I hope you're all having a wonderful final October weekend! We have been participating in several Halloween celebrations here in Colorado -- from a fall celebration at my son's Montessori school to Boo at the Zoo at our wonderful Denver Zoo.
But I'm back with my meal planning by theme and I'm ready to share some recipe links that relate to the following cooking themes I'm looking forward to trying this week:
