I missed you guys this weekend. Sorry I am so late posting. We had a fall festival and fresh food drive at our chiropractic office this weekend. It went well and we collected fresh food for our local food bank. That brought be a lot of joy because, as you know, fresh food is our passion! If you want to check out the food bank it is Sister Carmen Food Bank in Lafayette, CO.
I have been waiting to share this recipe with you for months. It is from Multiply Delicious and is geniously delicious. I did of course adapt the recipe just a tiny bit but MDelicious is who hit the nail on the head. These are also a great way to sneak in vegetables to little ones... just tell them it is a hamburger:) Warning: this recipe has two steps and requires you let the chicken mixture sit overnight. So read the directions carefully. These must go on your menu this week!
Also, I have been apple picking so stay tuned for recipes using them including homemade cinnamon applesauce that I could eat a whole gallon of!
