On Michaelmas Day ...
Monday pics ... and picadillo!

Menu Monday: October 5-11

Good Sunday evening, my friends!

I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend! It was very chilly here in New England - a taste of what's to come, I think. And boy, is our foliage turning - now that our temperatures have dropped!

Well, I wanted to post this evening while I had a few minutes, to share my meal plan for next week. Tonight we are having a revised "Italian" dinner in honor of St. Francis. (Stuffed peppers will wait until our college boy is home!) We are having some potato gnocchi, simple breaded chicken, romaine salad and - rather randomly - corn on the cob, since it's been sitting in our fridge since Friday's farm pickup. I was also able to get a box of our favorite Italian cookies from a local bakery - yum!

Ok, but enough about tonight - let's look at next week:

Enjoy your evening, my friends - I'm excited for a whole lotta PBS tonight! I will be back sometime tomorrow with a "Masterpiece Monday" post so we can talk about what we saw ...
