We are getting REALLY spoiled with the warm fall weather - up in the upper 70's at the end of October - it's crazy! We keep trying to squeeze as many autumn activities as we can into every weekend. Today, it's all about the apple orchard, raking leaves and carving some ginormous pumpkins for tomorrow night. Throw in a few Halloween and birthday parties, along with watching our Cleveland Indians make a run at winning the World Series. Crazy fun around here!
But one scary thing keeps coming up....the Farmer's Almanac keeps talking about the polar vortexes and crazy-cold winter we should expect this year. As we were carving the pumpkins, they were INCHES thick - thicker than I can remember pumpkins ever being in the past...and if I recall correctly, that's supposed to mean a wicked winter!
I don't know about you, but it sure is wonderful to throw a few ingredients in a slow cooker, wait a few hours, and have a delicious dinner ready to go! Leaves more time for having fun with my family!
We all love oriental food, and Cashew Chicken is one of our favorites.
I had this put together and cooking in less than 20 minutes...not bad for a dinner that is better than any takeout you will ever have!
And it's much better when I make this at home, so that I can add extra cashews in for my crazy kids - they never get enough of these!
Perfect over white rice or brown rice, or even enjoy on top of salad greens. Stinkin' easy to make, so savory and flavorful!
BAM! Dinner is served!
Just in time...now we can cheer on our Indians! GO TRIBE!
