Menu Plan Monday ~ Nov 9/15

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Nov 9/15. Recipe links and menu planning inspiration!!

Hi everyone! We enjoyed a beautiful snowy Sunday here yesterday.  I love the snow as long as I don’t have to drive anywhere :)


We also had a potluck after church service yesterday.  I love potlucks, which is good since I’m in charge of making sure they all run smoothly.  I like to bring easy to whip together desserts so when I saw Karen Ehman’s recipe for Cookies and Milk for a Crowd I knew it would be perfect.  What’s not to love about quick and easy and delicious?

    We’ve already had snow here in Michigan, too. Not loving it, as I am more of a summer loving person. Still, it has its beauty. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    What a beautiful snowy scene! We don’t usually get snow here in Maryland until January or February, so we have a while to wait.

    Have a good week Laura! :)

    Oh, I don’t think I’m ready for snow yet. We’ve had a lot of beautiful days with windows open kind of weather lately (highly unusual for us this time of year!). Waking up to temps in the 30s wasn’t fun today.

    I love pot lucks! Our family does one every other week or so and it’s great.

    I think Cookies and Milk for a crowd is one of the most genius desserts I’ve ever heard of!! I cannot wait to make this for my family…cookies and milk is their favorite!

    I’ve never thought to bake burgers in the oven before. Those look yummy! And I’m a Texan living in Colorado, so looking at snow is beautiful as long as I don’t have to drive anywhere in it. We thankfully haven’t had any snowfalls yet this year, but I think we’re in for a snowy winter.

    Oh, I love the snowy picture! Until today it has been really warm in Virginia. I’m so looking forward to cooler weather, fires and eventually some snow.

    SNOW?!?! That’s quite a bit of snow too. It looks beautiful I agree and here in NC if we got that much snow everything would close (which is just fine by me, but then we have to make up a bunch of school days).

    Thanks for hosting this delicious linkup as always!

    Two recipe favorites come from Taste of Home – baked ravioli and also the twice baked potato casserole. Question on the dessert- can it be made farther in advance than 2 hours or will it be too mushy? And what did you sprinkle on yours?

      I actually made it the night before and it was great. I sprinkled chocolate chips and Skor bits on top. :)
