Menu Plan Monday – October 7


This past week’s menu was taken from 365 Slow Cooker Suppers, a new cookbook by Stephanie O’Dea, who writes the wildly popular blog, A Year of Slow Cooking. The Creamy Pumpkin Pasta above was my favorite dish of the week.  To read more about the cookbook and the dishes I prepared last week, read my review posted yesterday.

This week’s menu is devoted to cleaning out the refrigerator and freezer. I’m going to be doing a lot of pantry and freezer cooking for the next week or two as I need to work down our supplies to prepare for some upcoming house renovations! Yikes!

Here is what is on tap this week:

Monday: Leftover Chicken Pot Pie with a Green Salad

Tuesday: Garden Lentil Bolognese with a Fruit Salad

Wednesday: 21 Ingredient Chili from 365 Slow Cooker Suppers with Shredded Carrot and Raisin Salad

Thursday: Nachos made with Leftover Chili and Roasted Zucchini

Friday: Evening Out

Saturday: Freezer Leftovers

Sunday: Husband’s Birthday Dinner

Have a wonderful week. For more menu planning ideas, go to Menu Plan Monday on I’m an Organizing Junkie!
