What I'm Reading This Week #43

Heidi ho y'all!  We've made it to the end of another week so that's something to celebrate.  (Unless you have to work, then, sorry.)    

I remembered to take a few pics this week of the dinners even though they weren't super fancy.

Monday we made Scallop Scampi over lentil pasta with roasted broccoli:

Tuesday we smelled Chinese food in the distance on our walk around the hood so I changed dinner and we had General Tso's Chicken over cauliflower rice:

Wednesday was a low key night so we had pepperoni and veggie Caulipower pizza

Last night was Passion Fruit glazed Orange Roughy with Sweet Potato Gnocchi (which I've been craving like mad) and garlic peas.

Let's see what scintillating topics I've been peeping aka:

22 Ways to Stop Feeling Guilty All the Time  (Pack yer bags, we're going on a guilt trip!)

10 Small Habits That Have A Huge Return On Life  (There's one I think is a crock but thinking about the rest of 'em.)

What Can You Do with Leftover Pumpkin Puree?  (I add it to oatmeal with some coconut sugar and chia seeds.  Yum!)

12 DIY Holders That'll Make You Actually Want To Display Your Holiday Cards  (Yes, it's time for holiday DIY's so you can actually enjoy them!  I do #4 with a birch branch.)

10 Pine Cone Ornaments Your Christmas Tree Didn't Know It Was Missing  (Um, I think I'm doing slide 8 and finishing with slide one.  So pretty!)

You Should Be Cutting Your Jack-o'-Lantern Lids From the Bottom, Not the Top  (Makes sense!)

Say goodbye to ALL Peanuts specials  (Lucy was right, it IS run by a syndicate.  We are beyond ticked because we refuse to use any crapple products.  The multi-pack DVD's have sold out upon the announcement (and prices for available ones TRIPLED.  You can still get the separate DVD's for now.  It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown , Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and of course A Charlie Brown Christmas.  Even buying all three of those separately would be $36 and that's still $14 less than you would have spent for the box set before they jacked up the prices.)


The Mr is taking a hooky day today and we're going to his hometown.  There's a place that has our coveted MI Northern Spy apples ("spies are for pies!") and my apple pie has been requested for drop off for Thanksgiving.  So we're thinking of getting there when they open before nutball crowds we've been encountering on drive by's kick in for the day.  

Any tomfoolery planned for the weekend?
