Menu Plan - September 5

I survived my first week as a college professor!  Wow.  It was fun, a whirl wind and Frog Prince and I continue to learn how to adjust to both of us working full time.

We took advantage of the long weekend and invited my grandparents over to our new house -- although it's far from finished {we don't even have couch yet}, it was wonderful to have them over and to make dinner for them!

In addition to a yummy apple bacon pork roast {new recipe}, Grandma's apple pie and twice baked potatoes, we also enjoyed:

Cherry Blueberry Breakfast Cake
{recipe to come}

Pizza Margherita

Caramel Apple Cake
{recipe to come}

Balsamic Chicken
{recipe to come}

I'm looking forward to the day off tomorrow -- a day to catch up and get ready for the rest of the semester.  Oh, and we will be grilling tomorrow... because Frog Prince got his grill today :)
