Menu Plan–October 20

With Frog Prince and I working full time (or more than full time), menu planning is a huge help.  This allows us to plan meals that use the crockpot, which is a huge time saver for us.  Our dinner on Friday night was a new one – a balsamic pork roast-- and a HUGE hit.  I can’t wait to share this recipe with you.

We also save time during the week by prepping ingredients for the next day while we make dinner.  Sure, it’s not always fun, but we’re thankful that we are able to make so much of our own food.  

We had a great weekend.  Friday we started off by playing 7 Wonders with new friends from church (and trying a new dessert with them).  The dessert was a hit, in fact, there’s only one piece left and I haven’t even had a chance to photograph it. 

Saturday we spent in the kitchen before 11am we had made waffles, two loaves of bread, cream of mushroom soup, wild rice hotdish, granola and ice cream.  Then, we processed all the remaining produce from our garden (since they predicted the first freeze here on Saturday night).  It was tiring, but feels good to have it done now. 

Today is a relaxing day after church and then tonight we get together with our Life Group and are looking forward to it.
