Menu Plan Monday, October 22nd to 28th

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

It's been a crazy few weeks around here!  We are moved in, have been busy remodeling our new living room, having a birthday party, and enjoying our fall break!  This week we are back to our normal day to day routine as it is back to school this week after a three week fall break.  That's right a three week break.  One of the joys of homeschooling is getting to set our own schedule and I love taking time off during the fall when the weather is beautiful!  We are going to be starting our four week unit study and countdown to Thanksgiving on Tuesday, as we have co-op on Monday. 

So with the back to school routine we are going to be busy, and my crockpot (or crackpot as my phone's auto-correct loves to change it to) will be my best friend this week 

Here's what we have on the menu for this week:

Menu Plan Monday, October 1st to 7th

 
Join us for Menu Plan Monday at I'm An Organizing Junkie.
 
It's Menu Plan Monday, and I haven't posted in a little bit.  We have had some big and exciting changes around here that I haven't blogged much about lately but they will be a main part of my blog posts in the next few months.  We bought a new house.  We got it at an AMAZING price, which means it is going to need some work.  It is structurally sound but needs some cosmetics, paint, flooring, kitchen needs updating, stuff like that.  Which for the price we got it for, we can spend the money.  Plus, we like doing these things and we can do it the way we want it this way.  We are now in our new house but we have a mess, we still have quite a ways to go to get completely unpacked so that means meals are going to have to be pretty simple this week.
