Menu Plan–November 4

Is anyone else thankful for the extra hour of sleep?  What a blessing at this time of the year – and given the last couple of weeks, I more than needed it.  With the weather turning cooler, last week we made one of our favorite soups – St. Margaret’s Charity Meatball Tortellini Soup.

This soup is amazing.  I don’t know what it is about the combination of these ingredients {they are really simple}, but they create an amazing taste. 

We also enjoyed another fall favorite – Whole Wheat Pumpkin Sweet Potato Gingersnaps.   These are delightfully moist and packed full of flavor. 

As we move toward Thanksgiving, I’ve decided to slow down the frequency of posts here on Finding Joy in My Kitchen.  At this point, I’m planning for 3 recipe posts a week, and of course, Friday Favorite Finds

This will give me the time I need to enjoy this holiday season with my family and continue with my responsibilities teaching 80 college kiddos biology this semester. 

This week, we’re planning to eat:

Buttercup Squash Baked Oatmeal {new}, craisins
Roasted Red Pepper Soup & Whole Wheat Pretzels

To Do: Thaw spaghetti sauce

Leftover Baked Oatmeal

Crockpot Ziti, Olive Garden Bread Sticks, Green Beans
