Cook Fest

I am so sick of all the prepared foods we've been eating due to Nin's change in schedule, the upheaval with our truck being at the mechanic, and getting ready for vacation. I'm double sick of eating it after two weeks away and eating in restaurants. So, we went shopping late last night, and I'm going to try and get us back on track. I just put a loaf of pumpkin apple spice bread in the oven, then I'm making three meals worth of chicken parmigiana, macaroni and cheese, and pumpkin soup. One of each will stay out for this week's meals, the rest will go in the freezer in aluminum containers so Nin can just pop them in the oven before I get off work. The rest of the week will be what I have left in the freezer currently: baked potato soup, BBQ beef, and apple sausage (which will be cooked with potatoes and onions)

I'm hoping the spices form the bread and listening to Loreena McKennitt will put me in the mood to write tomorrow and the next day. I may not be able to finish my Halloween fic, but I'd love to get it mostly done.

It's a lovely Autumn day! October is always our nicest month -- fog free with actual sun!
