I keep thinking that fall is here. .. . and then we have 75-80 degree days and it makes me a little sad. Don't get me wrong, the weather has been beautiful but the bees, wow. I've become the great bee killer - usually killing upwards of 10-15 bees a day if the patio door is open. The kids don't even like to play outside for very long because of the bees! I'm ready for a really good solid freeze so the bees will go away.
Here's our plan for this week. We are laying pretty low since my husband is still dealing with a bank injury. Ironically, October is usually one of our busy months with fall stuff, Halloween, a birthday and just all around fun stuff. So far, we aren't doing much of anything!!!
Friday - Taco's! It has a been a few weeks since we've had our normal Friday night tacos. Tonight will be traditional :-) I'll just add some chips and Salsa to go along with it.
Saturday - Italian Burgers and Salad - Saw this in an episode of Pioneer Woman and it looked good!
Sunday - We'll have Sloppy Joes after church since I can have it all made before hand and then I'm going to do a pot of Chicken and Dumplings for dinner.
Monday - Monday is Soup day! I'll turn left over chicken and dumplings (minus the dumplings) into Chicken Noodle Soup. This is THEE best way to make chicken noodle soup!
Tuesday - Thanks to a friend of mine who had about 5 crock pots and heard that mine had died and I had yet to replace it, I now have a crock pot :-) So we will have Balsamic Pork Loin in the Crock pot, Mac and Cheese, roasted veggies and some rolls.
Wednesday -It's breakfast for dinner! Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, fried potatoes and Fruit! Yum :-)
Thursday - We'll end the week with an old favorite, Beef Strogenoff over noodles with Italian bread.
What am I baking this week? Well, it is fall so I'm thinking maybe an apple crisp and/or a pumpkin pie. Cookies will be the "break and bake" since they are on sale this week :-)
