Gearing up for Sukkot this week, "we" (i.e. my husband) was very busy building a Sukkah in the backyard. Here's a picture (three trips to Home Depot later) of the frame, a few lights, and Miss D dancing underneath:
I trimmed a bunch of trees/bushes yesterday to drape on top, but now we just need some "walls". I'm thinking a trip to Big Lots is in order for the day. Unfortunately (and fortunately), rain is in the forecast. We desperately need it. We've had such a long dry spell now, but what timing, huh? I'm hoping by the end of the week we can eat some dinners outside. We'll just have to wait and see. I will post progress pictures later.
Anyway, the menu plan (so far):
Monday - Breakfast for dinner: buttermilk waffles and leftovers from our Breaking the Fast meal, fruit smoothies
Tuesday - Pasta with red sauce, garlic bread, salad
Wednesday - Chicken burgers, grilled sweet potato wedges, pumpkin apple butter pie. I'm going to try to make it in a slab-pie fashion, rather than a traditional pie plate.
Thursday - Homemade pizza (maybe on the grill?)
Friday - Roasted Chicken, veggies, Challah
