September Mini-Cooking Day

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. School started again, and life got crazy! Thank goodness for the month of cooking I did. Most days what to have for dinner consisted of figuring out which delicious thing to defrost from our freezer.

Needless to say, I could not get my act together to do my September cooking. Then a good friend decided she wanted in on this cooking gig. We decided to wait until the menu plan came out for October (which it did this morning! Yay!). I looked through the September recipes I was planning and stuck with only the recipes that I had ingredients in house to cook. Thus spawned my September Mini-Big Day, which is happening as I post.
