I am so excited that fall is finally here. The temperatures went from being in the triple digits to being nice and cool (today's high is 76). We turn off the A/C, open the windows and put the window fans up and enjoy the cooler temps. Fall also means time for nice hearty meals like chili, soups and stews as well as fall flavors like squash, sweet potatoes, honey crisp apples, and eventually pomegranates.
This week, I only did meal planning for one week because I didn't feel like going off base today and shopped on base at the commissary. I mentioned that Alyssa will be cooking one meal a week. We did switch her cooking day from Thursday to Wednesday so that she's not rushed on AWANA nights. I may start letting Ashleigh and Garrett have a cooking night as well, maybe on Mondays, to allow them to be in the kitchen a bit more than they already do (right now they make meals on occasion).
