With the arrival of fall, I like to change my menu plan to more soups, casseroles and oven baked dinners. 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 it’s a busy day, I might pick to make breakfast for dinner or if I have more time I might choose to make a soup or casserole that will take a little more time to prepare.
Having a variety of dinners on our meal plan helps to keep us from eating out even on busy days.
