Menu Plan Monday: Oct 29-Nov 4, 2012

mpmfall1

I’m really glad we started participating in the Menu Plan Monday blog party last week. For the first time in a while, we cooked almost all week. We did a pretty good job of sticking to the schedule, and if we keep this up, we may actually start to put a real dent in our pantry and freezer stores. So we’ve been doing a pretty good mix of old favorites and new recipes – on average, we tried 3 or 4 new recipes last week, and most of them were good enough that we’ll make them again, especially the Elotes Bake – we’re already planning on making it again this week along with Tamale Pie. Each one of the recipes below should be linked to either our blog post when we made it, or the original blog source of a recipe we’d like to try. This week, with the shift downward in temperature, we’ve been craving warm spices and hearty, stick to your bones meat and potatoes type of fare. Be sure to check out what others are making this week. Here’s what we have planned.

Monday: Avocado Melt, Chips

Tuesday: Meatball and Italian Sausage Grinders, Garden Salad

Wednesday: Chicken Tamale Pie, Elote Style Corn Bake

Thursday: Apple Sausage with Sauerkraut, Sauteed Pierogies and Onions

Friday: Chicken Meatloaf (from North Market Poultry and Game), Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans

Saturday: Sugo di Carne with Pasta

Sunday: Chicken Divine (original recipe, which I’ve recently adapted and need to rephotograph – I’ve blogged about it previously when using leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make a Turkey Divine)

New Breakfast/Brunch Recipes: Healthy Pumpkin Pie Muffins with Streusel Topping, Pumpkin Pie French Toast, Kale Frittata

Dessert to Try: Butterfinger Nutter Butter Cheesecake Bars

So what dishes do the rest of you have planned for this week?

  1. I’m visiting from Organized Junkie’s Menu Plan Monday today.
    We love cooking and eating at home too. Not only is is less expensive but we’re able know what’s in the food. Also, when we do eat out it’s a treat.
    Looks like there’s going to be some amazing meals this week.
    Happy Halloween!

  2. I love your blog and all your restaurant reviews! I’d love to get in contact with you about a Foodie Event in Columbus next week. Please send me an email so I can tell you more about it :) lisa@ucreate.us
