Howdy! What’s going on with you? Did you find menu planning for this week a breeze or a little more difficult? I definitely find some weeks are easier than others especially trying to come up with a menu plan that my whole family will enjoy.
I shared last week on Facebook that one of the recipes I tried out, the Autumn Sausage Casserole, was a total bust. I have never had my family revolt so much over a meal. The funny thing is I absolutely loved it and I really dislike rice. Go figure that one! I just thought the flavors were really different and fallish :) You win some and you lose some I guess. Did anyone else give it a try?
Some of you might remember that last week I also had Spaghetti Ham Bake on the menu…the recipe makes two casseroles and we made one for us and one to share. Who did we end up sharing with? Well October is Pastor appreciation month so it was a surprise for our Pastor. The youth of our church also gave some free nights of babysitting. I found the cutest free babysitting coupons online that I simply printed off on card stock and had the kids sign their names to. Click on the picture below to download and print your own. Love it!!
