Happy Manic Monday everyone!! Can you believe December it already here? We just went and got our tree this weekend so it is up but it is much bigger than we though so I need to go get more lights!!

Manic Monday Party #19

Standard
Hi everyone and Happy Manic Monday! “Tis the season, at least at our house, to decorate the house as bright and crazy for Christmas as possible. Oh nothing like this picture, but I have been know to come very close. Below is what I did to the apartment I was living in a few years ago. The neighbor used to bring her daughter by every time I decorated (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) because she said it  made her smile.

It is also “Cyber Monday” so I am multi tasking today, decorate, work, shop. Crazy manic day here for sure, and I still have to figure out what to make for dinner. Kevin is a bit tired of Thanksgiving leftovers (although he may still be getting some). But I could definitely use some last minute ideas for a quick meal! So let’s get to our wonderful features from last weeks party!!
Green Salad from Mooshu Jenne
Smoky Red Shredded Chicken Enchiladas from Sumptuous Spoonfuls  
Cranberry-Cheddar Quick Bread from What’s Cooking?
What a wonderful group of recipes we had last week! It was hard to find the top three because everyone loved everything!! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with this week.
So let’s get down to business. If I have ever needed some manic Monday ideas today is the day so load me up with your last minute meal ideas!!

Ahhhh yes, Monday is here again. That pesky day that can send us all into a head spin, trying to balance work, family, etc. And somewhere in there a meal or two needs to be planned right? I don’t know about you but especially at this time of year I wish I could clone myself because there just doesn’t seem like there is enough of me to go around!!

That is why I am looking forward to this weeks Manic Monday. I have been doing a bit of baking this past week, which if you have been reading my blog for a while you know is a big thing. I have been baking cookies, cupcakes, and bread….well the cookies and cup cakes have been for a the most part good. The bread? I think it would have made a really good weapon but not sure anyone would want to eat it!! OH well, I will try again, I am determined this time!!Enough about me, lets get on to this weeks features OK? After so many great shares these are the top three from last weeks party.

Savory Bread Pudding – Red Lobster Copy Cat Garlic Biscuits from Inspired by eRecipeCards.com

Hi everyone, it is that time of the week again. It always seems to sneak up on us doesn’t it? It is Monday, what in the heck am I making tonight???? Luckily I planned a head for a change and thawed out some forzen marinara sauce I had and picked up some turkey sausage. So spaghetti is on the menu tonight. Simple and easy! I was going to make some bread today, but that would require a shopping trip and I am not really wanting to go. To much to get done here today!!
Last Monday our Manic Monday had it’s normal entries for last minute meals, but we also had a Halloween theme. We had some terrific posts for both. But these are the top 3 viewed/voted for posts.

I can’t believe that it is almost Halloween can you? This year has just flown by. I do love this time of year though. I love the costumes, and the candy, and the creepy decorations. I wish we had moved a month earlier so I could have decorated, but there was just no time to dig everything out while I was trying to get other stuff put away. But you can be sure that I will be all decked out for Christmas!

I was so excited last week. This was the biggest Manic Monday yet! You all posted some wonderful food!! Let me share with you the top 3 posts from last weeks party.

Mushroom Barley Soup from Carrie’s Experimental Kitchen
Meat Lovers 4 Layer Pizza Dip from The Slow Roasted Italian
Pumpkin Spice Poke Cake from Love Bakes Good Cakes
I wish I could have featured everyone’s posts though, there were so many tempting and tasty ones!! 
Now on to the fun stuff….
As usual you can post your meal ideas for Manic Mondays but I thought with Halloween coming up it might be fun to post some of your favorite Halloween treats. Scary or sweet, whatever they might be, let’s see them!!

Welcome to Manic Monday! I know it seems like forever since the last party, but with moving and other issues I have been away from you all for over 2 weeks! But now I am back and hope to make this the best Manic Monday Party ever!!!

Here are the featured posts from the last party..

Buckeye Brownie Bites from Flour Me with Love
Joe Montana‚Äôs Touchdown Guacamole from Noshing with the Nolands

WOW there were some really great recipes last time. I am glad you all vote because it would be so hard for me to pick just a few to feature!! 

So with that said, let’s get this weeks party started!

As always, you can share what ever recipe posts you would like to share, with an emphasis on quick and easy meals or desserts. However this week I thought we could zone in on your favorite soup and sandwich recipes. With the fall temps it is the perfect time for soups, stews, and sandwiches!

Farfalle with Sausage and Tomato Cream Sauce

Happy Monday everyone! Have you ever had one of those Mondays when you just want to turn off the alarm, pull the covers over your head, and go back to sleep? I had one of those this morning. Our record number of days with no rain here in Western Washington came to an end. 40 days of gorgeousness and now we are cloudy and gray and drizzly. I knew it wouldn’t last forever, but boy it was nice! OK enough about me, let’s get down to business.

First let me share the top three posts from last week.

Skinny Hot and Spicy Chicken Legs from Skinny Kitchen


Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches with Gravy from Love Bakes Good Cakes


Mango Banana Muffins with White Chocolate Chips from Sugar Cookies to Peterbilts


There were some fantastic posts shared last week and it was very very close!



I can’t believe we are already at #12 for our Manic Monday parties. I want to thank everyone that has been participating, it has been so much fun. Hopefully we can get the word out to more bloggers so the people that want to find recipes for Manic Monday have tons to choose from.

So with that said, on with the rules….

Happy Labor Day! Can you believe it is September already?? I can’t! This year has just flown by. With Labor Day here that means that kids are back in school, which makes our Manic Mondays all the more manic. If there is ever a time everyone needs some ideas it is now. I remember when my kids were in school I started a recipe book of just recipes that would take about 30 minutes so when I was in a crunch I could go right to that and know what to make. Even then though I would have last minute scrambles to figure out what was for dinner. Who am I kidding? I still have those scrambles now!! My Pasta with Chicken and Garlic Cream Sauce is one that will go in that recipe book for good.
I love seeing what you all share every week. There are always fantastic posts that I can’t wait to try. Trust me my Pintrest board is cram packed with them!! Here are a few of the top viewed posts from last weeks party.
Baked Penne from Recipe Round up

Grilled Veggies, Pesto & Ricotta Sandwich from The Full Belly Sisters

Apple Cake from Crepes Suzette
Eclair’s from Crumbs in my Mustachio


Now on to the rules. Ya ya I know, rules? We don’t need no stinkin’ rules! But they aren’t that bad trust me.
