Menu 10/3 - 10/9

Sunday, October 2, 2011

The weather is getting chilly and we're finally settling into our fall routine.  I think this is my favorite time of year to cook!  I'm excited about adding soups back onto the weekly menu and also incorporating some apple and pumpkin dishes.

Mom's Breakfast Cake--my husband is substitute teaching for an early morning bible study class my teens attend, so I'm making a double batch of this tried-and-true recipe to help wake the kids up on a Monday morning.

Chicken Noodle Soup--super easy and way better than any soup from a can, I'm excited for the chillier weather we've been having just so I can make this long-time favorite of ours again. 

Tuesday--Pumpkin Chicken Alfredo (new)

Wednesday--Skillet Lasagna--this is a quick and easy weeknight version of lasagna

French Peasant Bread--no kneading and only one rise time, we still include this on our menu at least a couple times a week.  How easy is it?  I've got my 10-year-old trained to whip us up some in 10 minutes flat (not including the rising and baking time). 

Thursday--Brie Stuffed Chicken Breasts (new)

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Fresh Strawberry Frosting-- my favorite cake recipe + one of my favorite icing recipe and I've never tried them together.  This is the week. 

Friday--Caramelized Onion White Chicken Pizza--an old favorite of ours, I love this unique take on the traditional pizza

Saturday--Buttermilk Pecan Waffles--a classic

Walking Tacos
--my kids now think that tacos are meant to be eaten out of a chip bag.  These are fun, fun, fun!

Sunday--Chicken Cordon Blue Sandwiches--it's the only way we get to eat chicken cordon bleu on a regular basis! 

Lara's Famous Apple Pie--this recipe has won me several bake-offs over the years and it was one of the first recipes I added to the blog back when it was brand new.  In fact, I'm thinking it may be time to do a picture update on this post.
