Menu Plan Monday - October 24 - 30

>> Monday, October 26, 2009

This coming Saturday is Halloween!  Yay!  I love Halloween, okay let's face it I love any holiday.  Any excuse to do something fun and different is a good excuse in my books.  So this week the kids and I will be making caramel apples, roasting pumpkin seeds, they have asked for more caramel corn, and I will also be making special Halloween cake pops for Bean to take to school on Friday. Look for a post about those on Thursday sometime.

On Friday we will be doing our traditional All Hallow's Eve supper.  Every year I make something gross, well it doesn't taste gross but the name usually is, for supper on the night before Halloween.  Halloween evening is just too busy running around getting costumes on and going to the mall for Trick-or-Treat, pop home for a quick bite to eat, then we head out into the neighborhood for some more Trick-or-Treating.  Do you do anything fun or extra special for Halloween?

How fun for your family that you love making fun meals.
I used to make Valentine heart pancakes when our son was growing up.
Looks like you have a yummy week planned.
Have a great Halloween or Harvest Festival!

Wow! What an awesome menu plan, it looks like a lot of work goes into it. Thanks! I love the toddler meals and snack ideas. I am in a rut with meals for my 2 year old so it's nice to have some new ideas. :)
