Leftovers from Thanksgiving

Of course, I have all kinds of yummy Thanksgiving food in the works…

Thanksgiving morning, we’ll be having our traditional Apple Baked French Toast

For our big yummy meal (of which we will surely have leftovers for a very looooonggg time), I’m making:
turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, brussel sprouts (My hubby’s the only one who loves these, but I love him…hence, they’re on the menu!) potato filling, sweet potato casserole, rolls, cranberry relish, and pumpkin pie.  So far, I think that’s all  🙂

Have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family as you reflect on the many blessings from the Lord!

Fridge Makeover

This post has been in the works for awhile, and I’m just now getting around to finishing and publishing it!  Many apologies…

You know how the outside of your fridge gets cluttered?  So many cute photos, honey-do lists, important dates to remember, magnets…and on it goes.  I really wanted a clean-cut look to the fridge…so I ran with this idea I found on pinterest…

Now I have my calendar in a cute frame, and all those pictures in matching frames!  No more clutter, very clean cut, and super cute!  🙂

And the top of the fridge?  Well, I’m in love with that too.  I’m enjoying the fall pumpkin theme alongside the bright yellow pitcher…keeping things both seasonal and cheery!  The wooden crate/basket is great for stashing things in like the candle lighter, pizza menu, and any other random things that might need a home in the kitchen!  🙂

Anyone else have any tips on how to keep your fridge doors clutter-free?

Menu Plan Monday

We were so blessed this week by a HUGE food shower for seminary students.  God was so good in blessing us with so much food!  Because of that food shower, we’re able to eat mostly from our cupboards and stockpile again.  I plan to make a quick trip to ALDI for produce, meat, and a few other odds and ends to complete our meals for the week. 

Main Meals

Hawaiin Crockpot Chicken, rice, salad

French dip subs, salad

Roasted Shrimp, Tomatoes & Feta, rice, veggies

Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ chicken, roasted potatoes, veggies


Breakfast for dinner

Dinner at friends’ home

Are you looking for new lunch ideas?  I’m not sure where I got the idea, but my new favorite lunch (or in my case supper since Jared works 2nd shift) is spinach salad with hardboiled eggs, dried cranberries, and feta cheese.  Yummy!
