Good Monday morning and happy November, everyone!  Wait a minute…it’s November?   It is so hard to believe that it is holiday time again!  Where did my summer go?  Oh, well, maybe we will have an Indian summer.  Maybe, please?

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween.  We had a great time with all of our trick-or-treaters and I think Ellie enjoyed it as much as any of us.  She loved all of the extra attention she got from the kiddoes and they loved to love on her.

This is a busy work week for me and I desperately need to go to the grocery, so this week’s menu is full of simple, old favorites except for the bubble up apple pie.  That was supposed to get made last week, but I had promised to make C an Oreo pie sometime, so I made that instead. Have a great week!

Wow, where did the last couple of months go?  I am so behind on blogging that it just isn’t funny, but hopefully this post is the beginning of normal again.  Sorry I have been MIA, but C & I have been so busy that something had to give and that something was the blog.  Now I am ready to jump back in with some new photos and recipes. 

Thanks so much for sticking with me and reading what few posts I had pre-planned.  I haven’t been doing a lot of cooking lately and the few new things I have tried really haven’t turned out as well as I had hoped.  The new recipes planned for this week mostly come from tried and true sources like The Pioneer Woman and Plain Chicken so they should be yummy!

Have a great week, everyone, and I am so happy to be back to blogging!

Tomato macaroni soup (new) and cornbread

I can tell summer is winding down because I am starting to crave soups and stews like crazy.  The temperatures aren’t cooperating just yet but as soon as the cooler weather starts, I am all over a big pot of spicy beef vegetable soup or chili or hamburger stew.  Yum!!!

Since it’s not quite time for those yet, I am sticking to some old favorites this week along with a new dessert to try if I have time.  The new fried pork chops I made last week turned out really good, but I hate the way the house smells after making fried food.  I quickly remembered why I don’t fry much. 

Grilled pork chops with oven fries

Sausage bake with salad

Enchilada beef dip with chips and salad

Slow cooker pineapple pork loin with butter roasted potatoes

Pizza night

Caramel apple upside down cake (new)

Happy Monday once again!  Really? It is really Monday AGAIN?  Yep, it sure is and here we go into another week of fun-filled adventures or just a week of normal work schedules and daily living. That’s ok too.  I kind of like our little routine.  I did treat myself last Friday by trying out the new nail salon in my little town for a much needed pedicure.  My poor feet were feeling a little neglected, but they got the spa treatment and a nice pretty coat of polish. 

I also got quite a bit of blogging done Saturday.  I had neglected this little space shamefully this summer, but I am now back on the wagon with several posts scheduled and more new recipes to try. 

Have a wonderful week!

Grilled Italian burgers with oven baked fries and fresh fruit

August is here and so is the hot and dry weather.  We have not had much rain this summer and our poor yard is showing the effects of that.  I have watered my flowers and garden so they look pretty good, but the grass…not so much.  It does save mowing time and gas so I guess I should look at the positive side of it. 

This is a busy work week for both C & myself so even though I do have some new recipes to try, they are simple and, I hope, tasty.  School starts on Wednesday so C will have his hands full and we have multiple court days this week so we will both hit the ground running. 

I hope all of you have a wonderful and productive week as well.

Happy Monday, folks!  Wow, has July gone by fast or is it just me?  It is hard to believe this is the last Monday of the month and summer is starting to wind down already.  Sorry I was MIA last week, but C & I took a staycation to get a little R & R and that seemed to include ignoring this little piece of online real estate.  It is back to normal this week and back to work as well. 

We had a great week off and got a few little things done at home, did a few fun things and rested a lot too.  All in all, it was time well spent!

This week’s menu is mostly all faves, but I do have a couple of new things to try next weekend if all works out well. 

Bubble up enchiladas with fresh fruit

Sliders with oven baked fries

Pizza night

Cheesy steak sandwiches with oven baked fries and fresh veggies

Crispy panko pork chops (new) with butter roasted potatoes
