Keeping up with The Maples

Taking a Break from the Norm

Tuesday night Randy and I decided not to stay home and do chores. We decided to enjoy this beautiful fall-like weather we have been having here lately! I know! We are such rebels! 😉 We took Tesla for a short hike up Bearwallow Mountain. It is about a 2 minute drive from our house, basically our back yard, with a gorgeous view.

The only little downfall about the summit is that we have to share it with cows, therefore there are cow-patties everywhere! So as I was taking this shot I stepped and slid in a cow-patty. Lovely!

Happy Tesla!

When we got home we made grilled caprese chicken, from Iowa Girl Eats. It has become one of our favorites! And to make it even better, it is super easy and quick. Perfect for a weekday dinner! We usually make a little bit more and eat on it for about a week. We love it that much!



I hope everyone’s week has been great and that you have been enjoying this excellent weather! Happy Friday!
