Menu Plan Monday ~ September 9/13


Happy Monday y’all (is there such a thing?).  Fall is in the air isn’t it?  I don’t know if I’m ready to say goodbye to summer just yet, but the leaves are already changing so it’s coming whether I’m ready or not.  Blogland has exploded with fall recipes recently.  Everywhere I look I see apple recipes, caramel recipes, soup recipes, squash recipes and the dreaded pumpkin recipes.  Blech!  I am not a fan of pumpkin and my husband doesn’t really care for it either, thank goodness.  We also both can’t stand green peppers.   Isn’t that sweet?  Ha!

Here are a couple of fall roundup posts I’ve come across in the last couple of days that I thought you might enjoy:

    I just attempted to link to your site. I am new to blogging so I hope that I have done everything correctly. I see that mine is not linked yet and I am supposing that it has to wait for your approval. Please let me know if there is something else I need to do or if something needs to be done differently. Thanks

    I love Fall but the temps are still in the 90s here so I’m not feeling very Fall-ish yet. I was craving soup this week but just can’t bring myself to put it on the menu yet. Maybe in a few weeks. Thanks for hosting!

    I love summer but now that the calendar says September I do wish the fall weather would go ahead and make an appearance. Thanks for hosting this every week! It really does motivate me to get my menus planned even if I am sometimes a bit late in doing it.
