Cozy, comfy fall food!

What a fantastic week for the weather!!! It's in the upper 60's in the mornings and only in the 80's during the day!! FALL has arrived! I feel so blessed to live in a part of the country where the weather has 4 distinct seasons and that next to spring, autumn is one of the best!  My girls have been an inspiration in my menu this week. Below are some pictures of Kait feeding Kinley some butternut squash, one of the only jar baby foods we have found that she will not spit back out! So I got to thinking, butternut squash, I've never tried to make anything with that!  Then what'd ya know, I turn on Food Network and one of their very talented hosts was making a butternut squash soup! The other inspiration I have is of course my sweet hubby who has recently begun his student teaching.  He has requested salad, salad, salad for lunches! Who knew he was so health conscience?! I have respected his reqest and gone on a quest for a variety of salads to keep it interesting and healthy.  As I browsed the selection of various fruits and veggies in the supermarket I ran across brussel sprouts and tomatillos, two more foods I've never cooked with, so you'll be seeing them on the menu for MPM on Orgjunkie!!! as well! I hope you all have a blessed and cozy fall week! 


Sunday - Taco Soup dressed with chips, sour cream and hot sauce
Monday - Breakfast quiche (recipe below) and blueberry muffins
Tuesday - Easy chicken sandwiches with all the trimmings and sweet potato fries

Happy to be blogging!

Better late than never, right???

This week is going to be crazy!  In fact it's already after 10 on Monday night and I'm just now getting my menu plan up and going!!! I will have my nornal busy schedule added to 2 doctor appointments for my girls.  In addition to the busy me, I have an unusually busy hubby to contend with (unusually busy = unusually crabby at times).  I need lots of prayers this week. 

So on to the menu plan!

Sunday - Country style BBQ beef ribs, potato salad, cole slaw, corn on the cob

Monday - Pizza!

Tuesday - soup and sandwiches

Wednesday - some kind of chicken?

Thursday - breakfast quiche and fresh fruit

Friday - sloppy joes, carrots, and green beans

During my prayer time this morning I feel that God spoke words of strength and comfort to my soul, I was reminded that He is in control and will more than meet all of my and my families needs.  Make some time to spend time with your Maker and allow Him to walk beside you, you'll be glad you did!!  I hope you all have a very blessed week!
