Sunday Lunch

Today's after-church main dish was our favorite old stand by; Slow Cooker Chili.  I cooked it up in my cast iron Dutch oven today instead of the Crock pot.  The recipe can be found in this post.

Then for dessert I made my sweeties' favorite. Pecan pie.  Every southern cook needs a fail-proof pecan pie recipe and I had quite a few failures before trying the one on the back of the Golden Eagle Syrup label.

Neil pronounced the first trial run with this recipe PERFECT!  So I've never used any other recipe since. Why mess with the best?  

Now I'm going out to enjoy this perfect 53 degree sunny Sunday afternoon.  Maybe it will melt the rest of our week-old snow.  May your day be blessed!


  1. The pie looks so good! I'm going to have to make one soo, thanks for sharing

  2. You had me at the chili and again at the Pecan Pie! Yum!


  3. Thanks, Sherry, for the recipes. I've saved the chilli and will prolly use it this week.

  4. Mmmmm! Wish I could come for leftovers! Your pie is pretty as can be! Thanks for the recipes! Have a wonderful weekend! Twyla

  5. I love using our slow cooker! It makes life so much easier. And that pie looks delish! Yum!

  6. I just want to say . . . I miss seeing your new post every other day. Wow girlie it has been a whole week almost. Also I saw a little pink turtle that looked like ti belonged at your house. Skipped on it though thinking i tmight be clutter. Love ya!
