Menu Plan – Sept. 30

October is likely my favorite month of the year.  I love the cool nights, warm days, bright colors, yummy foods & fall flavors. 

And, October happens to be the birth month of my adorable little sister.

I say little as an older sister always will, but she’s turning 25 this week, and I can’t believe it.  This also means, I’ve got 4 months until I turn 30.  But, let’s not talk about that just yet. 


Last week, our highlight was a new recipe – a roasted vegetable mac & cheese from Gimme Some Oven.  I’ll be sharing our tweak on this recipe later this week.    


To celebrate the beginning of fall, we made our veggie-filled broccoli cheddar soup.  Tastes like the beloved broccoli cheddar, but better!

As we head into October, here’s our menu plan for the week:

Overnight Oatmeal Waffles, apple topping
Turkey & Mushroom Quesadillas, brussels sprouts {new}
Canadian Bacon & Mushroom Pizza {new}, green beans

To do: Prep dinner for Monday night

Leftover waffles with apple topping

  1. I had to pin that soup, not sure how I missed it on your site! I've tried a few Broccoli Cheddar Soups lately and haven't been too impressed, love the added veggies in yours. Oh and I know the feeling, I turn 30 in March and my brother is 25 (though we have a sister in between). It feels so weird to say I'll be 30!

    1. I had no idea we were the same age!! I've got you beat by a month, so I'll let you know how 30 feels come February :)

  2. Looks yummy and fall-ish!!! It's not that cool here yet - we're getting nighttime temps in the 60s though, so I'm not complaining!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
