Sunday dinner

We had a family-go-to favorite today. It is so easy and one of those crock pot meals that brings this unexpected happy state, when in the middle of the day, you realize that dinner is prepared! I love crock-pot meals.
Lemon Pepper Chicken
1 pkg frozen chicken breast tenders
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
Lemon pepper
Place frozen chicken tenders in your crock pot and sprinkle with Lemon Pepper. 
We love Lemon Pepper so I may do a little more than sprinkle
In a separate bowl combine
cream of chicken soup and 
sour cream.
Once again add Lemon Pepper
I usually let the chicken cook for a few hours and then I add the cream mixture.
Then walk away... and upon your return you have dinner.
I always serve with mashed potatoes because this also provides the yummiest sauce for your potatoes!

Now for dessert!
This whole day was just full of autumn comfort!

Apple Cake with Vanilla Cream Sauce
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
4 apples, peeled and diced small
1 cup nuts (optional)
my family is not a big fan of nuts so I usually leave them out
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients together
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes
Keep your eye on your cake, and once toothpick comes out clean, it is done!

Vanilla Cream Sauce
Oh my!
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup evaporated milk
Combine in a saucepan on the stove
Bring to a boil and stir constantly for a couple of minutes

Prepare your whipped cream and then...

Cake...Sauce...Whipped Cream... Deliciousness!!!
