Meal Planner Monday

 I'm LOVING this weather we're having in the northeast! Autumn is approaching with its crisp mornings and chilly nights. The leaves are starting to turn. The heat has gone away. I love it!

You know what I don't love? Fruit flies! It seems that with the change of temperature, all of the fruit flies in my little town have decided to take refuge in my kitchen. I'm not talking about a few fruit flies buzzing around a basket of bananas. NO! I'm talking a swarm of 3,000 fruit flies everywhere in my kitchen!

It started out innocently enough, with a few flies buzzing around four peaches that I bought literally 12 hours before. Seeing that, I quickly relocated the peaches and any other fruit to the refrigerator. Not taking any chances, I removed any other fruit fly temptations from the kitchen. I Cleaned everything off and sealed any open containers up. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough and those few flies turned into a few hundred fruit flies. I tried sucking them up with the vacuum cleaner (I even wrapped the vacuum up in a trash bag to make sure they didn't escape!) I set out all those great little DIY fruit fly traps, catching a few of those little buggers in the process. After all that, they're still flying around. I'm getting desperate!

Look, I hate bugs! Hate them. I can stand snakes and rodents, but I can't stand bugs! They're gross! The only animals I am fearful of are sasquatches. I know you think I'm crazy, but I grew up in the woods and that really was something I was afraid of. And why wouldn't I be? I believe they walk among us! Don't believe me?
