Monday Meal Planning, October 24, 2011 Fabulous Fall!

Hi and thanks for stopping by! Last week's menu went well, especially my first cookie trial. I am trying one new cookie recipe a week, leading up to the holidays. Last week I tried Butterscotch Glazed Coffee Shortbread bars. They turned out wonderfully yummy, especially if you like a coffee flavor. They were not overly sweet, and were super easy to make. I will definitely make them again.

This week, I'm looking at recipes to use the wonderful fall produce from our garden. This includes our acorn squash, basil, tomatoes, and potatoes. Also, as the weather gets cooler, I'll be using my slow cooker more, as well, as slow-cooked soups and stews are a fall and winter favorite in our house. I'm still trying to decide my treat for this week, I have a fun cookie recipe as well as something else I'd like to try. Still haven't decided.. but I will soon!

Here is my menu for the week!

Sunday: Grill night (we missed out the other day due to various activities). For the salad, I made a great lemon juice and olive oil dressing, with lots of garlic.

Monday:  Pasta with Red Bean Bolognese Sauce. This is a vegetarian Bolognese sauce with tomatoes, winter squash, carrots, and kidney beans.

TuesdayHarvest Pork Stew 

WednesdaySlow Cooker Pesto spinach Lasagna, made with homemade Fresh Basil Pesto

Thursday: Spinach and Turkey Enchiladas

Friday: Homemade Pizza night

Saturday: Leftovers
