Weekly Menu Plan – October 12, 2009

This past week has been one of the longest weeks.  It seems like the week got progressively worse as it went on.  As I shared on Saturday, baby Wyatt lost his 44 day battle.  Then, on Sunday, I received news that a friend lost her battle with breast cancer.  She was only 40 years old.  Another friend of mine, Karen, wrote a blog post that says it all very well. 

We have a busy week coming up.  Hockey is in full swing, that is on top of all of the other stuff, like Hannah’s gymnastics & skating.  Also, my half marathon is this coming Sunday!  I feel like I am ready & now I just want the day to be here!  The weather forecast says chilly & dry.  I’ll take that! 

Cheryl from Gluten-free Goodness is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap and her chosen theme is apples!  OOH!!  I have been loving the Honeycrisps this year!  One of my favorite breakfasts is cooking up a half of a Honeycrisp in the micro with cinnamon and then putting that on top of some gluten-free waffles with almond butter.  So fall-like!!  Here is one of my favorite apple recipes:  Crockpot Applesauce .

Sunday – Find your own food night! LOL!

Monday – Spaghetti with marinara, roasted veggies & salad

Tuesday – Make your own Tacos, black beans & salad

Wednesday – Burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans & salad

Thursday – Crock pot BBQ pulled pork, baked potatoes, broccoli & salad

Friday – Calzones, veggies & salad

Saturday – Pumpkin Baked Ziti, veggies & salad

Baked Goods

Pumpkin Cookies


Pamela’s Bread

  4. Dear Kim, I am so sorry to hear about all the losses in your family this week. My thoughts are with you and Wyatt’s parents and your friend’s family. I hope the week goes smoothly for you, with lots of space for grieving and healing.

    I just took a pumpkin chocolate loaf, made with your recipe from last week, out of the oven. It’s cooling on the counter right now, and the amazing smell is drifting down the hall to tantalize me. I will be sending lots of pumpkin chocolate love your way when I have my first bite!
