The Organized LIfe, September Paint Bucket

Here are some things I’m thinking about making in September.  I love to have a list of recipes at my finger tips in case I don’t have much time to think or plan out menus.  Fall is all about football at our house so let me know if you have a great recipe for tailgating!

Holy cow, I didn’t make much from the August Paint Bucket!!  I did make a few things, and then turned to old favorites such as Rotel Chicken and Vegetables, Italian Sausage Baked Ziti,  Baked Tacos  

Here’s what I did make from my August Paint Bucket:

I started out making Caramelized Onion, Mushroom and Apple Bites but I didn’t have any mushrooms so I decided to make Pizza Caprese…. which is not the same thing at all… so I am keeping the Caramelized Onion Mushroom and Apple bites on the bucket list for September!  It sounds perfect and appley for Fall!
