Meal Plan for the Week of October 31, 2011

Our trees are shedding leaves like crazy here in the northeast, and the peak of fall foliage has passed. To help me get over the loss of warm sunny days, I guess I need to remind myself of the fun of fires in the fireplace, hot cocoa, snuggling under a blanket on the couch, and the beauty of falling snow.
Since it’s Halloween here, I thought I’d show a couple of pictures from Halloweens’ past.
