Transition to Fall Skillet Dishes Meal Plan

At our house summer is still holding on. It has cooled off quite a bit from last week, yeah the upper 90 temperatures have left us. But warm weather is still sticking around.

I’m longing for the cool crisp air of fall. Summer was great but it’s time to move on and I’m ready.

To encourage fall to come along I’ve added a few fall like meals to our menu plan this week. But I kept them to skillet made meals because it’s not likely I’ll be able to run the oven without really heating up the house this week.

Pizza was a meal everyone requested at our home this week so it’s on the meal plan as waffle pizza pockets. Everyone loves them and I’m sure I won’t get any complaints.

The southwest chicken skillet, spaghetti and meatballs, and ground beef stroganoff are easy to make stove top meals. Making them quick and easy dinners for those days.

My daughter requested southern fried tofu and it’s on the meal plan this week. My son thinks it’s just like chicken and gobbles it up without complaint.

Finally, we will be having grilled hamburgers again this week. My son loves them and with the temperatures still being on the warming side, grilling is always a good option for an easy dinner.

What’s cooking at your house this week?

Here are the Meals for this Week,


Quick and Easy Waffle Pizza, when it’s too hot to bake pizza we make pizza in the waffle iron. These pizza pockets turn out crisp and melty, just perfect for a quick and fun pizza dinner or lunch.

  1. We’re having a bit of a cold spell this week, as well as some rain, so I thought I would take the opportunity to make some soup…turkey corn chili, actually. I’ve been looking forward to fall weather and soup for a while now 🙂

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. Soup sounds good the turkey corn chili you make looks so yummy. We are hoping for rain this weekend, it will help with the wildfires that are still burning. Hopefully, we will get enough to put them out.

      I hope you have a great week too.

  2. One of my sons is a huge fan of hamburgers, too. I’m sure he wishes we would make hamburgers more often. 🙂

    Your menu looks good, Shelly, and I hope you and your family have a great week!

    By the way, I’ve been hearing about the fires in Oregon. Are they near you guys at all? I’m praying they’re contained soon!

    1. The wildfires are not close enough to us to cause us any harm. But we had a few days when we had ash falling at our house like snow and the air was filled with smoke. The ash is everywhere. We have rain in the forecast for this weekend and I’m praying it will be enough to put out the wildfires near by and hopefully clear the air and wash away the ash.

      Thanks for praying the fires are contained soon. Maybe that will happen this weekend.

      I hope you had a great week too.
