Wow…last week was crazy! But we survived and it was actually a lot of fun. I had Red Ribbon Week, which was a success, and there was all the excitement of Halloween, which was a blast! I'll post about that yummy orange fudge later this week.

This was our first year of real trick-or-treating because our old house always had tons of trick-or-treat traffic and X loved handing out candy to everyone. This year we only have about 10 kids in our cul-de-sac, so everyone trick-or-treats in the community behind us. Xavier the Green Ninja (he made us call him that all night!) ran into half his class and trick-or-treated with a group of friends the whole night. He declared it the best Halloween ever! J
|Laddie & Xavier's favorite Halloween decoration!|
This week’s menu doesn’t start until Tuesday night because we had our end-of-the-season soccer party last night at a pizza place. The kids had a blast but X woke up not feeling well this morning and had to stay home sick. L I’m making a batch of chicken noodle soup this afternoon for him to have the next couple days. As for Laddie and I, this is what we’re having this week. . .
Tuesday: Slow-Cooker ItalianPork Roast/polenta/roasted broccoli
I’m going to post the pork roast recipe later this week. I’m using up a bunch of leftover stuff from last week, including mushrooms, tomatoes, broth, and crossing my fingers it comes out like I’m envisioning.
Thursday: Crispy Parmesan FishSticks w/ marinara dipping sauce/buttered noodles/garlicky spaghetti squash
Hopefully X-man is feeling better at this point so he can eat one of his favorite meals.
Friday: Crispy Beef Tacos w/ all the fixings/cilantro-lime rice/calabacitas
Saturday: X-man’s classmate’s Birthday Party
We have been invited to a birthday party at one of X’s favorite classmates’ house. He’s really excited and we get along great with the parents, so this should be a lot of fun.
Sunday: San Diego Chargers vs Denver Broncos!
I’m not sure what we’re doing yet, but I do know we are watching this game with Xavier’s soccer coach and her family as well as his soccer assistant coach’s family. They are hardcore Chargers fans and BDL is a hardcore Broncos fan, so this will be a lot of fun. We just don’t know if we’re hosting or coach is hosting. . .we’ll probably flip a coin. ;-)
