Menu Plan Monday

Fall is here folks! Temps are cooling down for the most part. This really makes me want to make soups and chili. It took a lot for me to remember during my menu planning that Charleston won't be in the soup and chili state of mind for a while now. I am cooking more substantial meals though. I'm discovering many of them on Pinterest. Have you been pinning? Do you love it as much as I do? I cannot get enough. If you haven't tried Pinterest and you'd like an invitation, let me know, I'll send you one! If you are on and you'd like to follow my pins, you can find me here.

Monday: Spaghetti with Sauteed Chicken and Grape Tomatoes

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Beef Brisket with Beer
Brown Sugar Baked Acorn Squash

Wednesday: Zucchini Black Bean and Rice Skillet

Thursday: Lasagna Roll-ups
Zucchini Fries

Friday: Vegetable and Chickpea Curry
Cous Cous

Saturday: Clean Out Refrigerator Night

Contest on my Facebook Page

I've been having loads of fun creating rings and bracelets out of buttons. Mostly, I use vintage buttons but always, I make one-of-a-kind creations. Pieces none of your friends have. Totally original. I sell them mostly at local shows here in Mt Pleasant, SC. Although I have an Esty shop, I am considering going Facebook only. I invite you to check out my collection on Facebook here. I also invite you to Like my page. Once I reach 100 fans, I will be rewarding one lucky person with a ricepuddin' original signature piece (featured here.) Share it with your friends!

Sunday's Something to Ponder

"The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're alive."

I hope we all take the history of today and realize just how important this is. You never know what a day may bring. When it may be someone's last. When it will be too late.

Menu Plan Monday

School is in full swing. My preschool job is starting again. The Princess is cheering this season. Somehow, I am the coach! Not-too-big-to-say-he-loves-me is playing Lacrosse. And, Man-Cub is back at  Cross Country... running every day. I need my menu plan. Cannot survive without it. It's the stuff that keeps me sane.
