Creamy White Chicken Chili is just what I needed this weekend! We received our first snow two weeks ago and it caught everyone off guard. We still had most of our apples on the tree and because the temperatures dropped so low, we lost the rest of the crop. Cold weather just puts me in the mood for warm, cozy food.

We were actually out of town when the snow hit. We had traveled to watch one of our boys play in the state soccer tournament for high school. While they didn’t win, they played well and had lots of fun. We didn’t have snow there, but their final game was played outside in 20 degree weather! Yep, it was cold.

On the way home from the tournament, we got stuck in the snow storm. The whole team, and all the parents ended upstopping for the night about three hours from our town. The traffic had slowed way down and one of the passes we had to cross was closed due to semitrucks blocking the interstate.

It all ended well and everyone made it home safely the next day, and I have to think the soccer team had fun with one more night hanging out together.
