    I am so happy to have cooler weather (cold weather, in fact – for LA anyway). It makes me want to bake, braise, and simmer. {Sounds like a dance 😉 } The big problem is finding time to do those things, as I have been crazy busy this past month, and it’s catching up to me because I’ve been fighting off the same cold for a couple of weeks now. I’m working on managing my time, though, and hopefully that will give me more kitchen time. Here’s what I’m planning for this week:

    Monday – Coq au Vin, Sweet Potato Gratin

    Tuesday – Slow Cooker Chili

    Wednesday – Dinner out

    Thursday – Farfalle with Cauliflower & Raisins (didn’t get to this last week)

    Friday – Miso Chicken, Rice, some kind of vegetable

    Saturday – Dinner out

    Sunday – Mini Farfalle With Creamy Mushroom Sauce, Steamed Broccoli
