Menu Plan Monday ~ September 24/12

Hi beautiful people, how are you?  How was your week?  I hope having a menu plan made your week go super smooth.  I don’t have any delicious food pictures to share with you today so I took a picture of these lovely sweet peas to make it up to you.  My girlfriend gave me these from her garden.  Their smell is incredible!

    Those sweetpeas are lovely, but I’m sitting here in a blanket after walking the kids to the bus in 45 degree weather! 🙂

    I’ve been looking for new slow cooker and make-ahead meals, so thank you for the links! Just a heads up, though, there’s some extra text in them that’s breaking the links …

    I love the flowers! We had sweet peas all over the roadside when I was a kid growing up in Oregon. We loved picking them because the smell is incredible and they are so pretty. I hope you have a great week.

    Thanks for the “review” on crock pot recipes – for the past three weeks we’ve had Wednesday crock pot night because it’s our craziest night with church.
    Have a great week!

    I love that tortellini soup but I do a cheater version – creamy tomato soup in a Carton from the grocery store and just heat it up, add in pesto and tortellini I cooked earlier in the day. I serve it with pizza bites from a recipe on Annie’s eats blog. Family fave!!!
