Menu Plan Monday, September 23rd

Menu plan with recipe links

The weather is becoming more and more fall like here. I really love this time of year. With the cool crisp air that seem so fresh.

It’s also the time of year when I start to make recipes that I haven’t made all summer long.

This week we will be having crockpot cranberry pork roast. It’s a dish we haven’t had for a while and it sounds so good. It’s a simple slow cooker dish that you can make easily on a weeknight, but it’s fancy enough for a holiday dinner too.

I’ll also be making twice baked taco potatoes. Since the weather is cooler I can start running the oven more.

And my family loves twice baked taco potatoes. They are freezer friendly but even when I make a double batch we never have enough leftovers for the freezer.

Even though fall is here we will be continuing a breakfast for dinner once a week, like we did last month, this week we will be having apple pancakes. Because it’s apple season!

And finally if you haven’t tried the slow cooker enchiladas, they are super easy to make, no rolling, and taste so good. It’s definitely a recipe to try.

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

This is an easy and delicious baked donuts recipe. Who wouldn’t love double chocolate donuts that are baked to help keep the fat down? Better yet, these are also dairy free donuts too. You’ll have to see how easy these are to make. If you can measure and stir you can make them too.

  1. These ideas sound really good. My favorites that you mentioned are the Italian Pork Chops, Roasted Vegetables, and Salad and Twice Taco Baked Potatoes, Fruit, and Salad. I will definitely give these a mix 🙂

  2. The donuts looks so scrumptious Shelly! I really need to get a donut pan so that I can bake some at home…the kids really love them, but the store-bought ones are not friendly to me now that I’m getting older.

    I’m so glad to hear that you have been having nice weather…hopefully it will stay that way for a while 🙂
