Yesterday was so busy I forgot that it was “Monday” and I needed to post.  I’m not sure I’m loving the new schedule this Autumn which sees me doing groceries on Monday afternoon.  There were far too many vehicles in the parking lot.

This is a busy week.  I’ve got to get the house (well, the downstairs part) ready for company because we are actually having company for Thanksgiving.  I have no idea what Colin’s family are doing, so I invited my best friend, her son, and her new fellow to come up.  Since her move to Ottawa I ‘never’ get to see her any more and I really miss our weekly knit night.  Speaking of knitting, I may not get to a Yarn Along/Crafting On post today.  Just imagine a little more knitting on Ella and Grandma’s socks.  I will be so glad when I’m done these socks.  They are taking forever.

Tuesday:

spaghetti

tacos

Wednesday:

leftover tacos

pork chops

Thursday:

pizza

baked chimichangas -freezer

Friday:

leftover pizza

sesame chicken and noodles

Saturday:

bacon and eggs (I need the extra bacon for Monday)

Sunday:

chicken cacciatore -freezer

Menu Plan Monday is a little late today.  We were out and heading for Pembroke early this morning.  It’s the start of Book Club with the Pembroke group.  They are doing Diary of a Young Girl (Anne Frank).  It was a good morning.  It’s also made Ella very glad she’s not in school and that we follow the Charlotte Mason method of schooling.

Monday:

scalloped chicken -new recipe from a very old book

Tuesday:

leftover chicken

Wednesday:

leftover chicken

Thursday:

spaghetti

Friday:

Even though we are still boiling and counting down the days until the nice weather comes back, we’re heading into Fall fog season.

All fogged in at 8 am Sunday morning.

It actually got a bit foggier after the pictures.

Three hours later and we can see the trail, the highway and all the way back to the next side road.

Ta da!  The neighbours suddenly appear.

Our mornings will look like this for about the next two weeks.  It also coincides with the start of duck season.  It’s a little disconcerting to be out wandering around in the fog listening to the sound of gunfire.  It’s a weird, muffled sound, sort of like the play for Remembrance day.

Not really sure what’s up for this week.  We have a ‘park day’ planned but we don’t always make those, especially when they are up in Petawawa.  I have a new dress cut out, so hopefully I can get some sewing done.  If the promised cool weather arrives I can get some baking done too.  I’m tired of buying cookies from the store.

 

Monday:

everyday meatloaf -new crock pot recipe

Tuesday:

Cesky goulash and crispy German potato pancakes

Wednesday:

leftover meatloaf

Thursday:

leftover goulash

Friday:

Back to school today.  We are off to a great start, at the table shortly after 9.  Gotta love that.  Hard to believe Ella’s in grade 7 this year.

A word of warning from last week’s menu, the lentil meatballs did NOT meet the approval of the meat eaters in our house.  They are NOT a good replacement for real meatballs. They will NOT be repeated.  Colin and I did enjoy the homemade ‘ramen-type’ noodles and the garlic beef bowls. They WILL be repeated.

 

Monday:

leftovers for Daddy

Tuesday:

beef stew (from freezer) with cheesy baked croquettes

Wednesday:

chicken paprikash -new Crockpot recipe

Thursday:

leftover stew

Friday:

crispy Mongolian beef 

Saturday:

double crunch pork chops

Sunday: 

leftover Mongolian beef

Well that was a couple of nice at the end of last week.  But now, you’d never know it is September.  So hot and muggy, but the pool has dropped almost too much for swimming.  It’s 8 am and already 23C in the house with 80% humidity.  My poor lungs are so tired of trying to breath under water -ha ha.  I’m wheezing literally just walking around the house.  Public schools are back to work tomorrow.  We have our ‘not back to school’ picnic on Wednesday.  Hopefully Ella’s friends will make it out.  We got lots to do this week, so we won’t be starting ‘school’ this week.  I may get Ella back into it by starting back at her math this week.  We’ll really get back in the swing next week.

Monday:

French toast (Ella style if she’s home from Grandma’s)

BBQ chicken thighs -new crockpot recipe

Tuesday:

grilled cheese
