Weekend Recap, Menu Plan & Giveaway Winner

Nathan and I left Friday for our weekend camping trip in the Adirondacks.  It was so nice to get away for a few nights and soak in some fresh mountain air.  I have to admit, the air at night was a wee bit chillier than I prefer to sleep in, but we did pretty well by bringing along lots of layers and our electric blanket.  

We saw the start of some beautiful fall foliage, took a nice hike, went canoeing, ventured into town and saw a movie, ate ice cream and played at the local arcade.  Thank goodness for nice, long relaxing weekends away! :)  I'll post pictures later this week when I'm able to get them off of my camera.

This week's menu is fairly simple because I leave Thursday for a trip to Alabama.  I'll be gone through Monday, and this is the longest Nathan and I have been apart.  I'm really excited to see some friends and family, but it will definitely be hard to be away from him!

Here's what's on our menu . . .
Monday: Sticky Chicken in the Crock Pot w/ veggies 
Tuesday: Chicken Noodle Soup (with leftover chicken from Monday)
Wednesday: Lucy's Chili
The rest of the week, I've prepared a few meals ahead for Nathan and he'll be eating the leftovers from this week.
