Is it just me, or does it seem like September went by in a hurry? I had to pinch myself when I looked at the calendar and saw that October was this week! Our weather is slowly turning more fall-like. We’ve had a few days here and there where we’ve gotten rain, but then it creeps back into the 80’s again!
I don’t think we’re the only ones experiencing bi-polar weather, but I’m ready for fall! Yesterday, since the weather was nice (as in 87 degrees!) we (okay, that would be Josh) took advantage of it and finished some exterior painting and caulking, put away our pool, patio cushions, and, sadly, began preparing the barbecue for a long winter’s nap. And while I spent Saturday afternoon in the kitchen baking (just the way I roll!), Josh worked outside in the yard, pulling weeds and mowing. The kids played all day. Nice to be a kid!
It was nice and relaxing, though I may have annoyed our neighbors by blasting The Piano Guys Radio on Pandora all day. Oh, well.
I think this week’s menu is fun. It’s got a little of everything – a few favorites and a few recipes I’m looking forward to making for the first time.
I hope you check out some of our older menus if you need other dinner ideas. Have a great last week of September, everyone!
