Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Caramel Corn

Join us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays at Blessed with Grace.

Normally on Tempt My Tummy Tuesdays I share my own recipes, but unfortunately I just haven't had much time lately to cook and I just couldn't resist this recipe.

When I logged onto my blog reader today I found this Caramel Corn recipe at Full Bellies, Happy Kids and just had to try it.  Not only is this a simple and easy recipe but I have all of the ingredients for it in my cabinet. 

Next time I make it though I am going to try adding some peanuts or pecans to it.

Menu Plan Monday - October 18th to 24th

This week I have a ton of ground beef to use up this week, I have had it in my freezer for a while now and I am afraid that it will go bad if I don't use it.  So this week is full of recipes that use ground beef.

Here's what I have planned

Thursday - Smoked Sausage Au Gratin Recipes  (the only non-ground beef recipe this week)

Friday - Sloppy Joes, Mashed Potatoes

Saturday - Visiting My Mom

Sunday - Eating Out After Church

Menu Plan Monday - October 11th to 17th

Join us for Menu Plan Monday at I'm an Organizing Junkie.

As many of you know a few months ago I went back to work and subsequently started neglecting my blog.  I know bad, bad blogger.  I knew the job I took wasn't ideal for my family but I needed a job, and I knew it would work until I could find the job that I really wanted.  After waiting (not so patiently I am afraid) and much praying I have finally found a new job that is perfect for my family.  Monday through Friday from 8 to 5, which means no weekends or nights away from my family.  It is really what I need.  I am hoping that not only does this new job mean more family time for me but that it also means more blogging time because I really have missed you all.  This will also mean more simple suppers throughout the week, stuff I can put together the night before or cook in the crockpot. 

Here's what I have planned for this week:

Tuesday - Bubble's volleyball game - eating out

Wednesday -  Easy Baked Ziti

Thursday - Sloppy Joes, Macaroni and Cheese, Corn

Sunday - Bubbles and The Teenagers Birtday Party -Roast Beef and Gravy, homemade mashed potatoes, My Grandmothers Green Beans, Stewed Tomatoes, Squash Casserole, Cinnamon Apples, Bacon Deviled Eggs, Yummy Dinner Rolls
