Weekly Menu for 10-29-2012

Unfortunately Hubby didn’t make it home last week like I was hoping. On the bright side, he should be home tonight, and he’ll be home for Halloween this year. It’s been at least a few years since he’s actually been home on Halloween, the kids are super excited. Since he didn’t make it home last week, I ended up not making some of the items I had planned for dinner. Opting instead to save them for when he gets home.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

A couple days ago I had the fun task of cleaning out 3 large pumpkins. They were going to be carved at my son’s cub scouts pack meeting activity. Usually I just throw everything inside the pumpkins away, but this year I decided to keep the pumpkin seeds and try roasting them. I had never before tried roasting pumpkin seeds, and had no idea how one does it. So I googled some instructions, and was surprised at how simple it was to do.

Using Vinegar to Remove Odor from Jars.

These last couple of months I've been saving jars to use for some of the cool project ideas I've seen on Pinterest. There are so many cute ways to use jars other than just storing food. Instead of going out and buying mason jars I've been trying to save some of my spaghetti sauce and salsa jars as well as any other jars that look cool. I try to take the more frugal approach to my projects to help save money as well as cut down on waste.

Weekly Menu for 10-22-2012

As I sit here planning out my grocery list for the week, I think I’m going to revisit some old favorites for our menu this week. I wish I knew for sure when hubby might get home, because I would like to make his favorite recipe as a belated birthday gift. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see which way the loads will fall.

Outdoor Halloween Decorating

My kids and I have been having a lot of fun getting our house ready for Halloween. This is one of my favorite times of the year to decorate. I love the fall colors, and I have this crazy obsession with skulls and skeletons….Don’t ask me why. Lol

DIY Halloween Ghost Decoration

I saw this cute idea floating around on Pinterest by Simply Designing and thought I’d give it a try. I did mine a little bit different from hers, but both ways look really cute. I’m really happy with how it turned out. They are fun, and simple to make.

No Soliciting sign, and the start of fall decorating.

My kids and I are getting geared up for some Halloween and fall decorating. I had actually made this no soliciting sign in the spring, but wasn’t happy with the pot it was in. Just last week I bought a new pot, and the fall leaves at Walmart, and now I’m very pleased with the presentation.

Simple Meatloaf with BBQ Sauce

This is one of my favorite, easy to make, meatloaf recipes. I love the flavor the barbeque sauce gives it. This is one of the recipes my children love.

Weekly Menu for 10-1-2012

Sorry I didn’t get a chance to post a weekly menu last week. My dear, sweet hubby was home from trucking, and as far as meals went, I kind of flew by the seat of my pants. I hate it when I do that, but it was nice to get the chance to eat out for a change. I typically don’t go out to eat when he’s gone, unless it’s the occasional pizza order, or celebrating one of our children’s birthdays.
