Cooking: Week Ending 10.31

Halloween is finally here. We love Halloween and will fill fun bags for the elderly and bake some cookies. I also have been working on the last bedroom that needs to be remodeled before the end of the year. Stripping wallpaper and cleaning the bedroom... all week.

The dogs are really excited for Halloween... their costumes are ready and now I am working on my costume! Very exciting!! I will share pictures. 

So the menu will be fun and easy....
