It’s officially Fall, but the forecast here in Southern California isn’t screaming for soup, pumpkin cookies, and roasted acorn squash like I’m so badly craving right now! (Tip: I actually do check the forecast for the week ahead while menu planning so I don’t make soup when it will be 100 degrees outside or force TJ to BBQ with an umbrella. Maybe a little OCD).
On top of that, this baby can come literally at any moment (as I breath through another contraction), so my menu is not at all the caliber I would normally like to be at as far as creativity goes. Honestly, I’m a little bored of the food I chose this week, but it’s all easy to pull off and takes little time and that is exactly what this week calls for. So, maybe you also just need a week like us.
Who knows? Maybe we won’t even get to eat any of it because we’ll be too busy snuggling our boy! I sure hope so!
Here’s what we’re eating (for $42 bucks)…exciting stuff:
