Happy Homemaker Monday

In the kitchen

In the garden

Welcome Monday!
Each week I share a few plans and join Sandra and a few others for a fun little party...


The Weather
Fall ahhhh!  I realize that Fall is my favorite time of the year here in Texas.  Don't get me wrong I love Texas but in Fall the weather is cool and crisp and mostly dry.  

We are in the 70's most days.  With a cold snap or two that doesn't last more than a day.  Ahhh.  Texas in Fall.  Nothing better. 

Right now I  am
Thinking of the week ahead and all the things I want/need to do.
I am realizing I need to shorten my work schedule.  I am just praying that we can work it out.  

On the menu
My favorite part of planning my week and sharing with you! 
Monday- Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potato's and Green Beans
Tuesday- Leftover Brisket, Beans, Cornbread, Slaw
Wednesday- Seafood Bisque and a crusty bread from a mix
Thursday- Hamburgers, fries etc.
Friday- Can I go out?

In the kitchen
A recipe to try one day.  This looks sooooo yummy!
Apricot Glazed Bacon Wrapped Cajun Pork Tenderloin - Maybe an idea for Thanksgiving.
