Meal Planning Monday #59

I just love mid-October.  If I had to pick one of my favorite weeks of the year, it would be this one.  The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, the pumpkins are on porches and supper is bubbling away on the stove…my birthday is also this week…so that helps make it special too ;).

Celebrate the season with five simple suppers this week and three dessert choices to get your entire family in the mood for fall.
Smith loves broccoli and Kensington loves sausage, so the marriage of this Sausage and Broccoli Cheese Soup just made sense for us.  I used a chicken sausage for the protein (my butcher has it behind the meat counter) but you could omit that altogether and just have a vegetarian soup instead.  Either way, it’s a bowl of happiness.
I love making this recipe for supper!  My Italian Style Chicken and Waffles looks kind of fancy but it super simple to make!!  This is one of Andrew’s favorite ways for me to prepare chicken and my kiddos go crazy for these savory waffles.  Such a fun weeknight meal!
If you’re looking for a great slow cooker recipe this week, try my Spicy Chicken Corn Chowder.  Layer the ingredients, go about your day and then dinner is waiting for you that evening.
I think it’s only fitting that we round out our October menu with my Beer Cheese Joes.  Big flavor, simple supper.
This yummy Sausage and Butternut Squash Pasta welcomes the flavors of fall but won’t take up a lot of your time in the kitchen.  This recipe is a big hit with my kiddos!
Now, you know that my 100 Bundt Cakes are my little babies.  Each one was made with love from my heart.  That being said, out of the 100, one stands out as my absolute favorite (shhhhhh…don’t tell the other 99!).  To me, it’s absolute perfection…especially this time of year….
You need to make this cake.  Like this week.  You can make it un-frosted and serve it as breakfast too :).  Love.  This is true love.

…don’t forget, you can find 14 Easy Halloween Treats on the blog too.  These are perfect for class parties and weekend treats!
