menu plan monday ~ october 7, 2013

I am finding it hard to believe that the first week of October has come and gone. Time is flying by. We have started on the Christmas trees. Several are up and ready to decorate. Pictures to come soon. Yes, it’s early, but that how we do things here. We’re working toward that December 1 deadline. And this year, we don’t have a week between Thanksgiving and the first Sunday in December. That means everything has to be done by Thanksgiving. One of those few years when the calendar does not cooperate.

Outside the kitchen windows, the big oak tree is just beginning to turn gold.

Temperatures are much lower this week. It’s nice to be able to open windows and enjoy the fall weather. I’m trying to keep the menu easy this week. And the weekend will be busy with my sister Genny here to help with the holiday prep.
