What's for Dinner Menu Plan

Fall is definitely in the air. :) Our temperatures have been in the 70s for highs, and 50s for lows. Fabulous! Much better than the 100 degree temps we dealt with all summer. Monday was Labor Day, and we didn't have school. We took advantage of our day off and went for a run. I was feeling so good that I ran my first 10K ever! I was so proud of myself. The rest of the week was busy, but good. I had my book club fondue party on Thursday, and I finally finished sewing an apron for my friend Melissa on Saturday. Isn't she cute? :)

I'm continuing to use my freezer stash to get through my weekly meals. Back in August I did some serious freezer cooking to prepare for the busy days at the beginning of school. Here is my freezer before:

and here is my freezer after:

Pretty nice, huh! Anyway, having some meals ready to go really saves me this time of year. Later this week I will finally be taking my mom to the oncologist. We can definitely use some prayers for that one. And this weekend, my brother is coming to visit from New York! I'm very much looking forward to some family time this coming weekend.

Here's this week's menu. Enjoy and have a great week! Be sure to follow me on Facebook to get fast updates from the blog. :)

Awesome job on the run! I wish there was a book club around here, it sounds so fun. I live out in the sticks so there isn't much here like that. Orange Teriyaki Chicken sounds super good.

I'd like to know more about your steak pizza. Have you made it before? I'd love to know more details.

Carrie, I modify Pioneer Woman's pizza recipe (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/09/steakhouse-pizza/). I use my own crust recipe, and don't use as much butter and onion as she does in her recipe.
