Fall has arrived but our weather is odd. It’s chilly in the morning but in the 70’s by the afternoon, since it’s so sunny.

While I’d love to be making soup this week, it going to be a bit warm for that. Instead, we’ll be eating skillet meals that are easy to make.

While most of the week will be easy skillet meals, we will also have a few meals I’ll back just in case we have a cool rainy day mixed in.

But all of the meals this week are inexpensive to make and quick to make too.

Here’s what’s cooking at our house this week

I love how easy these cinnamon twist scones are to make. They are as easy to mix up as biscuits, but turn out looking so fancy. Great for breakfast or brunch when company is coming over. They are also a frugal breakfast recipe costing only $.10 each. My family gobbles these up every time I made them.

Toast, Eggs, and Oatmeal

Cinnamon Twists and Eggs

French Toast, Sausage, and Eggs
