I've been felling all domestic and nesty this week. Fall seems to be postponing it's arrival around here so I've just decided to ignore the sun and start fall preparations anyway. I drew the line when the kids asked if they could start a fire in the fireplace...even though I thought long and hard about it before I said no.
So today we picked as many apples as we could reach from the trees in the backyard. I even picked a few pears. I baked cookies and pies and apple sauce. I've got stews and roasts on the menu and school projects on the brain. Christmas crafts and ideas are floating through my head and Halloween costumes are washed and ready to wear. I've never been more ready for the rain.
Here's what is cooking this week.
Bread Machine Cinnamon Buns, oatmeal and fruit
Chipotle Pork Roast
Browned Beef Stew (this recipe is THE BEST if you like thick stews)
Chinese Style Noodle and Pork Soup (using up leftover Pork Roast)
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
French Toast and Sausage (breakfast for dinner night)
