Menu Plan Monday - October 10 - 16

>> Monday, October 12, 2009

Happy Thanksgiving too all of my Canadian Friends! :)  I hope that you are enjoying the long weekend.  I am loving it.  It's been a very nice weekend, having the family home & just doing a lot of enjoying one another.  Today I'll be preparing our Thanksgiving meal and I'll also be preparing a meal for friends that had a baby last week and are just coming home today.  Needless to say it's going to be a busy day in the kitchen for me. :)

Yesterday I made these sorta healthy mini M&M oatmeal cookies. I was hoping that they would be more like another recipe I used to make, they weren't, but the kids sure are enjoying them.  I guess that's all that really matters right? You can find the recipe for them on my recipe site.

Just found your site from Menu Plan Monday. I love, love, love the toddler menu! As a mom of a super picky 2 year old, I always love to see what other moms are feeding their children. The recipe cards are great too, and I can't wait to sit down and look through your recipe site. Have a great week!
