This Week's Menu... (10/1 - 10/5)


Time once again for the weekly menu! Another wonderful reason to create a weekly menu is for your sanity. It keeps you somewhat organized throughout the week! (And I need all the organization I can get!)

Even if you don't follow the menu completely, you have a great list to go by and all the ingredients needed. I usually try to center our weekly meals around chicken, ground turkey, occasionally boneless pork loin (when it's on sale), and a weekly vegetarian dinner. This week I didn't quite follow that pattern. We are going out of town next weekend, so I wanted to use as many fresh items in our fridge as possible before we head out... and I have three new recipes I am excited about trying!

Make sure to check out Ms. GF's menu for this week! It looks delish! Also, you'll probably find more GF menus on Natalie's blog and Book of Yum.

NO... frogs are not on the menu...

This is what you take pictures of when you're not snapping shots of food and you don't have kids!
We have these little green tree frogs everywhere in our yard at night!
Michael took this photograph for his upcoming blog on backyard wildlife!

Okay, back to the menu! You could call this weeks menu a: "Comfort Food Week." Living in the south, I learned how to make a LOT of comfort foods growing up. While I didn't make all of these dishes in particular, they all seem pretty comfy to me!
