SEASONAL ROTATING MEAL PLAN FOR FALL – WEEK 3
Finding time to manage daily tasks and meet family responsibilities can be overwhelming. And let’s not forget the added burden of planning and cooking meals every single day. It’s not uncommon to find ourselves stuck in a tiresome cycle of preparing the same dishes week after week. Well, I’ve had enough of that madness! That’s why I took the plunge and crafted a brilliant rotating seasonal meal plan that’ll make your life so much easier. Let’s kickstart the journey with our fabulous Fall rotating menus, complete with a handy shopping list, designed to transform your meal planning experience from chaotic to blissful.
WEEK 3 FALL MEAL PLAN
Sunday: Roasted Chicken
Indulge in a delightful roasted chicken on a cozy Sunday night. Accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes, a side of frozen corn, and biscuits, this heartwarming meal is guaranteed to satisfy all at your table. Best of all, it can be prepared in no time! Any leftovers can be frozen for later enjoyment as a delicious lunch or as a delightful dinner on Monday. Serves 8
Monday: Leftovers or a Quick Recipe
Busy Monday mornings can be overwhelming with school drop-offs and work deadlines. That’s why we recommend two time-saving options: either enjoy the convenience of leftovers from Sunday’s meal or whip up a quick and easy recipe.
Tuesday: Ham & Beans
With just a little bit of planning before heading out in the morning, you can have a piping hot and delicious bowl of ham & beans (The Typical Mom) waiting for you when you get home. The rich flavors are the perfect complement to a simple salad and a crusty slice of homemade Artisan bread. This is the kind of meal that warms you up from the inside out and leaves you feeling satisfied and content. Serves 8
Craving a home-cooked meal? This super easy yet delicious spaghetti dinner with a homemade marinara sauce is the ticket. It’s the perfect mid-week meal that everyone will love, and it takes less than 30 minutes to whip up. Serve it with a simple salad and some toasted garlic bread for a complete and satisfying meal. Serves 4
Thursday: Loaded Potato Soup
It’s soup season and what could be better than a steaming hot bowl of loaded potato soup? It’s not only hearty and delicious, but also nourishing. Among the many soups that we often make in our house, loaded potato soup is always requested. For a satisfying and balanced meal, I like to pair it with toasted bread (leftovers), and orange slices. Serves 6
Friday: Italian Chicken and Broccoli
There’s nothing quite like Italian Italian chicken & broccoli to cap off a long week. This dish is downright irresistible, the flavors are off the chart. Want to take this meal to the next level? Pair it with some Italian cucumbers for a refreshing contrast, or toast up some garlic bread to sop up every last drop of sauce. Serves 6
Saturday: Dine Out or New Recipe
Let’s make Saturdays exciting by mixing things up! We can either go out for a delightful meal or get creative with a brand-new recipe. I would like to try my hand at making homemade pasta or making up a batch of homemade hamburger buns, then find a creative new way to enjoy them.
Dessert: Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Pudding
Indulge in the delightful Pumpkin Bread Pudding, a classic yet flavorful twist on traditional bread pudding. Infused with the warm, comforting flavors of fall. Not only is it a delicious dessert – it also doubles as a scrumptious breakfast, especially when topped with a buttery orange sauce. Serves 8
