Are you guys all ready for the little scary people to come and want your candy? I am. I did not wait until the last minute, I bought all of our candy Fri night. Now lets just honestly hope that we don't eat it all before Halloween. Don't laugh, I know you have done it before too!
Anyway. We are trying to eat a little more healthy and a little more budget friendly of course. So I went to BJ's Warehouse Club on Sat with my little fam. I told myself: "Self" if we are going to do this we must only buy our meat and salad there today. "self" listened. We did good. We got a great price on chicken breast, fresh salmon and sweet potatoes. Do you guys shop at big warehouse stores? Do you find it helps with your budget? Which one do you frequent most? Let me know as we consider buying a membership. We have been members before at diff clubs, but we always were a little scared of the scenario: you just can't get out of there without spending $250. And then of course you just have to go the grocery store to get some stuff. Anyway here is my menu for the week. Pretty basic, but hopefully pretty yum. Take care. And stay tuned as I have a new name for my blog coming soon.
Monday: Salmon with brown rice and a salad
Tuesday: Hubby is gone: Crescent roll somethings.......;)
Wednesday: Friends coming over: Pizza for the kids and Salads for the adults
Thursday: Chicken with sweet potatoes and salad
Friday: Enchilada Casserole
Sat: Chicken with corn and salad
Sunday: Salmon with sweet potatoes and of course salad!
If you have any great recipes for healthy salmon or chicken please let me know.

2 cans of refrigerated crescent rolls
2-3 apples, I used 3 diff apples to mix up the texture and taste
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
1 cup of Mountain Dew, yep that is right.
Peel and thinly slice apples. Unroll crescent rolls and roll inside 3 pieces of thin apples, using the diff kinds. Place in a greased 9x13 pan, can crowd if needed. Melt butter and add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour over each crescent. Now pour over your Mountain Dew. Put in the oven at 350 for about 25-30 minutes. I served these at room temp and they were great. I also for my church made them smaller sized by cutting the crescent rolls in 1/2 and then rolling up the apples. Seemed to be the perfect size when you are feeding a large crowd. Hope you enjoy.

Here I am again. Don't worry about the look of the blog, I am just fiddling around. I am trying to make it suit me better. I also am trying to come up with a catchy name for the blog. Any ideas? If so please let me know. This week is going to be all about family favorites. Here goes:
Grandma's Sloppy Joe's! Yummy!
Pork Chops with Gnocchi
Chicken and Rice
Jeannie's Chicken and Rice Casserole
Very easy meals and some comfort foods make a good week for me. Roman has started selling cub scout popcorn and Caitlin starts selling girl scout cookies tonight . Yikes! Tomorrow starts a ladies bible study so I am making a treat to bring there. Plus, I am trying to add in canning this week. Really hoping that I can get that done and over with so I won't worry about it anymore. Easy and yummy foods that I know my family will eat is sometimes the best way to go when you are crunched on time. Hoping you all have a blessed week.
