Well Hello again, Mama Momtourage readers! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. In case you didn’t catch last Monday’s Post my name is Megan and last year I started a Facebook page, Crocktober. (Don’t forget to “like” her page for daily updates!) I have been going crazy with my crock pot and I am here to share with you my favorite recipe from the past week.
Hands down best recipe of the week was……Chicken Ranch Wraps
I will be celebrating my birthday this weekend. I don’t have anything exciting planned… I will have a family dinner that will include Corti’s Ravs and homemade cake and vanilla ice cream from my fave ice cream shop. Visiting friends, having some family time, a soccer game. That’s about it. I opted to wait to celebrate with friends for a little while.
This is a crazy busy month!!!! With Halloween parties, fall festivals, birthday parties, trips to the pumpkin patch, and the list goes on… It’s definitely time to start thinking about Halloween costumes. Chances are your little girl wants to be Anna or Elsa and your son wants to be a super hero, a Ninja Turtle, or a Transformer. This list is kinda off the wall and outta the box, most are handmade and all are pretty quirky… Just the way I like it.
A few weeks ago, I was having brunch with some girlfriends I’ve known for a very very long time. At some point, we all exposed our worst fears and they were oddly similar. These concerns had been wearing on each of us for some time and just happened to come to the surface.
I was having a conversation with a neighbor over the weekend about crockpot meals. (Yes, my life really is THAT exciting.) She brought up a very valid point, she said that her main problem with using the crockpot is that the meals always home out… one dimensional. Not necessarily from a flavor aspect, but the texture. I totally agree with this. There are some dishes that are supposed to be this way: soups for one. But even then, you don’t want the noodles or whatever other starch or grain you are using to come out too mushy. The answer is going to really let down a lot of people. You can’t throw all the ingredients in the crockpot in the morning and expect it to be completely finished eight hours later. No, you can’t. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons!! I loved everything about this dish. Here is my post form last week:
There’s a spooky surprise hiding in my fall flower arrangement. You can see more here of my decor from last year here.
I’m still fine-tuning my Halloween decor. It’s been up since 10/1 per Lou’s
demand request. But I’ve bought a few new things and I’ve been moving things around so they don’t look the same as last year.
Here’s a sneak peek of the little Rinos in front of a Halloween gallery wall I’ve been working on. It’s getting there… I just need a few more things to tweak here and there. That’s the same story for the rest of the decor. I always feel like I have to live with things for a few weeks before they are just right. By that time, I have to switch to TGivs decor. Ha!
Last year, every week in October a different mama showcased her fab Halloween decor. Here’s a look back at their spooky, adorable, and sometimes scary decor. If you are interested in giving us a look at your spooktacular abode email me!
