October 12th - October 17th

ahhhhhh..... Fall 

Scroll down for my weekly menu and shopping list

I was having a rough couple of days and needed a distraction...

So I dragged out my Fall decorations....

and got to work... 

I am also tired of the heat
so I thought I could pretend the weather was getting cooler...
although the unbearable heat and humidity the day I decided to do this made it difficult to pretend

this was a great distraction! It made me feel so much better...and now the weather really is starting to show signs of getting cooler! YAY!

My little buddy wasn't feeling well, so he had to go to the doctor :(.  He has antibiotics for an infection and is going back for a recheck in a couple weeks

Thursday - Steak and Salad
Sunday - Roasted Chicken (prep day before and refrigerate) with Cauliflower Mash, and Fresh steamed green beans

  1. I do believe I feel a little fall in the air! I, myself, will be floating in the pool since it is NOT raining!

    1. I hope you were able to get lots of pool time in before the rain. I am tired of the rain! I was pulling out of the driveway today and thinking "Finally, we are drying out!" and then it rained...again... (sigh)
