Ahhhh! I can’t believe I just wrote November 1st. Seriously? It seems as though fall is slipping away. We had lingering days of summer and now, the chill is in the air. November, here we come!
We have had some busy weeks getting fall chores done around the house and I am proud to say that (for the most part) my weekly meal plans have NOT fallen by the wayside. I’ve been keeping up pretty well with them. And they have allowed me to become much more realistic about what I can realistically accomplish on these busy fall days.
Last week was filled with successes. I was SO excited to get some new solid additions to our meal plan rotation. The most exciting one for me was this One Dish Slow Cooker Quinoa Tex Mex from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. It not only made an easy, delicious, flavorful and healthy dinner, but also lunches for me for a couple of days after. I am in LOVE with the dish and can’t wait to make it again.
G was sick with Strep throat later in the week and so the Italian Wedding Soup that I made came in handy as it was the perfect meal for his sore throat.
I also snuck in this delicious Grandma Barb’s Apple Bread from A Farmgirl’s Dabbles. The shredded apples….totally made it!
Now onto this week!
Sunday: Lemon Chicken Piccata with Rice
Monday: Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
Tuesday: Bagels with Cream Cheese, Fruit, and Cheese
We are on the run big time tonight with dance AND flu shots so….it is what it is!
Wednesday: Amazing Vegetable Soup

I am volunteering at the school all day and Great Gma is here so we clearly need to take her to the delish BBQ joint up the street.
Friday: Halloween!! Pizza Night with Neighbors
Saturday: Taco Night
I am heading to Margaritas Mexican Restaurant to celebrate National Nacho Day so the family is on their own. 😉
What’s on your meal plan this week?
