So another week is here! I’ve had the most beautiful day of puttering around, one of my favorite ways to spend a day. No commitments, just a little bit of this and a little bit of that, getting all those itty bitty details taken care of that seem to pile up during the week. Of course I still have four loads of laundry to do but I’ll get to those eventually 🙂
So it seems that as the school year gets going and fall sets in we have many more participants joining us for Menu Plan Monday. In fact, we were six short of 400 last week!! It makes me so happy to know that people are starting off this season on an organized foot. Menu planning makes a huge difference and I just want everyone to see how taking a few minutes once a week to plan your meals can literally change your life. It doesn’t have to be complicated, it doesn’t have to be fancy, it just has to be enough to give you the peace of mind that you don’t have to worry about what you’ll be serving your family each night for dinner.
I purchased Taste of Home’s Summer Slow Cooker Meals cookbook back in July to giveaway here on the blog and then life happened and I never got around to it. However even though we are no longer in the midst of summer (at least not in my neck of the woods!), I’d still like to give it away to one of YOU to enjoy.
So this is what I’m going to do. If today we get over 400 Menu Plan Monday participants I will giveaway this cookbook to one random participant from the Mr. Linky list below. You’ll have to link up to your menu plan before Wed, Sept 23rd at 12:00 pm PST to be eligible. If we don’t happen to get over 400 participants then I’ll carry the prize forward to the next week and so on.
Last week’s recipe highlight goes to the Kid-Pleasing Spaghetti which I made for my girlfriend. She tells me her four kids gobbled it up. It’s a nice one dish inexpensive meal to make and take to someone in need.
Here’s what we’ll be eating here this week:
Monday: Sausage Potato Soup (missed from last week)
Tuesday: Chicken Pasta Primavera
Thursday: Leftover buffet
Friday: Quick Homemade Pizza
Saturday: Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops served with rice and veggies
Simple Supper Sunday
