Of course, you all know what this means – the stores will be relentlessly throwing Christmas in our faces… Not that I don’t like Christmas, I love it – it’s my favorite holiday! But, it is really over-commercialized, and I think it takes all the fun out of it…if you let it, and I don’t!
BUT, there are good things about the holidays coming earlier and earlier – for one, I bought egg nog last week and it was glorious and tasty. I gave Christian a sippy cup full and the little man just inhaled it.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, haha!
This week’s menu was a dream. Sometimes, my weekly menus just come together so easily and then other weeks I cannot find any inspiration whatsoever. Not this week! I had my weekly menu for this week finished by last Tuesday!
Whenever I think of a recipe, I just try and write it down right away so I won’t forget it. I keep pads of paper in my bedroom, kitchen, and desk so I can always have a place to write down menu ideas and things I need to pick up from the store. It’s a bit OCD, but it works for me.
What helps you with menu planning? Have a great last week of October everyone!
