Another week of fall inspired Menu Plan!? Yes, please!
This week's menu is yet another Fall inspired meal's menu. I could not sum-up my love for fall produce - pumpkin, butternut and everything in-between in one weekly dinner menu... So I'm here again with few more delicious recipes.
This week's menu plan has 12 recipes. I have tried to include equal number of vegetarian and meat/chicken recipes. Like I always suggest, these recipes can make 4-6 variations of week meal prep. Choose as per your preference.
To use this menu, make stews/soups/sauces ahead. Freeze or refrigerate. Sides can be prepared ahead too. For weekday dinner, just thaw, heat, serve!
I also recommend looking at previous Meal Menus for some mix and match recipe ideas here.
Oh, and don't get surprised if you see few more rounds of fall recipes. Fall obsession you guys! :-)
Wish you all a wonderful weekend!
