Weekly Menu - The One with Halloween

What a great week we had last week for Josh's birthday.  My favorite part was the simple cooking and then well, not cooking! HA!  Josh loved getting his favorite foods too!  This week we get blessed with the kids going to their Grandma's and some Halloween fun!

Saturday - There are two options for this day - either, I'm going scrapbooking all day and Darryl is staying home for the day.  OR, Darryl will work which means I will get up early and drive him to work, come home and go back to bed (HA!) and then go scrapbooking all day.  When he is done working, I will pack up and go pick him up and we'll go to dinner somewhere.  Either way, I'm not cooking!

Sunday - No Kids=No cooking.  I'm thinking we'll just grab some KFC after church so we can go home and watch football. 

Monday - No Kids = No Cooking :-) I'm thinking we may go to Big Boy for their fabulous fish dinner or to Applebees.  Something close and fairly inexpensive.

Tuesday - My kids come home today so it is back to cooking :-)  I'm not sure what time they are coming home so I think I'm going to take the easy way out and just plan hot dogs and chips. 

Wednesday - Breakfast for dinner is an easy thing to do on AWANA nights.  Pancakes, Sausage and fruit is always a great plan!

Thursday - Beef Tips and Noodles,  Rolls, and Green Beans

Friday - My brother and sister-in-law are coming to our house for Halloween.  My brother loves my boys and loves being able to do stuff with them while he is home on furlough.  He has been waiting for two years to be able to go trick-or-treating with them so it should be fun!  I think I'll do Slow Cooker Honey Ginger Pork , with Baked brown Rice, Ken's Fruit Salad. and Marinated Veggie Salad  It is all stuff I can make earlier in the day and then serve just before we head out to get all the candy! 

It is really difficult to believe that it is the end of October and we are entering into the Holiday Season - Thanksgiving and Christmas.  It is really my favorite time of year and I try each year to make it fun, festive, and full of fun traditions for our family!
