menu plan monday ~ october 1, 2012

Another busy weekend. DH spent time getting our son’s house ready for its sale. The new owners move in on Thursday. Wondering if we’ll get a quiet weekend any time soon. At this point, perhaps not until January. This is a busy time of year for us. We have less than nine weeks to make the house ready for our annual Christmas open house the first Sunday in December. That time will fly by!

The twins made pancakes with Pa for lunch on Sunday.

Sunday afternoon, we looked for signs of autumn in the yard. Finding more of them every day.

Butterflies and bees and flies and other insects are all over the sedums and the asters.

    I’m hopping by from Menu Plan Monday today!
    Our 20 yr old son still talks about the times we would cook together. It’s a wonderful way to bond with your children.
    Don’t you just enjoy this time of year?
    I love the crisp Autumn temps of Southern Maine when I was living there. For the last 18 yrs I’ve been on the West coast so no fall foliage to enjoy.
    Your menu plan sounds so delicious.
