This week and Menu Plan Monday

This has been a really rough week emotionally. Luckily it has stopped raining...I pray everyone perks up.

My meal plan helped I am doing it again!

Porkchops, brussel sprouts, scalloped potatoes
Tuna Casserole, peas
Chicken Pesto Packets with Penne AGAIN
Chicken and Dressing, cranberry sauce, green beans
Leftover Buffet
Country Fried Venison, mashed potatoes and gravy, Fordhook Limas
(sorry I didn't gather links this week)

Fall is here, but it has not "fallen" yet. I can't wait to get started outside doing the big fall cleanup-pruning trees and roses, blowing leaves, mulching. Getting the goats and pigs ready for winter. Filling my storage building with hay...
The change of season is always exciting for me.

I still have not finished planting my fall garden. It has rained every stupid day for about 2-3 weeks. My square foot garden beds have been too wet and now my brussell sprout plants are dead. I need to go buy more before it is too late. The squash and pumpkins are up and doing well. Something has been munching in my broccoli and cabbage though. Ugh.

In quilting news (oh, I don't think I mentioned that) I have a quilt I have to have quilted by this coming Saturday. It is loaded on my frame, all I have to do is start. I have no idea what I want to do on it...but I want it to be spectacular. It is for a very special little boy's 1st birthday.

It is going to be a great week!

Life has gotten in the way lately...I had big hopes when I started this blog. I read many blogs daily and I just didn't feel like I had anything interesting to post about...then I realized that AT THIS POINT I have zero who cares?

My main purpose anyway is to have something to remember these days by...a journal of I am NOT going to stress about it!
