Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

I have been making these Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins for some time now, and I am not sure why I have not shared this recipe with you all yet!  Regardless, this is currently our favorite recipe for blueberry muffins, no matter what time of year.  During the summer, we use fresh blueberries.  In the winter, we use frozen blueberries, and they are still delicious.  I hope that you will enjoy this blueberry muffin recipe as much as we do!

We tried the chicken enchiladas last week, and they were OK.  I’m still searching for “that amazing recipe” when it comes to enchiladas.  Do you all have any that you love?

I’m not trying anything new this week, as we’re trying to eat up a few things around the house before the holidays!  My favorite holidays are those full of food, family, and fun, so I am very excited for next week :)

Dinners
Chicken Noodle Soup, Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins (recipe coming soon!)
Bierocks (from the freezer)
Chili Mac, cornbread
Dad’s choice, while mom is in class ;)
Pizza (maybe homemade, maybe takeout)
Leftovers
Dinner out with friends (BBQ!)

Italian Sausage Soup has a delicious, savory flavor that is sure to warm your home on any chilly day!  You can also make this soup in the slow cooker, which is great if you have got some time to cook, but you’re not ready to eat just yet.

This week we are only trying one new recipe, but I am bound and determined to share a new soup recipe with you all :)  In the midst of all of life’s busyness, I’m trying to seek more margin and rest in my life.  One of the good things about this is that I have realized that I find rest and margin through cooking!  Maybe that will mean I can get back to sharing new recipes more often…

Dinners
Italian Sausage Soup (recipe coming soon!), garlic bread
Louisiana Cajun Shrimp, french fries, peas
Chicken Verde Enchiladas (new recipe to us), chips & salsa, corn

Weekly Menu Plan, Oct 19 – Oct 25

My menu plan last week was totally thrown off course last week.  I was sick on Tuesday, so I didn’t make dinner that night or for Wednesday night  (I have a class on Wednesday night and usually make Wednesday night’s dinner on Tuesday night so the family has a meal ready to go).  The good news is that it was a one-day bug, so I was pretty much back to normal by Wednesday afternoon.  The other good news is that my husband totally took care of everything in my absence from the kitchen and no one went hungry ;)

We’re also redoing the plumbing in our basement, which has been a major ordeal.  There was a week a month or so ago that I did not have a functional kitchen sink or dishwasher… Talk about never taking those for granted again!  I was only cut off from using the sink/dishwasher for a few hours this weekend, and I think it will be the last time until we get to our kitchen renovation.

Dinners
Simple Jambalaya, cornbread muffins
Chicken & Mushroom Marsala
Cheesy Beans & Rice, tortilla chips
Butternut Squash & Apple Soup, bread
Enchiladas, corn
Cheesy Potato Soup with Bacon
Dinner out (or maybe leftovers)

Thank you for the suggestions of what I could make next for the blog.  I have started brainstorming to see if there’s any recipes that I could share with you all sometime soon!  I don’t want many more weeks to go by without sharing more recipes with you, so I will make it a priority to get something made and photographed to share.

In other news… It has been so chilly and rainy lately– soup weather, for sure!  I definitely want to start making more hearty meals. And I feel like I can turn on my oven again without causing the air conditioner to run for hours :) I didn’t get to the new soup recipe last week, so maybe I can get to it this week and let you know what we thought!

Dinners
Simple Jambalaya
Sweet & Spicy Tilapia, steamed broccoli, rice
Wild Rice Soup (new recipe to us – will probably add chicken), sourdough bread
Chili and Chicken Noodle Soup (we are hosting our small group)
Spaghetti, garlic & cheese biscuits, corn
Chicken Pot Pie
Leftovers (or a freezer meal)

Other Recipes
Glazed Pumpkin Bread

I heard a joke.  I hope you appreciate it!

What’s green and sings? (answer later)…

This week, it’s going to be a little more crazy than usual, so I hope I can keep up with it!  I’m in serious need of some inspiration to write a new recipe post… Do you have any suggestions for a type of recipe that you’d like to see?  Main dish?  Dessert?

Dinners
Shepherd’s Pie
Crispy Quinoa Bake
Corned beef & cabbage
Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes (new recipe to us)
Wild Rice Soup (new recipe to us – will probably add chicken), sourdough bread
Pizza (again :) )
Leftovers

And here’s the answer to the joke: Elvis Parsley ;)
