Menu Plan Monday ~ Oct 26/15

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Oct 26/15. Recipe links and menu planning inspiration!!

Hi all! The last couple of days I’ve been feeling so cold and can’t seem to warm up.  It’s definitely colder around here these days but really I just think I might be coming down with something.  The idea of soup and chili right now sounds yummy to me and I thought maybe a few of you might be feeling that way too. I searched around and found some great recipe roundups that I thought you might enjoy and help you with your weekly menu plan.

Previous Week Recipe Highlight:

My favorite recipe from last week was the Spaghetti Squash Bolognese.  It was absolutely delicious and it didn’t even take that long to throw together which is a must in my book. Really yummy flavor on this one, highly recommend!

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Roast Beef Swiss Melt and for me Egg, Spinach and Tomato Scramble

Tuesday:  Smoky Coconut Milk Braised Chicken served with broccoli

Wednesday:  Perfectly Moist Pork Loin served with rice and tossed salad

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night! and for me Coconut Crusted Salmon

Saturday:  Creamy Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

    Yes, I definitely have chili on our list! We have actually had some surprisingly milder temps for fall, but it’s still chilly enough for me! Have a great week.

    I put a bunch of fall soups on last week’s menu plan, then it was 75-80 every day! Not sure what to expect this week so I mixed it up a bit 🙂

    I hope you enjoy my carrot & sweet potato soup! I’m having some of that this week as well. I also plan on roasting a chicken this week since the temperature has finally dropped to Fall weather!

    I think it is finally starting to cool down and stay that way around here (although last week I had the a/c going!) so soups and chili sound good again. I definitely need to check out that spaghetti squash recipe. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    It’s been both cold and hot here the past few weeks in Denver, CO. The weather can’t seem to make up its mind. But I’ve been celebrating Crocktober on the blog all this month and love a great chili or soup! Thanks for hosting!
