Looking ahead

So, I copped out on dinner tonight, we were supposed to have Lemon Chicken, but I just ran out of time and energy! Britt and Gray had leftover Spaghetti and Meatballs, Haven happily ate leftover pulled pork and coleslaw, so at least they got a hearty dinner. Tomorrow I can stay home ALL DAY!!! I promised the kids pumpkin muffins since I just processed two big pumpkins, so I will bake those, two loaves of bread and make that Lemon Chicken. I am so excited that it will be a brisk fall day full of baking and snuggling on the couch! Em and I even planned ahead and brought our favorite soup home so we can indulge our addiction!

The fall CSA hauls have been really nice (that is where the two pumpkins came from). Today we received a butternut squash, which was peeled, seeded, cubed and frozen. My kids love roasted butternut squash, and I love butternut squash soup, so as much as I can pack in the freezer, the better! We also got some small, but decent tomatoes, ours here at home are dwindling as well, two huge bunches of broccoli, some bok choy, purple beans and some arugula. The arugula will become part of tomorrow nights dinner, the broccoli will be cleaned, blanched and frozen for future meals, soups, etc. The purple beans will also be cleaned, blanched and frozen for dinners.

I am off to finish my paper so I can do the dishes. Then I will roast a few batches of coffee beans to get ready for my baking day tomorrow. Gotta love fall!

Well, a great plan that was- No soup left, but I enjoyed my dinner. And so what if all I ate today was beef jerky and soup:)
