Easy Fall Menu Plan

With the weather becoming cooler, I like to change my menu plan to more soups, casseroles and oven baked dinners. It helps to warm up the house and that warm comfort food just hits the spot when it cool outside.

But during the month of October, I also like to keep a few easy oven-free meals on the menu plan. Because occasionally we can have a nice warm day here and there.

On this week’s menu plan I’ve included a few oven prepared meals, baked fries, and pizza, along with a few oven-free meals too. I like to make skillet dishes all year long because they are usually so quick to make, perfect for a busy day.

I find having a good balance of easy to make meals with ones that might take a little longer helps me to pick and choose what to cook as we start each day.

If we are having a busy day, I might pick to make breakfast for dinner. If we are having a more relaxed day and I have more time I might choose to make a soup or casserole that will take a little more time to prepare.

It helps to naturally balance out what we are having for dinner. It keeps us from eating the same thing for dinner night.

Having a variety of dinners on our meal plan helps to keep us from eating out even on busy days. Keep us from getting bored, eating the same old thing over and over. And I can put in a few new recipes here and there too.
