Week 32 - Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

It is a bit crazy around the house today just from the anticipation of Halloween and all of the candy they will gather tonight!  I can't imagine what the kids are going to be doing after they actually eat some of the candy! 
The Gypsy, the Bride, Jasmine and Nemo!
Now, we can get onto our weekly menu planning!  Halloween was so much fun for the kids and for the adults too!  Our whole cul-de-sac went trick-or-treating together, so it was 9 kids at a time at each house.  They swarmed on each door like a pack of bees!

Below you'll find a photo of our family's favorite veggie right now.  I think my youngest Zach might be the only one who is impervious to this yummy delicacy.  Annabelle and Emilie finally understand that roasted cauliflower is one of the most delicious side dishes EVER!  It only took my making it once a week for a few months before I actually converted them.  Now, they eat it like popcorn!

For the menu this week, here it is:

Sunday - Whole Rotisserie chicken, roasted cauliflower, steamed green beans, white rice
Monday - Pizza with neighbors
Tuesday - Chicken tacos, black beans, white rice
Wednesday - Baked salmon, mixed roasted veggies and potatoes
Thursday - Chili Verde, yellow rice, roasted carrots
Friday - Out of town
Saturday - Leftovers

I hope you all have a great week!  Happy cooking, everyone!
