Week 59

At the Neil Diamond concert last month

September is in full swing.  I actually love this month.  Cool mornings, warm sunny afternoons, that smell that comes as Fall creeps in.  It is a beautiful time of year and as much as i lament the end of summer (which I truly do), September is a nice way to transition.
Dallin is back in school now and it has been quite a shock to be thrown back into the deep end.  Last week he had a block week course which means he takes a full semester course in 6 days.  It is brutal and cruel and academic overload but of course he breezed through it all.  That being said, I am glad there are only one of those a semester!  Now on to the regular work all day, coursework at night schedule.  Yipee!
The Temple is getting so close to being completed.  We booked our time today to go through for the tour and I cannot wait!  It is going to be gorgeous!
I got another 30lbs of peaches so this week I will be doing jam and Spicy Peach BBQ sauce.  Wish me luck :P

This week for dinner ....

Mexican food - chicken and pepper fajitas, homemade guac and chips, refried black beans (very garlicky ones - I accidentally added too much garlic and they were strong!) and a spinach salad.  Peach cobbler for dessert

Pasta with a pesto cream sauce, chicken and cherry tomatoes and some buttered peas on the side.  Dallin has class so we went easy

Back to school feast (this had to wait to accommodate Dal's schedule)- General Tao chicken drumsticks, pork dumplings, veggies and dip, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, and some boursin and baguette.  Just a mishmash of things really .....

Beef Stew over garlic mashed potatoes, green beans, roasted beets and a green salad

Pork Satay over brown rice, zucchini and carrots, spinach and mandarin salad

Hawaiian Chicken over coconut rice, corn on the cob, grilled zucchini

It looks like Dal might have a meeting in Calgary and then we will have Temple training that night (for volunteering at the new Temple) so we will probably go out to eat afterward :)  I need a night out!

Hope everyone has a great week and I would love to hear what you are cooking and eating these days!!!
