October Menu Plan

Picnik collage

One of the best things about Fall is being able to cook and bake. I love cooking all the soups, stews and casseroles, and of course, baking all the yummy apple and pumpkin desserts.

I’ve combined some old favorites and some new recipes for our October Menu. When I plan our meals, I try to include a Mexican night and an Italian night, throw in a few old favorites, like Meatloaf and Spaghetti, and always include at least 2 nights during the month for Breakfast.

This month we are having…

5 ~  Mostacolli, Salad, Garlic Bread

6 ~  Chicken Broccoli Braid

7 ~  Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Veggie

8 ~  Tex Mex Chicken & Rice

9 ~  Football Homecoming – Son is nominated for King :) (leftovers and eat at the game)

10~ Whole Chicken (in oven, cook 2 or 3 and freeze for another time)

11~ Chili and Sandwiches

12~ Chicken N’ Noodles, Mashed Potatoes and Veggie

13~ Breakfast

14~ Loaded Tostadas, Chips and Salsa

15~ Chicken Pot Pie

16~ Bubble Pizza

17~ Mini Meal (small food)

18~ Glazed Pork Chops, Baked Potatoes

19~ Spaghetti and Meatballs

20~ Taco Bake

21~ Sliced Marinated Chicken, Rice

22~ Soup & Sandwich

23~ Chicken Quesedillas, Chips and Salsa

24~ Homemade Pizza

25~ Rosemary Chicken, Potatoes, Veggie

26~ Chicken Fajitas

      @Lisa, It’s a new recipe that I found, I’ve never made it. It’s like a pizza casserole. I will share the recipe after I give it a try. I’m hoping it’s good.
      Thanks for visiting!

    I’m wondering about bubble pizza too. I *so* wish I could get into an stick with meal planning but it’s so hard when my husband works 10am-9pm most days (add two hours to each day come November and December!) and I spend about half of the week with him.
