Menu - Week of October 2, 2011
October is finally here and in the Northeast we are really noticing the change in seasons. Leaves are falling along with the temps and much to my chagrin, it's getting dark much earlier these days. My camera and I are mourning the loss of natural light. I am also in full-on comfort food mode, as you will see in the menu plan below.
I'm also excited because next week is Baby Girl's second birthday, which we're celebrating on Saturday. Hard to believe two years have passed already. Where does the time go? And the day after her birthday is our 8th wedding anniversary. These two milestones truly mark the beginning of the fun and festive fall and holiday season for me and I can't wait.
Sunday - Salisbury Steak, Blue Cheese and Scallion Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach
Monday - Goat Cheese, Sweet Onion, Apple and Brandy Stuffed Chicken, (for the recipe swap and I'm planning to modify it), oven roasted potatoes, corn
Tuesday - Gnocchi Mac and Cheese, side salads
Wednesday - Pan Seared Pork with Citrus Rum Sauce, mashed potatoes, green beans
Thursday - Ranch Pasta with Bacon, Spinach and Tomatoes
