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
Tuesday - Basic Crockpot Chili
Wednesday - Vegetable Soup with Hamburger
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:
Monday - Italian Sausage with Green Peppers and Onions
Tuesday - Bubble's volleyball ga…
