Menu Plan - Oct. 25


Halloween week....! Not so exciting around here. With a pumpkin allergy, my love spent every Halloween in the emergency room -- needless to say, Halloween is not our favorite holiday. Although, this year, I made a special Halloween cake, that may just make Halloween fun again for us :)

Doesn't it look yummy? Chocolate cake... orange frosting for the pumpkin, green for the stem?

Wait... what's that inside?

Can you see it?

Why, there's a candle in my Jack-o-Lantern cake!

We greatly enjoyed this new Jack-o-Lantern Halloween Cake! Thanks, Amanda, for a way to make Halloween fun again for us :)

In addition to this fun cake, last week we also enjoyed:

  1. Since I've been focusing on chili for the last week, I had to check out your chili recipe. Looks great! I like that it does have more veggies than the recipe I've been using.

  2. Looks like a very yummy week at your house!! The Apple Blueberry Dump Cake and the Penne look so delicious. And the Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream...sounds divine! I'll for sure be back to see how that turns out!

  3. Sounds like a tasty week! That penne looks really yummy!

    Have a good week.

  4. I am so jealous that you are going to the David Crowder band concert!

    Have fun!
