Menu Plan–October 14

This last week was such a blast – minus the 9.5 hours of exam grading I did yesterday.

But, that doesn’t overshadow the fun I had all week with my students, as well as on Friday when my mom came over to help Frog Prince and I finish up painting {imagine before: dark brown woodwork, tan walls, a dark vanity} our guest room & bathroom.

We had such fun painting – and I got to make our favorite soup in the crockpot for lunch, which we paired with bread machine French Bread

The recipe highlight of the week goes to the Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken.  We’ve made this many times before, but this week I tossed in 3 diced bell peppers & used crushed pineapple + pineapple juice in the sauce.  Wowee!

Also, if you missed it – over the weekend I shared 25 fall recipes for sweet potatoes.  Did you know, they are healthier & cheaper than using pumpkin?  Your eaters will never know the difference.
