I didn’t share my menu plans in October, mainly because I was feeling a little exhausted as I prepared for the Columbus Half Marathon. I still stuck with our menu planning, but I just couldn’t muster the energy to share it with everyone. It’s a shame, because we had some killer awesome fall dishes over the past month. I love fall and winter foods, though I struggle with remembering to watch portion sizes, especially at the beginning of transition from summer foods to fall foods.
But yes, give me all the soups and the noodles and the warm baked dishes and ooey, gooey warm goodness.
Also give me all the meals at Papau and YiaYia’s house! I’m running the Pittsburgh 10 Miler on Sunday, so we’ll be at my parents’ house this weekend. My dad makes amazing pasta sauces, so I’m excited to carb load on The Farm on Saturday night and then eat dinner and treats again on Sunday night as well. We’re rocking some good soups this time too; the boys have been asking for tortellini soup since the weather cooled off. They’ll be thrilled!
Speaking of the boys and menu planning, I feel like the two little boys who live in this house think they’re super funny.
I did not serve Nasty Pee-Pee Potty Sandwiches on Sunday nor any day last month. I am also not serving “butt for ‘deessert'” as was written one day when I walked by the menu chalkboard in the hallway that leads into the kitchen from my office. Silly, silly boys. I don’t serve dessert. Joke’s on them!
