Foodie Friday

Happy November! Today is feels more like December with all the snow we have suddenly got. Avery told me it was “freezing cold and we need to take a plane to Arizona until the sun comes back” – I am with her!

This week’s highlight was Halloween! Despite the weather being less then ideal we still enjoyed trick or treating around the neighbourhood! I love going out trick or treating and think it is sad so many people just go to the mall now – they are missing out on all the fun! We went out for around 15-20 houses in 45 minutes and they girls baskets were both over full when we got home.

My little kitty who loves to meow:

And the very spooky vampire…

Enjoying some candy after:

The rest of the week was quiet which was good since next week is crazy for me with my work schedule, first week of marathon training and Avery’s 4th birthday!

My favourite meal from last week was the Turkey Kale Pasta bake! It was an old favourite that I am happy I made again. I only used spinach instead of kale and no cheese on some for Chloe.

Saturday – Chicken Burrito Bowls

Sunday – Tomato Spinach Chicken Spaghetti – Julia’s Album

Monday – Hoisin Stir Fry Bowls – Budget Bytes

Tuesday – Leftovers (I work late)

WednesdaySouptacular (crockpot soup)

Thursday – OUT

Friday – Chicken fingers, fries & salad – Avery’s birthday choice!

Our big weekend plans are Avery’s birthday party! We have rented a place so this is the first non-home party we will have which meant a lot less work for me too 🙂

    I agree with A too…you should definitely just go to Arizona until the snow clears 😉 Hope you guys have a great time celebrating A’s 4th birthday!!! P.S. they looks adorable in their costumes 😍

    I don't get how people go to the malls either. I went when Liam was one and it was the worst thing in the world. Never again. Liam didn't last long, he was tired after swimming lessons and the cold probably didn't help. Which is ok, means less candy to tempt me.

    I'm going to have to try that pasta bake. I need some new easy recipes to add to the mix. Freezable ones are even better!

    I never comment, but feel like I should today. Meal planning (or cooking at all these days) challenges me and I often come to see what you make. I'm always impressed with what you feed your family and often try new recipes from your posts. So thank you!

      You made my day with your comment! Some nights I spend way too long meal planning and struggle big time. It's hard with little ones and trying to find things they'll like. I'm happy I can give you ideas, it's a huge reason why I do these posts!

    I think the malls are lame. You are supposed to be cold at Halloween! ha BUT Avery is right we should just all pack up and move south!
    They looked so cute though!
