It’s October! All year, I write and read recipes that are just so October. In fact, in my mind, there are two months that have specific recipes, October and December. Some things just are October foods. This week, we’re using the slow cooker, making soup, using all of our tortillas in the package (but in two different recipes) and incorporating pumpkin in both a pasta dish and a cake. Let’s dig into October…
Day 1: My Sausage and Corn Chowder is hands-down, without a doubt, my family’s very favorite soup. Period. It’s so simple and very versatile. You can use a pork sausage in this recipe or switch it up and use a chicken or turkey sausage…whatever please you. You will LOVE this soup!
Day 2: Leslie’s Mexican Casserole is a great One Pound supper. My friend Leslie made this for us one night and now, I continue to make it over and over again. Feel free to substitute ground chicken or turkey for the ground beef. This is a wonderful make-ahead meal too. Just keep the casserole in the fridge until you’re ready to pop it in the oven.
Day 3: Boneless Pork Ribs are a 2 ingredient slow cooker supper. Yes, only two ingredients! Talk about an answered prayer to a busy mom’s schedule!
Day 4: Sausage-Pumpkin Pasta is one of those October recipes I was talking about. We love, love, love this dinner! Trust me, you will love it too…I promise :).
Day 5: Crock Pot Chicken Tacos are a great way to end your week (and use up your leftover tortillas from Day 2!). Simple, quick, yummy…perfection for busy nights.
My Bundt Cake #59: Pumpkin Spice Latte is my absolute favorite bundt cake (and I have made 100 of them!). I can hardly wait until fall when it’s time to make this. It’s moist, it’s full of cinnamon and goodness, you will love it too! Make this one. Like today!
Candy Corn Cupcakes are such a fun way to celebrate Halloween! And this recipe is so simple too! Your kiddos will think these are so much fun!
Scarecrow Treats are like the best things ever! It’s part blondie, part Peanut Butter Krispies Treat, part Neiman Marcus Bar, and just plain fabulous! This is the kind of bar both grown ups and kids alike will love!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
