Menu Plan–September 9

Hello Fall!  The weather finally changed on Friday and boy, has it been GORGEOUS!  I love fall.  Windows wide open. Sweatshirts. Blankets. Breeze. Colors. Apples. Pumpkins. Yum!  That spurred me to change up the blog look for fall --

  1. Oh, I almost forgot about the Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan until I saw it on your menu plan for this week. That's a good one! :)

    1. Yes, us too! We love it, but it's not always on our radar either as we try so many new recipes. But, it's one of our favs and dinner tonight was delicious - especially using our garden spaghetti sauce. It would have been better had we been able to share dinner with you & your boys.

  2. I am so jealous of your menu planning...I hope to someday be as organized as you!! What a yummy looking week :)

    1. Thanks, Taylor. You are sweet. We still need to get together :)


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