Finally a Fall Menu!

It’s Fall! Well, it has been for a few weeks, but this week it is actually going to feel like fall! And you know what that means… chili! It’s on my menu this week for sure! And the photo above is a dessert I’m making tonight. It’s Ina Garten’s Tres Leches. I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out!

Next week is a fairly normal week for us, so dinner will be at home every night, which we actually like! J and H are heading out on their first scouting camp out so I think L and I will find somewhere fun to go to dinner on Friday night – just us girls! Does anyone have any suggestions for a fun restaurant in the Sugar Land area?

Ok, here it is – our menu for next week!

Sunday: Breakfast for Dinner. Not going to lie… I’m sort of phoning this one in. I love doing pretty much nothing on Sundays.  We have some Kerbey Lane pancake mix in our pantry so I’m going to throw those pancakes together and scramble some eggs and call it done. Isn’t it funny how kids just love breakfast for dinner?!

Monday: Quinoa Enchilada Bake. This is easy to prep ahead of time and then pop in the oven when it’s time to eat. Monday’s are our busy day, so this is perfect for us.

Tuesday: Paleo Jalapeno Popper Chicken Chili. The forecast calls for rain and cooler weather so my appetite is calling for chili. This is my favorite chicken chili recipe because you just dump it and go. And it’s delicious.

Wednesday: Slow Cooker Turkey Meatloaf. This was requested by J. It’s one of his favorite meals.

Thursday: Sheet Pan Chicken with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and Brussels Sprouts. If you can’t tell I love sheet pan meals. And roasted brussels sprouts!

This is our last lazy weekend for a while so tonight we are grilling fajitas and enjoying our back porch with friends!

Have a great Saturday! And Hook ‘Em!
