Don't worry that the storm will keep us from posting our last couple of Halloween posts....I've already got them scheduled and ready to go!
If you're interested to hear how we weather the storm, be sure to check out our Facebook page where I will update when the storm is gone and the power is back on!
Potato Soup with added chicken Italian sausage and chopped spinach--we added them just to use up a couple more items in our fridge, but ended up loving the new taste!
enough homemade bread to last the week--I froze what we're not using today or tomorrow
blueberry spinach smoothie-- my family LOVES this healthy smoothie!
Halloween treats made in advance for later this week:
see here to see all of our Halloween recipes in one place
Halloween Pretzel Bites--we are addicted to these yummy salty-sweet treats!
Monday-- (likely won't have power)
Chicken Pasta Salad (cooked the noodles today, so all I have to do tomorrow is chop the veggies and make the dressing)--this is one of our favorite meals, which is a good thing, since I think my kids will need all the comfort food they can get tomorrow!
Tuesday-- (likely won't have power)
Grilled honey-lime chicken sandwiches--I hope it won't be too stormy still to grill. My family loves these sandwiches!
Apple-Pear Salad-- Even with the power out, I'm assuming my cheese will still be good. If not, I'll just leave it out. I plan on using store-bought dressing just to use it up.
Wednesday-- (possibly won't have power)
Best Grilled Chicken Fajitas Ever--I've got the chicken in the freezer, so it should still be fine on Wednesday as long as we don't open it too often.
"Bloody" Raspberry-Grape Punch--if the sorbet is soft, it won't matter!
Thursday-- (really, really hoping we'll have power by Thursday...otherwise we'll just grill hot dogs and hamburgers we've got in the freezer)
Hearty quinoa and corn chowder (new recipe)
pizza casserole-- a fun variation on our normal Friday night pizza
Meatball Stroganoff in a Crockpot-- we need a crockpot meal for this busy day
Honey-Lime Enchiladas (made with pork instead of chicken)--one of our very favorite meals ever, I love throwing the pork in the crockpot before church then throwing it all together quickly afterward! Yum!
Jack-o-lantern pumpkin cheesecake-- a little late, but I'll bake this as a belated treat for my daughter's birthday on Halloween.
