After a couple busy work months things are now settled down – which means maybe, just maybe I will get back to this blog! We had a fairly uneventful week – days fly by and before I know it Friday is here every week so without much to share here is next week’s meal plan.
Saturday – Souptacular & biscuits
Sunday – Baked salmon, Potato & Asparagus Salad – Oh She Glows
Monday – Family Supper
Tuesday – Butternut Squash Ravioli with sauteed spinach & chicken sausage
Wednesday – Turkey Tacos
Thursday – Slow Cooker Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken & rice – Budget Bytes
Friday – Roasted Chickpea Nachos (because we all need easy Friday night suppers!)
Weekend plans – first of all, it is Avery’s 5th birthday! We are also curling in a bonspiel with my work AND it is a long weekend!
November you guys?! I actually love this time of the year as it is all about Christmas for me very soon 😉 And in 8 days Miss. Avery turns 5!
Highlight of our week was obviously Halloween. Chloe was a princess for dayhome and then changed into another princess dress for trick or treating. Avery was a genie:
I took the girls out for an hour and they did great! It was SO nice out too! We only had 40 kids to our house which seems low.
My meal planning report from last week on Goodfood? I loved it! I liked the meals, they were fairly simple to make and was enough for us four for supper and three lunches – so decent quantities!
Saturday – At a friend’s house
Sunday – Slow Cooker Banh Mi Rice Bowls – Skinny Taste
Monday – Crockpot Chicken Tacos – Chocolate Therapy
Tuesday – Pizza night!
Wednesday – Pesto pasta with shrimp
Thursday – Thai Cashew Chicken – Well Plated
Friday – OUT
This weekend we have Avery’s birthday party, swimming lessons and a get together with friends 🙂
Aside from another busy week the only eventful thing I have to share is falling down the stairs and possibly breaking my toe 🙁 The good news is it is not that painful and most of my normal activities are still okay.
Also, how it is Halloween next week?! I have no idea what Chloe is going to dress up as – it changes daily, and Avery is being a genie. I cannot say I love Halloween but taking the girls trick or treating is a highlight for sure.
Next week we are trying Good Food after a friend gave me a couple free meals to try it – I have not used any meal kit service in a couple years but on a busy week I am excited to have it.

Jumping right into our week! Highlight of my week was my annual work gala!

Short weeks are my fave 🙂 You blink and it is the weekend again!
Our week highlights:
Avery got her ear pierced. YES EAR. Not EARS. Long story short we will be going back tomorrow for ear #2. Sigh. However, she is now quite excited about finally having an earning 😉
Better photo coming when we have two earrings in 🙂
My Mom and I went to a terrarium workshop for my birthday present from her – we loved how ours turned out! Now to keep mine alive…
And Chloe sporting a new hat from a company I work with:
