Menu Plan Monday Oct. 4-9

Menu Plan Monday

Hi everyone! I’m so late with my menu plan post today! We were out of town this past weekend and didn’t end up getting back home until late last night. I had all these grand plans for my post this week, but that is now put on hold until next week.

We went to Austin for the Day Out With Thomas, which was so much fun! The boys both loved it – I’ll have to post photos and tell you more about it later. I’ve heard the event varies from location to location, but I’d highly recommend the one we were at.

While in Austin I also got to meet up with the lovely Amanda from Food on the Table! I could tell from talking to her just how passionate they are about making a product that really helps people… and about food, which is something I’m totally passionate about too. :) I was planning on including a Food on the Table recipe this week, but our dining table is still covered with luggage, if that’s any indication of how prepared I am for the week.

Sooo, here’s what I’m going to do. Next week I’m going to include 5 – count ’em, 5! – recipes from Food on the Table. I’ll be trying all these new too, and I am going to update my Menu Plan Monday post for next week each time I try one of the recipes, including a photo and a review. That’ll get me motivated to be creative in the kitchen, since I’ve fallen into a rut the past few weeks, and maybe it’ll give you some ideas for fun new things to try too.

For this week, here’s what I *think* we’ll be eating:

Monday: Turkey & cheese paninis – did I tell you I got a panini press with some of my birthday money? I love it! We’ll have veggie chips too – we’re all about going simple tonight.

Tuesday: Chick-Fil-A again! <3

Wednesday: Chicken taco soup. It’s a slow-cooker recipe, again, following the theme of simplicity I so dearly love, PLUS it’s pretty low-fat/healthy, depending on how much sour cream and cheese you use.

Thursday: Leftover soup!

Friday: Buffalo chicken tenders & sweet potato fries

Saturday: I think we’re going to the pumpkin patch with friends earlier in the day, so I’m trying to think of a good fall recipe to try… still searching!

Have a great week!! I have another giveaway this week involving CHOCOLATE, by the way. :)
