Happy Monday! We are so excited you are here to visit! Pocket Change Gourmet is almost a month old, can you believe it? And is it seriously almost September? Where did our Summer go? Seems like the boys were just getting out the school, and now they are already back there.

September is a special month in our house, Doug and I will be celebrating our 23rd Anniversary! We have always talked about going to Hawaii for our 25th…not sure we will make it, but hopefully!

Our weather has already been cooling down a bit, so we will enjoy a few oven dinners this month, while still holding onto every last day of Summer that we can.

Give it a try I’d love to hear your feedback.

  1. I definitely want to try some of your recipes – like the Chicken Lo Mein and the Taco soup! I am giving my Crockpot a good workout this week since the kids are back in school and the sports schedules are about to get crazy!

    Have a great week!
