Fall Stuffed Chicken

So, last night I tweeted about our yummy Fall Sunday dinner & had many of you drooling & requesting the recipe.  SO, here it is!  I have to give credit to my mom.  This is actually her recipe.  She tweaked it a bit from a recipe she had found in a magazine.   Bon appetit!

Fall Stuffed Chicken:
5 Large chicken breasts

1 apple chopped very fine

1/3 cup chopped almonds

1/4 cup bleu cheese

salt & pepper

Directions:
In a mixing bowl, mix together chopped apple, chopped almonds & bleu cheese.   Slit the sides of the chicken breast to create a pocket to stuff.  Insert stuffing mixture into pocket & top chicken breast with a spoonful as well.  Add salt & pepper to taste.  Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

New Fabrics for Fall

The temperature is dropping & the kiddos are back in school.  Before you know it, you’ll be sitting in front of your fireplace with a nice cup of hot cocoa.  Fall is here!  I love fall and everything that represents it.  This time of year, I use a home fragrance around my house called Harvest Spice.  It’s a plug in that I fell in love with the year my daughter was born & I’ve used it ever fall ever since.

Fall colors are warm, inviting & cozy.  Schumacher’s line of fall fabrics for 2009 vividly represent the best of fall.  From intricate paisleys to lush palampores (a tree of life design) the collection offers something for everyone.  Here’s a sneak peek at some of my favs.

Love this bright bold paisley.  I’m also a fan of red & gold together.  Reds & golds seem to offer a timeless tradition for color palettes.  The design of this paisley is based off of an antique pattern.  Bravo Schumacher!  Love it!

I love the muted colors used in this version of the Paisley pattern.  Very soft & subtle.  It doesn’t scream paisley at you.  This fabric would make fabulous draperies or bedding!

I could see this on a pair of carved wood chairs with a rich brown finish or on pillows for a sofa for an added pop of color.
