November. A new month that I hope is filled with a lot more happiness and joy than October. I need it! It should be good, though. First of all, there’s Thanksgiving — my favorite holiday! Originally we had planned to go to Raleigh, but with the way things have transpired we’ll be staying here in New York. That’s fine. Actually, it’s probably for the best. Things always do work out that way don’t they? Even when you don’t think so at first. Also, my niece will be born 😀 Her due date is next Tuesday. I’m super excited to be a ciocia (that’s “aunt” in Polish and the title I’m going with). There’s also Black Friday sales and Christmas crafts and decorating and hopefully a lot more relaxing in general. Yes, November should be good.
This week is pretty laid back. My parents are visiting over the weekend and there are a couple activities for the kids, but generally nothing that is a big deal. So with that, here’s my menu plan:
Sun: rotisserie chicken, au gratin potatoes, carrots
Mon: burgers, chicken soup, tater tots, steamed broccoli
Tue: leftovers or sandwiches
Wed: cube steak stroganoff over noodles
Thur: spiced parsnip soup, cobb-ish salad
Fri: chicken marsala (per mom’s request), pasta, salad
Sat: Red Lobster (because my dad is Red Lobster deprived)
