Menu for the week of October 3rd – 9th

Our wedding anniversary is this Thursday, and Brian and I will be taking a much needed trip to Lake Tahoe at the end of the week,
leaving all three children with my family.  I’m slightly worried, since this will be my first time leaving a nursing baby – I was not able to nurse the boys past their 7 month mark, and Elizabeth is already over 9 months, and I am anxious to continue our nourishing relationship for many more months!

Our menu is still indulging in some of my autumn favorites… I’m still waiting for the weather to remember it’s fall – we’re supposed to be in the upper 80’s again!

  1. These menus look great, Meg. Where do you get all your ideas from?? I have a hard time just figuring out what to have for dinner each day!

    • Hi Denise –
      I have 3-4 cookbooks that I browse thru when I need ideas, but I mostly just try to stick to things I “know” my family will like, and that I know how to cook! It’s not often I have extra time to experiment in the kitchen, so I really strive to do what I know. 🙂 Check out the Real Food Media blogs – there are so many people out there that are working towards a healthier diet, too. They are always great for some inspiration. 🙂
