Menu Monday- Apple Week

by - Monday, September 30, 2013

It's Apple Week! This is a big holiday in our house where we only eat either foods we would get to eat at Applefest or foods with apple in them. It's just a fun little thing to take some of the sting off missing Applefest, because this is basically the week of the year I am most homesick (and we will never go home, because some of our family is so busy this weekend that we wouldn't even get to see them if we did). So we try to make it a fun thing we look forward to here too, even if you can barely tell it is fall.

So this is the menu for the week:

Sunday- Sausage Sandwiches, Corn on the cob, grilled zucchini, and Apple crisp
Monday- Apple cider chicken
Tuesday- Apple bacon and cheddar panini and salad
Wednesday- (we are starting something new on Wednesdays for Top Chef, where we try something really fancy and scary on Wednesdays) Fennel-crusted pork chops with apple fennel salad and apple cider sauce.
Thursday- Sausage sandwich, tomato salad, grilled veggies, and dutch apple pie
Friday- Food trucks

I also decorate the house a little bit with garlands and that sort of thing. My goal this year is to think of a way to make some "classic cars" and have a mini car show in our house. I am trying to think of something funny for that.
