Menu Plan Monday #59

Two weeks ago we had guests. We followed my meal plan pretty close. I was surprised they didn't want to eat out more, but they were super happy having most meals here at home.

This past week, after they left I didn't really meal plan. We just did super simple easy, mostly leftovers or grilled cheese. I was so tired from hosting and staying up late that we just relaxed and recovered this past week. We all were fighting off colds too. Thank goodness for Elderberry Syrup, that stuff was a miracle worker!

Now, this weekend was Halloween. Halloween isn't formally celebrated here but the kiddo went to Fright Night a Wailabi World so the hubby and I stayed in, rented a movie and made a candlelight dinner. Couch snuggles are the best.

Saturday was a gorgeous day so we hopped on our bikes and took a ride through our neighborhood. We had amazing sky color!

Sunday of course was cheerleading. I didn't get any photos as I was busy finishing The Book Thief, but they were busy working on their routine for the upcoming competitive season. The routine is certainly looking good!!!

After that I hurried home to go grocery shopping the weather looks like it is taking a a turn for the worse so I wanted to be prepared. I saw this along the way and had to take a photo:

We then hurried home to catch football and bake up some pizza and wings. So much deliciousness.
