Fall Fun

Posted by Felicia on 12:06 PM in
It finally feels like Fall. I shook off the weariness of my last post and headed to Tate Farms for some fall fun. It's a real working farm and every year they open for six weeks and have things like a petting zoo with goats, pigs, bunnies, and puppies. The puppies were an added feature this year. They feature a hay maze, a barn for kids to jump around in and various other kid-friendly things.

This is a new addition too. I had to pry the boy away from this so we could actually do something else.

The corn cribs are so fun. Another activity he didn't want to leave. But I couldn't blame him. We all jumped in.

After that we got on the hay wagon and the tractor took us out to the fields to pick our own pumpkins. By far the cheapest pumpkins around. As many as you want, and only .40 cents a lb. We picked 2 pumpkins and only paid $5.00. Woohooo! And its just down right fun to take a hay ride and pick pumpkins off the vine.

The pick of the patch!

Also....just wanted to share a quick and easy soup recipe considering it's getting all chilly like in places. This soup takes 30 min. I swear it. EASY!

Chicken Salsa Soup

2 chicken breasts, cooked, and cubed
2 cups chicken broth
1 16 oz. jar of your favorite salsa-mild, medium, or hot. Your choice!
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can of corn
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
Tortilla chips

Directions: Over medium heat, place the chicken broth, salsa, chicken, corn, and black beans in a 2 qt. saucepan. Cover and simmer for 2o min. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with cheese and serve with tortilla chips. YUM!



it looks like you guys had a blast! pumpkin patches are always so much fun.

It was really fun;something I look forward to every year.

Aw, how fun! I want to pick pumpkins off the vine!

Now that's a pumpkin patch!
