The weather is feeling rather fall-ish around here. It’s a gloomy day today, but the temperatures are really nice. I’ve pulled out my trusty fleece vests, happy to snuggle up in them again for a few months.
And that means hearty soups and stews for dinners – comfort food at it’s best. I am so happy. Love cooking that stuff – love eating it even more!
Last week, the girls’ virus derailed my dinner plans for a few days. Pretty much all they wanted to eat those few days were bagels and ginger ale. So, I have a few things that I’m carrying over from last week to this week.
I think I may have the virus myself, so haven’t really been feeling up to cooking much – so I’ll be focusing on simple things (read crock pot friendly) and comfort food favorites.
|Monday||Shredded Beef Burritos||Leftover Baked ravioli from last week (recipe coming soon)|
|Tuesday||Cheesy Chicken Pasta (requested by kids)|
|Wednesday||Chicken Fried Rice (carried over from last week)||leftover chicken pasta|
|Thursday||Cheesy breadsticks w/ marinara sauce||sub sandwiches|
|Friday||Dinner out – Friday night Mexican||cheesy breadsticks with a salad|
I’m also craving some chicken tortilla soup but won’t be making that until my tummy feels a little better. Right now, the only thing that tastes good to me are saltine crackers and ginger ale. Ugh.
Hope you all have a great week!!

Stopping by for a blog visit from Organizing Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today!
Everything for this week’s menu plan sounds so wonderful.
I love this time of year when the temps have cooled down to something liveable in Las Vegas!
When I opened our coat closet I didn’t get hit with a blast of heat today. Now that’s much better.
I’ll be on the lookout for soup recipes to add to my recipe file box
Thanks so much for stopping by!
