Meal Planning

Sunday: Red Beans and Rice
Monday: Jambalaya 
Tuesday: Fried Rice
Wednesday:Spaghetti with meatball 
Thursday: Gumbo with shrimp/chicken and lots of okra 

Usually the weekend we would go out to eat ...I try to plan 5 meals a week 
I would prep all veggies and wash all fruits and cook up most meats and separate by meals..

For this week ..what I did was cooked up my chicken and packed up the chicken stock for the gumbo. I then would sliced up the chicken for the jambalaya. 
Cut up all my bell pepper/onions/celery for my TRINITY to be used in the red beans n rice/jambalaya/ gumbo
Diced up all garlic

Used the onion in my fried rice and spaghetti I usually cut up about 4 large onions...since I knew I would used it in all my meals for this week. 

Cook up my sausage...since I will be using that in my red beans/jambalaya/gumbo ( I cooked up a whole large package)

Halloween Night w/ my 4 lil trick a treaters

We went to a friends house at 5:00 pm then went trick or treating around her neighborhood first then went back to our neighborhood and trick or treat with some of our friends...This yr I really enjoyed seeing the kids...especially Chloe...she went up to every house and said " Happy Halloween...trick or treat..then thank them for her lil loot"  it was also very impressive to watch her take ONLY 1 CANDY from the baskets/bucket etc...she was amazed by all the different decorations n costume that was out there...
I think they also had a great time selecting which costume to wear next...Chloe was ..Snow White...Princess Aurora..and Tinkerbell...she LOVED dressing up in a different Princess for each occasion...What will THEY choose  next yr????

Master Closet--DONE

My closet usually look like this everyday but I took this chance to go thru what I didnt or havent worn in a few years and PURGE and DONATE....I did changed out the velvet hangers for the white plastic...I found that the velvet ones don't hold up as well and they cost alot more $$.
