Week 4 of my new Menu making habit! I’m finding I get excited about putting my menu together and our meals have been much better. I definitely am feeling more “with it” when meal time comes around, which is a great benefit of this exercise.
It’s Halloween Week and I wanted to incorporate some fun “Halloweeny” dishes. My favorite is to make a meatloaf and wrap it in lasagna noodles, but I had meatloaf last week and I’m now gluten free. UGH! Another famous Halloween special that I’ve made in the past is “Kitty Litter Cake“. I made it about 8 years ago and there was much “grossing out” as it really did look like kitty littler. My children remind me EVERY year not to make the kitty litter cake. Giggles…I think that means they WANT me to make it again. Maybe I’ll have to figure out a gluten free version. I’m laughing just thinking about it.
I guess I’ll just have to be creative with some new meals. I could make my Pumpkin Burgers into finger shapes and have “Finger” Sandwiches on Monday. My Spaghetti zoodles make great “brains” And the Chicken Cacciatore is, well, quite gruesome looking all on it’s own. I’ll let my kiddos tell me what it is.
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore, Tomato and Onion salad, Iced Tea
Thursday: Spaghetti with zoodles, Salad, GF breadsticks, Iced Tea
Friday: We generally have a potluck meal that we share with friends on Halloween night. We will contribute Chili, Cornbread and hot apple cider.
Saturday: Left Overs or Eat out
