Weekly Menu 10/31-11/6

Happy “late” Halloween everyone! How was it for you all? We had a fantastic time. I ended up taking my two girls out with their best friends around our neighborhood, and later Josh’s family joined us. This was our first year trick or treating in our new neighborhood and boy did we pick the spot! A very generous and excited neighborhood. Lot’s of people decorated, lot’s of great candy, and the best part aside from our streets lined with cars was that the neighbors really seemed to enjoy passing out candy :)

Aside from Halloween being this week, we also started our 2nd grade homeschooling year. Normally, we start in October, but with the trips we had planned, we ended up having to push back our year to this week.  We school Tuesdays-Fridays, taking Mondays and all normal school holidays off.  So far, it’s going very well, though we are only 2 days into it. The wonderful thing is Josh has really asserted himself into teaching Gracie her math class this year in the mornings before he leaves for work. Today she finished her math very quickly so they were able to knock out another book this morning, which made my day considerably easier since on Wednesdays I babysit one of my nieces for the day.

So my week has been quite the busy one so far. Please forgive that this post is late, but I promise, we have stuck to our menu beautifully and I foresee the rest of the week to go just as smoothly :)

Halloween Tradition of Chili!
This year I made a Crockpot Pumpkin Turkey Chili
Navy Bean Soup with toast
Pan-fried Swai, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and a garden salad

Crockpot Cranberry Chicken, Rice, and veggies

Homemade Pizza 

Chicken Cordon Bleu with steamed broccoli

Roast Beef and Slaw Panini– This meal is catering to my husband. I’m not a bit roast beef person, but it was on sale and he likes it :)

I was going to make cookies this week for Josh’s lunches, but the girls are keeping my hubby stocked in Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Butterfingers, so I’ll make the cookies next week :)
