Monday: Buffalo Wild Wing Knock-off Spicy Garlic Chicken Salad (Happy Birthday to our friend Melanie!)
Tuesday: Farmer's Market Spaghetti Squash with meat sauce and Broccoli
Wednesday: Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork
Saturday: L.O. Smoked Chicken, Potatoes, Veggies
This weekend was not the weekend we made salsa, but I did pick quite a few to include in our Fall Beef Stew tonight. Combined with veggies from Saturday's market, it was perfect. So yummy on a cool fall night. It looks like Tuesday is going to be another warm day, 90°, but otherwise the fall weather looks like it's here to stay. Bring it on!

|We were birders for the day! Finches, Nuthatches, and other birds loved the giant feeders!|
