Menu Plan–October 16th

This last week was a busy one – lots of meetings at night and processing time for Frog Prince and I.  We enjoyed some easier meals of homemade pizza (dough from the freezer), make-ahead chicken & brown rice bake, crockpot sloppy joes, butternut squash mac & cheese skillet and crockpot garden minestrone soup. 

This week, we’re trying some new recipes – I’m feeling the itch to be creative in the kitchen once again!

Lazy Sunday Casserole {new}, crockpot butternut squash

  1. I want to try those Apple Cider Donuts, too. Do you have a donut pan? We had your Olive Garden Breadsticks (again) last week. They're becoming a weekly side dish staple. Love them!

  2. Your menu sounds wonderful. I'm going to have to check out the crockpot butternut squash recipe. I love squash of any kind.

  3. @ Carrie -

    No doughnut pan here... we just used muffin tins. Mini muffin tins would have been perfect, but muffin tins worked too. We got about 12 "doughnut" holes from that recipe.

  4. Made your applesauce last night - it's sooooo good!!! :) Was happy to see it on your menu for this week too!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
