Menu Plan–September 24

Happy Fall!  The days are getting shorter and the trees are changing color… and I’m loving it.    I’m all about apples & pumpkin sweet potato in this house. 

We started off the chilly weekend with a trip to the farmers market, followed by 5+ hours in the kitchen to prepare 56 C of produce (tomatoes & bell peppers) for our freezer.  We are now well stocked.

  1. We're making English Muffins breakfast sandwiches this week too! I'm so glad to see you have a recipe for DIY English Muffins...I just bought some from the store and paid a lot for them, and was curious if they would be easy to do myself. Looks like they are!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
