Week 336 Menu: Halloween week

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  I'm feeling like I can tackle this week, probably because we don't have any soccer practice or games for the first time since MAY!!!  (I didn't realize that fall/spring soccer started in May and went all summer.  That was a surprise!)  We've already started into the next sport, basketball, but it's kind of nice to have a change in schedule.

Anyway...How was your weekend?  Mine was really fun.  Two of my kids had games on Saturday (flag football and soccer).  And yesterday was our long awaited children's primary presentation at church.  I got to speak for a minute and the kids sang songs they'd been working on all year and shared their own testimonies of Christ.  It was a neat meeting...then we had lots of fun the other two hours in church.  I'm very lucky to be able to work with the kids in my ward.  They are special spirits for sure!  
This kid is keeping me on my toes with his two year old independence, but he likes my apple fruit leather.
Now that the primary program is over, I am starting to think about Halloween.  I've still got four days to pull together some cute costumes.  This week we need to take time to carve the pumpkins on our porch.  We grew pumpkins in our garden.  They're pretty small and weird looking, but fun to grow.  And we need to make our annual Halloween doughnuts.  I love making doughnuts and we only do it once a year.  Super yummy and not too hard either.

I think I disappointed my family last week because I didn't make dinner (at all) two nights in a row.  They didn't starve, but I think coming a nicely prepared dinner is welcoming and comforting after a long day at school/work.  This week I'm going to do much better.  Menu planned already!

Monday:  BBQ meatballs, baked potatoes, roasted butternut squash (from my garden)

Tuesday:  chicken noodle soup, fresh light and fluffy whole wheat bread

Thursday:  oven fried chicken, baked potato chips, salad

Friday:  Halloween carnival

Sunday:  chicken fajitas

What about you?  What are you making this week?   Happy Halloween!
