along.

Ab's Cheesy Broccoli, Chicken Soup

2 Cans Cheddar Cheese Soup
2 Cans Milk + some (to your liking)
2-3 Chicken Breasts (I used several Chicken tenders probably 8 or 9)
1 bag Frozen Broccoli
Shredded Cheese (I used Colby Jack)
Poultry Seasoning
Seasoning Salt
Instant Mashed Potato Flakes
1.) Fry chicken in skillet till browned, then cut into cubes and set aside.
2.) Mix together cheese soup and 2 cans of milk with a whisk. Pour into large dutch oven pot and add more milk to get the correct consistency and amount that you want, then add the bag of frozen broccoli.
3.) Heat till warm and add chicken and shredded cheese and seasonings and then heat till through adding Potato flakes during this last step.
4.) Serve hot with crackers, and Garlic Cheese Biscuits! YUMMY!

Just something quick and Easy.
