Menu Plan Monday: October 26


I bought a new cook book today.  It is a crock pot cook book and I’m anxious to try some new recipes.  I’ve been on a Christmas planning kick ever since ordering Christmas cards a couple weeks ago. One area I struggle with is serving food to company for several days.  I plan ahead but time and circumstances always seem to get in the way.  This year I hope to test some new crock pot recipes early so they are ready for company to come, as well as the ever typical busy everyday.

So here’s what I’m thinking…


lunch – sausage, pancakes, banana, strawberries & milk

supper – everyone will be gone to different events & eating there


lunch – Cauliflower & Tuna Casserole, peaches & milk

supper – Three-Bean Burrito Bake, chips, corn & milk


lunch – shredded chicken on buns, baked beans, apple slices & milk

supper – Cheesy Chicken Casserole, green beans, salad & milk


lunch – pepperoni pizza, salad, carrots, milk

supper – leftovers


lunch – spaghetti & meatballs, green beans, milk

supper – brats, potato wedges & fruit


lunch – pb&j sandwiches, carrot sticks and fruit

supper – snack food, sloppy joes, other fun food since the kids are both having friends over that day to go trick-or-treating with them


lunch – leftovers

supper – potato soup, cheese & crackers, fresh veggies

There you have it…some new recipes and easy favorites.  Breakfasts will be the usual, fruit with some combination of cereal, bagels, english muffins, pancakes or oatmeal.  I might try a new scone recipe, we’ll see.
