Menu Plan Monday ~ Oct 27th

Howdy!   It is starting to get pretty cool here in my neck of the woods.  So I finally got the hats and mitts out and got all that organized ready for the first snowfall to hit.  Probably won’t be too long now.   Funny how doing all that has put me in the mood for some Corny Chili.  I love this recipe.  It’s a bit different from your standard chili recipes and I like that it has corn in it and isn’t as heavy.  Still very comforting though 🙂

So last week I made Broccoli and Cheese Soup which I was so looking forward to.  I’d love to say it was great and I’m sure it really is if made with regular cheese.  Without even thinking I made the mistake of just adding my usual cheddar cheese into the soup.  I always buy the light version and let’s just say the light version just doesn’t melt too well in a soup recipe.  Especially a soup recipe that is suppose to be creamy.  Ugg.  We still ate it though because really at that point what else were we going to do but it didn’t have that magical creaminess about it that I know it should have had.  Drat.  I’ll definitely try it again sometime soon though and hopefully I’ll get it right this time.

Next weekend I’m flying out to Ontario to see my family and attend the National Professional Organizers conference in Toronto.  I’m so excited about it and this year I’m going to be one of the speakers!  I still can’t really believe it especially after my humbling experience last year.

Don’t forget to come on back to see what I’ll be giving away for the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival.  It has something to do with menu planning so you won’t want to miss it!

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:

Monday: Black Bean Quesadillas

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Corny Chili

Wednesday: Chicken Soup with Tortellini and Cheese

Thursday: Quick Roast Beef with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

Friday: Fettuccine Bolognese (mmm, this one looks so good!)

Saturday: I’m leaving on a jet plane!  Woohoo 🙂

    The Corny Chili looks yummy! I bet the corn adds a nice sweetness to balance the chili spices! Will have to try it soon! Have a great week!

    What a bummer about the broccoli and cheese soup last week! But, that tortellini soup looks like it just might make up for it…yummy!

    Maybe this year’s P.O. conference will be different. You’ll probably have your own booth soon.

    That chicken soup sounds delish. Too bad my mom and I are probably the only ones who would eat it. 🙁

    I wish it would snow here soon, but unfortunately (?) we have pretty much the same sunny weather all year round here in California. 🙂 I’m still in the mood for fall, hearty food though.

    Yum! Those all sound so good! I love when recipes change over from ‘summer’ to ‘winter’ type recipes!

    This is my first time posting on here, but I’ve done menu planning for about a year. I post my menu plans on Thursdays instead of Mondays because that’s when I go shopping. It’s a lot easier for me.

    Your menu sounds great, very comfort food for fall… I should have checked it before making mine. It would have saved me some trouble planning because everything sounds just like what I would want to eat right now. I even have a taco chili on that is very much like a corny chili! Great minds think alike, I guess!

    Have a great week and thanks for hosting!

    Here’s a testimonial that I posted on my blog: I have to say that getting my menus in order for the week on Monday has improved exponentially the “Domestic Goddess” part of my life. I had my week organized, overall, for many years and I had a basic dinner plan that I followed. And yet, somehow, adding the menu planning to my Monday has boosted my already above-average organizing to a new level.

    Thanks for continuing to encourage us every week to plan our menus. I’ve been lax in this department the last few weeks, but with the holiday season creeping up, this is one small way to keep myself sane!

    My second week participating in Menu Plan Monday. It’s fun to look at what other people are posting as well. The Mr. Linky thing is clever.

    Thank you so much for this weekly event. I’ve just not been in the mood to menu plan, and I know the budget suffers when I don’t. This is just the impetus I need to keep my act together!
