Menu Plan Monday #26: It's been a while!

Well Hello Blogland! It has been soooooooooo long since I have done a Menu Plan Monday Post! I am so glad to be back on the wagon!

So, this weekend we didn't do a whole heck of a lot, but here's a small collection:

The Happy Haunting sign can be found in my new Etsy Shop!!!! I am super excited, go over and "favourite" my shop so you can keep up with me as I get more and more inventory uploaded this week!  The top left picture is my gorgeous teenager modeling a cute peplum top grandma sent her for the fall. The bottom left was our Friday night pizza night. It was all homemade and so delicious! We also had drinks with friends at our favourite bar that consisted of a Tobelerone Martini (a chocolate martini) and an Irish Coffee. Very tasty way to end a Saturday! Sunday has consisted of some amazing cinnamon rolls and grocery shopping. 

This week I wanted to alert you all to a great ebook bundle that is going on right now:, 5 eBooks for $7.40!

You get 5 different ebooks on cooking real, unprocessed food for the upcoming colder months!! I know this will be a great one for me simply because where we live I crave hot foods, but need healthy alternatives! The link above is an affiliate link so I will receive a small portion if you click and buy a bundle, any money earned goes right back into the blog though! ;)

Food Prep:

Ultra Creamy Hemp Seed Dressing & Delicata Squash (both are very tasty), in the middle is an Almond Creame from the Karma Chow Cookbook for parfaits.

Paleo Spiced Nuts: 1 cup of walnuts and pecan, 1T honey (I'd reduce to 1/2 Tablespoon), and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. Bake at 350 for 10 min, continue baking if they aren't brown enough for you.

Our salad for the week! I can't wait to put that delicata squash over this with some nuts and that hemp seed dressing. Yum!

Well, that wraps up Meal Plan Monday! What are you making this week?
