Where did September go? Seriously, it flew by for our family. And looking at the calendar, it appears October is going to be a very eventful, but fun month for us, too. This coming Sunday, we are hosting Pie with the Pastors at our home, along with the 7th Annual Cajun Food & Candy on Halloween. For this event, we make a big stock pot of Chicken and Sausage Gumbo or Jambalaya and serve it up to friends before Jon takes the kids out for trick-or-treating.
This month’s meal plan was heavily influenced by my kids. Today, we planned it over lunch. They really like to cook, and got inspired after watching a few episodes of a kids’ cooking challenge. I greatly appreciate their interest in cooking. However, we are continue to work on the cleaning up afterwards! 🙂
