We’ve had a pretty good Halloween season, but it was so long this year. Because I made our costumes at the end of August for our Disney trip (complete with a Halloween party in September), it has been two long months of Halloween festivities and anticipation. And now that it’s winding down, I’m glad to move on to the next thing. But we had a lot of fun!

If you’ve never seen a planner video, don’t be like me and fall down the rabbit hole of adorable women decorating hyper-organized planner systems. You’ll be hooked, and life will never be the same. I am becoming one of those women, and I made my first “plan with me” video last week. I did a Halloween-themed spread (that’s planner talk for a week’s layout in a paper planner) in my Erin Condren Life Planner for this week, and I got it all on film.

The original recipe for this yummy salad was great, but I swapped out a few things when I made this a while back. The dressing is so good. But feel free to go bananas with the original from Cafe Delites. It’s a great dinner salad. 

Dressing / Marinade:
⅓ cup honey
3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons smooth and mild Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt to season
4 skinless and boneless chicken thighs or chicken breasts

Last Sunday H, my brother, my nephew, and I went to Scothigh Farm in Rumson for the VNA Children’s Auxiliary’s Halloween Fest. It was a great fundraiser for the Children and Family Health Institute, and the kids had a ball.

This was a great summer dinner, but fall is my true slow cooker season. And still, a beef gyro is great for a weekend dinner, when we tend to go out for lunch and eat a bigger meal, then we just graze or throw something quick together for dinner. With this recipe, I can put these on in the morning before the day gets going, and we have weekend dinner for that evening with minimum work. This recipe is from Six Sisters Stuff, and it was straightforward and delicious. I only took one photo of the finished product, but look how tasty.
