    How nice to see you back! And Owen is meal-planning and cooking for the fam- Fantastic!

    I started making my menus on a Wed and shopping on Thu. Not sure why. Life just morphed that way and it works for us. I’ve found we have leftovers that often carry us a couple of days (especially now that it’s “soup season”) so this week my menu started on Saturday:

    Sat: Salmon and tomato soup
    Sun: Fish meatballs, green beans
    Mon: BBQ chicken, corn
    Tue: Sweet potato chowder
    Wed: Maple balsamic pomegranate scallops, salad

  4. 4

    I am late to the party, but there must be some meal prep vibes going, as we have been having carnitas on repeat. I made curried chicken salad and chicken pot pie soup for our lunches!

  5. 5

    I love cooking with my son. He’s now 15 but it’s still really fun.

    M: black bean & sweet potato enchiladas w/ salad

    Tu: Happy Halloween! Ribs, corn on the cob, Mac & cheese, jalapeño poppers

    W: pesto chicken & Alfredo sauce w/ spaghetti squash or pasta

    Th: coconut curry shrimp w/ rice & vegs

    F: Stromboli (using up l/o ingredients) & salad

    Sa: pork chops, cheesy cauliflower mash, green beans

    Su: friend’s birthday party

  6. 6

    It was very cold this week. Did not really make a plan, just a list of 8-10 things I could make with what is on hand. So far:

    — chili with cornbread
    — hamburgers and fries
    — baked trout and glazed carrots
    — local Mexican place
    — truffle mac, garden salad (last of the tomatoes)
    — baked chicken with herbed orzo
    — leftovers

    Thinking of biscuits and gravy for Sunday breakfast.

  7. 7

    Monday: Spaghetti with meatballs, salad and garlic bread
    Tuesday: Carnitas tacos, you guys talked me into it 🙂
    Wednesday: Chicken Tortellini Soup and Salad
    Thursday: Meatball subs w/ leftover meatballs
    Friday: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole (Pioneer Woman)
    Saturday: Having friends over so need to think about it.

    Have a wonderful week everyone.

    I’m totally guilty of the Saturday menu start too, especially when soups and stews are on the agenda geometry dash world. Those delicious aromas just fill the weekend vibes!
