Is it really the last week of October? I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that I will be staring into the face of November next week. Saying goodbye to October is bittersweet because there were so many great moments to savor but I'm equally excited about what November has to offer. Lots more family time and memories to be made.
My parents were here for a few days last week which was so great. We don't get the chance to spend as much time together as we would like so it's always a treat to have them spend the weekend with us. We all value the time that we get to hang out together because it doesn't happen very often.
I don't know about you but when I have company for the weekend, I tend to do more cooking which means that we have even more leftovers than usual at our house after everyone goes home. With that being said - it's leftover week at the Davis house.
Weekly Menu for 10/24-10/30
Monday - Chicken Poblano Tortilla Soup
This is a recipe that I found in Cooking Light magazine. I've had it for months and I've been waiting on cooler Fall weather to make it.
Tuesday - Cedar Planked Shrimp
Sound familiar. Yes, this WAS on last weeks menu but well, life happened and the shrimp didn't. Giving this yummy recipe another shot this week.
Wednesday - Pulled Pork Sandwiches
We had the most delicious Cubano Sandwiches last weekend and I've got lots of leftover pork so it's pork sandwiches for us this week.
Thursday - Glazed Roast Chicken
I'm firing up the Big Green Egg to roast a whole chicken for dinner.
Friday - Chicken Ranch Broccoli Calzones
Using up the leftover chicken from yesterday's roast chicken. Friday nights dinners have to be flexible because I just never know what plans my family will make which makes these calzones perfect. Totally packable and totally delicious.
Saturday - Date night
Courtney has dinner plans so it's just the two of us for dinner tonight - sounds like the perfect opportunity for a date night. Don't you think?
Sunday - Pumpkin Pecan Pancakes
I simply cannot let Fall slip away without having pumpkin pancakes at least once. My family prefers plain pancakes but I LOVE these Fall inspired pancakes with warm maple syrup.
Halloween is right around the corner and we have our adorable jack o'lantern ready to go. Happy owl-o-ween.
