Menu Plan Monday - 2015 Week 42

Weekly Meal Planning Ideas - Real Food for Real Families

Welcome back to another weekly meal plan post. Each Monday, I share my dinner intentions for the week with you. You will find mostly real foods here for real families. We are not gourmets or fast food junkies but rather somewhere in between, and I try to put at least four home-cooked meals on the table each week. My kids are also sort of picky, and my husband and I enjoy good food. It can be a real challenge!

This week, we encounter one of my most difficult challenges, the "just back from being away week." I got in from Atlanta early last evening, and since John doesn't drive, our weekend errand trip didn't happen. Today is also my youngest's birthday, and I need to prep for a family celebration tonight, since I was away!

5 Trader Joe's Pumpkin Products to Put in Your Cart Right Now

My Favorite Trader Joe's Pumpkin Picks for Fall

Are you a Trader Joe's Shopper? I am spoiled and have not one, but two Trader Joe's close-by my home, and it's where I do a good bit of my shopping for my weekly meal plans. I can always count on them for innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting food. You still have to read labels, but I love the variety of foods with no added sugar or preservatives. It really helps with my goals to eat healthier.

Because they keep a lower inventory to help keep prices lower, Trader Joe's stocks Seasonal Items, and right now it's all about that Pumpkin. Every aisle has pumpkin on it in some form.

A First Glimpse at Fall from Aventura Clothing

Welcome back to another weekly fashion post. Each week, I like to share some of my own looks with you, to inspire you to reach into your own closet and find something fabulous to wear! The weather around here finally feels like fall, and I couldn't be happier! Fall fashions are my favorite, and when I got the Ambassador Look Book for Fall from Aventura Clothing, I squealed out loud.

The textures, the colors, the layers - it's all so awesome!! And now that the temperatures have taken a dip, I can pull out my fabulous selections and give them a test drive. This past weekend, I picked out a khaki skirt and a peasant blouse for a shopping trip with my teen. I really pushed my fashion envelope and paired riding boots with a pair of boot socks.
