Menu Monday + Projects

I've really been working on keeping healthy and yummy foods around the house.  It was lovely have such a variety during the summer - berries, melons, corn, tomatoes and more.  I am excited for all the fall produce that should be hitting the farmers market shortly.  I have a list of tasty pumpkin goodies I can't wait to try which includes soups, stews, cookies, cake, bread and even a cinnamon roasted pumpkin.  Now I'm hungry.

This week we are having Veggie Calzone, Tomato & Mint Pasta, Honey Chipolte Chicken with Lime Quinoa, Creamy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Left-over Chicken Quesadillas, Crockpot Beef Stew with Irish Soda Bread.  Yep, hungrier now.  We've also been enjoying our afternoon teas when the kids get home from school.  A pot of tea, some fruit scones, and some grapes make a nice snack to hold us all over until dinner.

Saw a gorgeous mini calendar made with one of my favorite paper companies (Graphic 45) while doing a bit of blog hopping this morning.  What a great idea and super cute.  I'm going to add it to my idea notebook, might make some for the teachers at Christmas.  On my morning walks I've been collecting some items for an altered book that I have been itching to make.  I'm planning on creating a nature/bird piece using lots little stuff and an old bird house design book.  I've also been working on prepping some backgrounds to have on hand and to use up some leftover paints and paper scraps.
