What's cooking this week?

Morning! I did my meal planning last night so it's one less thing on my to-do list. Basically all day today I'll be on thank you card duty. We waited for Ella's one year photos to order the thank you's for her party. It was worth the wait too, I love how they came out! Here is this weeks list of yumminess....
Tonight: Healthy Peach BBQ Pulled Chicken with roasted sweet potatoes
Tuesday: Crockpot White Chicken Chili
Wednesday: Butternut Squash Soup and steak for Hubs
Thursday: Tacos

If tonight's dinner looks a little familiar it's because I had it planned for last week and didn't quite get to it. That happens, a lot! You can only plan so much, which is why I often put something towards the end of the week that can wait a few extra days juuuuuuust in case it gets bumped further into the week. So I guess I try to plan for a potential "plan B" but that's where it ends I promise. 

We are in Fall mode over here, as much as you can possibly be when it still feels like summer outside. Confession....I LOVE Fall! I mean, I love living in Florida. The warmth, sunshine, palm trees...all of that is amazing...but I do love this time of year up north when you can feel the drastic change of season just a tiny bit more (ya think!?). Hoodie weather doesn't happen here for a while however there are some changes happening if you really pay attention. The humidity factor is becoming less and less of an issue which is major for me (and my hair)! 

We've learned to really play up everything "Halloweeny" at this time of year to help us get in the spirit. It may be cliché, but yes that includes everything "pumpkin spice"! The house is surrounded by mums, and pretty soon when I finish making breakfast it will smell like pumpkin spice goodness inside, yum! I think Ella will love these too!
This Sunday is getting off to a pretty good start! Later I plan to dig out season 8 of Friends so that I could watch the Halloween party episode. It's all part of getting into "Fall-Mode". 
Hope you all enjoy your day!

  1. I'm loving your menu plan, that chicken chili looks so good I'm going to add it to mine! And yes that's what I didn't like about living in Florida- it doesn't feel "holidayish" for a while!

  2. It's Doody Man! Tee hee! :)
