What a beautiful day it was. The sun was shining. The air was a little cool this morning. It was just the kind of fall day that makes me want to be busy in the kitchen. So I made my husband's favorite meal: porcupines, which are meatballs with rice cooked in a tomato sauce. I also made some chocolate chip cookies.
The porcupines are simmering in a pot and the cookies are done. While the chocolate chips are still warm and melting I am going to have a cup of tea and enjoy the new Issue of Romantic Homes. One of the articles is by one of my favorite bloggers, Kim from Daisy Cottage. What a nice relaxing way to end a lovely day.
I just finished my coffee and a brownie....but don't have that magazine. I may have to pick it up. I enjoy the Daisy Cottage blog too!
Hi Rhondi wish I could share those cookies with you they look divine!! Any chance of the recipe????????? God bless Marie xReplyDelete
Looks like a perfect day. I am enjoying our beautiful weather so much. My husband is recovering from a recent illness and it has been so nice to sit outside with him every day and enjoy the cooler days with no humidity.ReplyDelete
I love to make porcupines too. As a matter of fact I think I will have to make them again soon.
I can almost smell those cookies; I love them while they're still warm and the chips are gooey!ReplyDelete
I've been following your blog lately and it's really neat! Any chance you could post your porcupine recipe? My grammy used to make them and I haven't had them in years! Take care!
Hi...as they say...life is short, so eat dessert first!...Pass me those cookies, NOW! What a sweet post from you... ;-) BoReplyDelete
Hi Rhondi! Those cookies look great! I wish I was sitting there with you.ReplyDelete
Wasn't the weather gorgeous today?
I haven't been able to visit a lot either. Too busy lately. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Chat again soon,
I'll be right over for some of those choc chip cookies - my favorite! I'm with you I LOVE FALL i just get reenergized and want to do all sorts of things. Happy fall my friend!ReplyDelete
Those cookies look oh so yummy. The dinner sounds good too. I made Lasagne yesterday and I NEVER cook anymore. It seems more worth it on a chilly day. I hate to heat up the kitchen in summer. IReplyDelete
hope you enjoyed your magazine too.
I cant imagine a nicer day. I'm busy cooking my husband's favourite things this weekend!ReplyDelete
Hi Rhondi! Those cookies look delicious!ReplyDelete
Please pop over to my place for my 100´d post Giveaway!!

Pink Saturday is amazing, isn't it? I never would have guessed. And, to think I just started posting something pink on Saturday because I was tired on Friday nights. I needed an easy post, and posting a picture of something pink was easy.
Those cookies look wonderful and comforting.ReplyDelete
Kim at Daisy Cottage is my most favorite blog, too.
Wishing you more lovely days this weekend dear! Hugs, MaryjaneReplyDelete
Hi Rhondi ..... just wanted to stop by and see what you have been up to ...... hmmm eating cookies, I see. My kind of relaxation :-) RosieReplyDelete
There's nothing like a warm-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookie...although I'd take mine with a glass of cold milk!ReplyDelete
I haven't made those porcupines in a long time. You'll need to give us your recipe. Nothing is better than chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven. MimiReplyDelete
Sounds a wonderful day Rhondi. Who could ask for anything more . . .ReplyDelete
ahhhh, this is one of my most favorite kinds of day!! gotta go get that issue!!ReplyDelete
Oh, that does sound like a perfect day! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and saying such lovely things. Sweet of you to do that. I noticed you live in NC--I do as well. I travel in my job, though, and am on the road all fall, so your description of the day in good old NC today made me nostalgic! Sounds like a glorious NC day. Your photo is so inviting too.ReplyDelete
Hi Rhondi~the cookies look wonderful,mmmmmmmmmReplyDelete
Love that little ME teacup too. :) Have a lovely day!
PS-the scripture from your last post is one that I quote very often (to myself)for encouragement. He's so good and I am thankful for His word!
Better than anyone, I know how wonderful those cookies and a cup of tea would be. Wish I was there with you.ReplyDelete

The green berries are from a holly bush that hasn't turned red yet and the others with a touch of red are from a nandina bush.ReplyDelete
