Hey guys. So it's officially my favorite time of the month...menu planning time. I guess it's the list maker in me that gets stupid excited over this task. I usually like to share new recipes and whatnot individually when I make them but since it's now starting to get darker earlier, decent pictures of meals aren't likely to happen. So I thought I'd share my menu for October and link you up to things I'm going to try. Now I won't be able to vouch for new things but I tend to stick to what works...and this month, it's comfort food.
October is kind of a busy month for me, what with having the girls here for the Always Bloggy Meet-Up, plus a couple of parties I'm planning, so I'm leaving more than a few spots open. But if you have neanderthal/Kindergarten palates like I do, than you should be able to use this menu and add in whatever staple meals you normally do. Or you can pick and choose. Whatevs. But in the event that you want me to do all the work for you (doesn't happen often, I'm a lazy sonofabitch), then here is my grocery list for these meals. In using this list, I assume you have normal shit on hand like olive oil, salt, brown sugar, cumin, balsamic vinegar, garlic, the powders (garlic/chili/onion), soy sauce and season salt. If not, add it to your grocery list. Ok here we go...
1) Penne with Roasted Asparagus and Balsamic Butter : So, so good
2) Autumn Chopped Salad & Grilled Cheese
4) Ham & Cheese Sliders : Bangin
5th through the 9th OPEN
10) Rice & Beans: One of our fave go-to's
11) Lemon Chicken
13) Breakfast for Dinner: You choose!
14) Velvet Chicken
21st through the 23rd OPEN
25) Chili: I guess I have to admit that we eat the canned stuff...and like it
29) Ham Steak & Pierogies
