  1. I’m visiting from Organized Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today. I’m also listening to ‘Cooking with Emeril’ on the Martha Stewart Show. He’s talking about a blood orange vinaigrette and fennel salad that just sounds so delicious right now.
    Looks like there’s going to be some amazing meals this week.
    Happy Halloween!

  2. Ty Berry Morins! Glad you stopped by!! :-), that does sound like an amazing salad I miss seeing him on TFN every night...SO far the Buttermilk Smothered Mushroom Pork Chops were the biggest hit, yummy!!

    I made it easy on myself this week the Mashed potatoes that were with Sunday's supper I baked so they had w newer twist and the rice I used on Monday's supper I am using on Wed and amping it up with salsa verde and sprinkle of turmeric (to make it yellow), and cumin with a splash of lime juice and cilantro at the end. The Greek inspired meal I am making on Thursday will help me on Sat and Friday's Italian night helps me on Sunday. This is so important as I have 3 major appointments 2 are out of town and will keep both my hubby and me occupied for the better part of the day....

    Glad u enjoyed my hard work, I am not sure my preschooler and toddler agree most dinner nights...but one day they will see the work and appreciate it!! :-)
