Menu plan with recipe links

This is the last long weekend of summer. Those lazy long days of summer fun are over and fall will start soon.

I love the fall weather after a long hot summer. I’m ready for fall to begin. For the change of seasons and change of food, we’ll be eating too.

But the weather will still be warmer this week so the soup recipes will have to wait for a little while longer.

This week we’ll be having skillet salisbury steak. It’s so good and under $1 a serving too.

We have two chicken dishes on the meal plan, chicken fajitas and thai chicken thighs. So good and inexpensive to make too.

And we’ll be having tacos this week along with a few other family favorites. See our full meal plan below.

I know in the fall, when there’s newly picked apples to be had, I love to make apple recipes. There is just something about fall and apples. This mini apple muffin recipe is really delicious. I added a nut crumble topping to them to add a little crunch and extra flavor. This recipe can be made dairy and egg free too.

Pancakes, Sausage, and Eggs
