Happy Saturday to you!

I hope that you had a great week and are looking forward to some downtime over the next couple of days.

On my list of things to do this weekend is making a list of all the meals that are family favorites to make meal planning easier as we head into the fall. How do you tackle meal planning? It’s always been an Achilles heel for me, so I would love to hear what works! I recently read about someone who plans and does one large grocery haul per month, with small trips/orders for fresh produce as needed. I’m inspired!

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Creamy Peanut Butter Pie – Homemade Peanut Butter Pie starts with an Oreo crust and is topped with a creamy peanut butter filling made from scratch (no Cool Whip!).

Hush Puppies with Spicy Dipping Sauce – These hush puppies are a Southern classic and this recipe is absolutely the best; a simple batter that comes together quickly and only takes minutes to fry up. A perfect side dish or appetizer.

Kentucky Derby Chocolate Bourbon Walnut Pie – This wonderfully decadent chocolate-walnut bourbon pie, affectionately known as “derby pie” is a Kentucky tradition! Very similar to pecan pie in taste and texture with the addition of chocolate chips and a good splash of bourbon, this will become a fast favorite. Whether you make it while watching the derby or save it for a holiday dessert, it is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Friday Things #385 – Kids, cookie scoops, Nordstrom sale, Tastefully Simple, memories, a new kids’ show, and more!

1. Refrigerator Bread and Butter Pickles

2. My Favorite White Bread Recipe

3. Classic Burger Sauce
