The weather in my neck of the woods: Perfect early fall weather, I need a sweater in the mornings, but not the afternoons. I couldn't be happier. It is gorgeous out there.
Things that make me happy: Recovering from whatever this is, quiet mornings, my little family, kitty footprints on my deck.
Meal Plan for the week:
Monday: Chicken Soft Tacos
Tuesday: Potato Soup
Wednesday: Mexican Lasagna
Thursday: Beef Stew (and I'll finally share my recipe)
Friday: Breakfast for dinner
Saturday: Beef Veggie Soup
Sunday: Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti
Gabe had the genius idea of making Friday "Breakfast for Dinner" Day...the more days I have "accounted for" in my Meal Planning Notebook (yes, I have one), the better it is. We usually have some kind of pasta dish on Sundays, and soup on Saturdays. I know friends who have things like "Italian Wednesday" and "Crockpot Friday", and it's just one more little thing that helps to keep the sanity in our little house.
On my to-do list:
*Run the dishwasher
*Fold the clean laundry that's in the basket
*Clean the bathrooms
*Move my wire plant-stand inside (it's getting too cold for my plants outside at night)
*Attempt to organize the pantry (hahahahha)
New Recipe I want to try:
This Mexican Chicken Lasagna...I'm going to perfect that this week!!!
Looking forward to this week:
Helping out at the Soup Kitchen this Saturday. Last month was my first month helping, and it was a blast! I may bring Ella along this week :)
Looking around the house: I really need to move that plant stand in. My coffee table has been taken over by my various plants. Yikes.
This is Ella's "fake sister", my friend Tessa. I love that she takes time out of her day to be a friend to my Ella :)
Lesson Learned: If someone goes out of their way to tell others what a wonderful person they are, you can pretty much bet they're not wonderful at all.
On my mind: My Mom and Dad, this country, the parents of two beautiful twin girls who passed away this morning.
