October Menu Plan

As I worked on updated last year’s October Menu Plan from last year, to make sure all the recipes were up to date, I reflected on how much I love this menu. It’s definitely one of my favorites because it includes the right mix of meal types–chicken, beef, seafood, pork, and veggie meals, mixes in seasonal foods and includes a good mix of last minute meals, slow cooker meals and dinners that require a little extra prep-time.

Enjoy the October meal plan for your family dinners!
