Exploring Georgetown

Last weekend we took a day trip up into the mountains to the Victorian mining town of Georgetown. Every year Georgetown hosts a Victorian Christmas Fair, and we had a fun day exploring the small historic town. Here are some pictures from our day:

After the fair, we drove up Guanella Pass into Arapahoe National Forest

Weekly Meal Plan: 12.21.14

It's been a while since I did my meal plan posts. Between the move, having my parents visit, then flying back to CA for Thanksgiving, and then catching a really nasty cold, my planning has not been so great! I know the next few weeks still won't be totally "normal" but I'm looking forward to getting some semblance of a plan. Here we go for this week:

Sunday: leftovers

Monday: enchiladas

Tuesday: homemade pizza

Wednesday: ham, roasted vegetables and latkes!

Thursday: date lunch at the movies; slow cooker Pumpkin Chili for dinner

Friday: leftovers

Saturday: quesadillas with leftover roasted vegetables
