DTD September 2011

It is officialy fall and the weather is finally getting cooler. What a perfect month for "Crock Pot Meals".

The DTDs met last night for our monthly supper club. Wondering what we made?

September Appetizers:
Apple Dumplings

September Meals:
Cheesy Diva: Chili and Cheese on Rice
Saucy Diva: Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
Dessert Diva: Polynesia Roast Beef
Gourmet Diva: Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff over egg noodles

We always start our evening with some appetizers and conversation.
Mmmmm...spinach dip, pita bread and Mantraps! Instead of our normal wine, we opted for some sparkling apple cider since Cheesy Diva Jr. is due in less than 2 months!

Then after at least an hour of catching up with the ladies we devoured some Pioneer Woman Apple Dumplings. (We will share this recipe with you later this week, but you can always find it on PW's amazing site!)

Finally we decided we should probably start making our meals...
Here are all of the ingredients for Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff.

A fully assembled bag of Chicken and Sausage Gumbo...all ready to throw in a crock pot!

Here's an action shot...putting together all the ingredients for Chili and Cheese on Rice

Here is the Polynesian Roast Beef station. (and a belly shot of Baby Diva to Be...aww!)

It was great month of meals! We're meeting in two weeks for October's DTD gathering. The theme? Cheesy Diva's choice! Since Cheesy Diva is going to have her hands full this November with Baby Diva we decided we needed to stock her freezer with some of her favorite Dinnertime Diva meals. She's going to look back at past recipes and decide which were her favorites from each Diva. We are waiting in anxious anticipation to see what she picks. She'll post a sneek peek on this blog once she figures out her requests! If you are new to our site this will be a great way for you to try out some of our all time favorite Diva meals!

In the next few days we will be posting all of the recipes from this month. Just click on the September 2011 tab on the right of the page and you will find the recipes as they are added.

Until next dinner....
