It is officially fall in my kitchen and I hope you are ready for some PURE comfort food recipes, because I have some good ones lined up!
You know last week, how I was talking about how productive I have been lately? Well, I guess I was asking for it, but this past week I feel like I got NOTHING done.
My boys had physicals on Monday, which resulted in a super cranky and feverish 4 year old (from his vaccines). My 10 year old had a routine appointment with his cardiologist on Wednesday and then we had an unexpected trip to the ENT on Thursday with Lucas (the cranky 4 year old) due to some nosebleeds. (don't worry he is fine, turns out he is just a nose picker 🙂 )
To top all of this off, we had a major plumbing malfunction, that involved our washing machine causing our basement toilet to over flow 🤷♀️. I didn't even know that was possible but two visits from a plumber, $500, and a lot of QT spent with the wet vac tell me it is.
All this just goes to show - never be too confident that you have you stuff together, because the universe is always ready to show you who is boss.
I only got ONE cookbook project completed this week, although it's a REALLY good one! I am now trying to cram a bunch into this weekend. Luckily it's too hot to step foot outside, so there's that.
This weeks menu
This week the kids and my husband will be home on Monday due to Labor Day, but I have to work (any other healthcare workers feel my pain?) We never really do much for Labor Day, so you won't find any burgers on this weeks menu.
Other then that the week is pretty standard. Here are the links for all the recipes I will be using this week:
- Foolproof Crispy Chicken Thighs
- Chicken, Broccoli and "Rice" Casserole

That's it! Now, Here's to a more productive week, right?!?
