What's cooking this week?

It's a short week in the meal planning department because of the holiday, but I'm not cutting any corners. Starting next week I will be a full time working Mommy. I figured this might be my last chance (at least for a little bit while I adjust) where I could get a little fancy. During a late night feeding about two months ago, I came up with a risotto recipe I've been dying to try out. Risotto is easy but very time consuming. Ella is a little too needy to be stirring risotto constantly. I'm going to attempt it today since Daddy is home. We had a very cranky day with her yesterday, so hopefully today is a little better. My fingers are crossed!
Sunday: Mushroom Risotto with Chicken
Monday: Crock Pot Black Bean Soup
Tuesday: Pomodoro Pasta
Wednesday: Sweet Potatoes (prepare for Thanksgiving)

Ella is so happy to have her Daddy home from Chicago, I just know it! They have been getting lots of snuggles in to make up for lost time! Yesterday they watched Doctor Who together. Stephen kept calling her his little companion....it was adorable! We didn't quite get to any Christmas decorations, not even close. Maybe later? We do things according to Ella's schedule these days. I hope to at least get the tree up!


We are leaving Wednesday evening for South Florida. I can't wait to watch the parade with my girl on Thursday morning! This will be our first big excursion with her, it should be interesting! As long as she doesn't scream for the entire 4 hour drive I'll consider it a win!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
