Ugh! Am I the only one who doesn't like making menus every month? I would rather clean the bathroom...well almost. I decided to try something new, hoping it would make the whole process easier. I made a list of 30 meals that I thought the family would like and that I could make a portion meat free. Then I found a great printable menu and picked 2 weeks worth of meal and put them on 2 of the menus. So far it is working out great! I can't wait to make and take a picture of tomorrows meal. Stay tuned! I will be getting more posts out soon, a lot of things came up this month that kept me from posting.

I haven't been posting in the last week because I really haven't cooked in the last week(good reason, eh?). I was in FL for a few days for my Grandmothers funeral and most of the food was brought in by friends and neighbors. This was my first day cooking from scratch and having it not be Spaghetti.
Here in MI, the weather has taken a turn and we are welcoming in fall. For me this means a few things. First, it means the weather cooling down. Second, it means that leaves changing(LOVE that!). Third, it means I can make soup again without melting while eating it!
Everyone loved this soup! I was surprised that even Logan and Estrella(my sweet "god-daughter") dug in with gusto.
Butternut Squash and Onion Soup
This made enough for about 10 to 12 servings.
