I made my menu plan and grocery list on Friday night. I can tell the season is changing by what I'm including on both. The change of seasons provides inspiration for me in the kitchen. I enjoy being able to add seasonal fruits & vegetables to our table.
I purchased a butternut squash yesterday. Lawman and I both love it. The girls will try it but they're not a fan of it. I'm planning to include it with our dinner tonight.
I'm doing some baking today. Another thing I don't do during the warmer months. I've got a Honey Bun Coffee Cake (similar to this one) in the oven which will provide breakfast for at least 3 days this week and B3 just whipped up some chocolate chip cookie dough to make cookies yet this afternoon. Last week I made a gingerbread cake (with the help of Betty Crocker's mix) for dessert; another seasonal item we enjoy.
Here's our menu plan for the week --
Sunday - BBQ beef (from the freezer), roasted butternut squash, mac & cheese corn casserole
Monday - Bubble Pizza (carry-over from last week), Salad
Tuesday - Chicken & Rice Soup (from the freezer)
Wednesday - Broccoli & Potato Bake, Baked Beans, Corn Muffins (from the freezer)
Thursday - Pancakes or Waffles, Sausage, Fruit
Friday - Frozen Pizza (needed a quick meal between an out-of-town trip and getting to a football game)
Saturday - Chicken Tacos (crockpot) & all the fixin's.
