My late Sunday post!

Time had a way of slipping away from me yesterday, and before I knew it I was snuggled into bed with my little man and heading off to dreamland.  So much for a blog post...but that's ok because that means I will just post twice today!

It's Halloween week around here, the ghouls and goblins are lurking about and I'm still so in love with vintage Halloween pieces.  They invoke such nostalgia from my childhood.  I know you remember those vinyl costumes with the plastic masks!  My mother made many of our costumes as kids.  We had a Mr. Potato Head made out of a burlap sack with styrofoam  balls for eyes, and a simple muslin tunic with the word CREST in felt letters down the front topped with a red bucket with a rectangle cut out of it so you could set...viola!  A tube of toothpaste! 

Sunday night found me upstairs spinning my sewing machine wheels and tying tulle, but I'll show you THAT later :)  Let's move onto what my Sunday post was really supposed to be about....meal plans and goals for the week.  Do you do this?  I'd love to see your weekly meals plans, share recipes and hear your weekly goals.  Please feel free to leave a comment and a link to your site!

MEAL PLAN:  week one

M:  Brown sugar glazed hamsteak with baked sweet potatoes, carrots
T:  Beef fajitas with Spanish rice
W:  Seasoned whole crock pot chicken, buttered noodles, peas
R:  Spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread, salad
F:  PIZZA DAY!
S:  Chicken tenders, buttered noodles, mixed vegetables
S:  Crab cakes, white rice, green beans

SHOPPING LIST:

2 hamsteaks
6 sweet potatoes
flank steak
Spanish rice mix
2 pkg tortilla
spaghetti
spaghetti sauce
beef
pre made garlic bread sticks/or make your own
1 bag chicken tenders/or 4 boneless breasts
2 pkg wide egg noodles
3 cans of crab meat
seasoned bread crumbs
1lb white or brown rice
frozen/fresh green beans
frozen/fresh peas
frozen/fresh mixed vegetables
frozen/fresh carrots
lettuce
cherry tomatoes
3 cucumbers
raisins
shredded cheese
brown sugar
butter
spices:  cumin, paprika, chili powder, onion and garlic salt

Now, many of these things I may already have on hand in the pantry.  Mainly my shopping list is for produce and meats.  I also am trying to makes more of my sauces and mixes from scratch.  I will share my fajita seasoning with you this week!

TIP:  I split my head of lettuce into four sections, wash and chop it, then put it in an 8 ounce mason jar in the fridge.  It keeps the lettuce from browning and is just the right amount of lettuce for a side salad for everyone!

WEEKLY GOAL: Complete two items on my to do list.

Please feel free to check out my other pages for menu plans, recipes, crafts, and everyday life!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
