October Menu Plan: 2015

It’s hard to believe that October is upon us. Very soon it will begin to cool off and fall will be sweeping in. The weather men are beginning to make comments about a “harsh winter.” While I’m not looking forward to that, I am looking forward to warm soups, comfort foods and everything pumpkin flavored. Our October Menu Plan certainly offers plenty of the comfort food.

My ideas of comfort foods are ones that remind me of my childhood- Chicken Pot Pies, Meatloaf, Beef and Noodles, and Mom’s Homemade Apple Crisp. We’ve got each of those this month. What comfort foods do you enjoy?

We have many readers asking for all of the Monthly Menu Plans and the Printable pages to be in one location. So, we put them all together on a special page for everyone. Grab over 3 years worth of Budget Friendly Recipes and Menu Planning Tips too!
