Menu Plan Monday for October 13
Wow, has it been awhile since I posted a menu plan! A warm, partly cloudy, breezy autumn day here in northern New England. This week will involve quite a bit of cooking (and eating) because our church's missions conference runs from Friday through Sunday. Here's my menu plan:
MONDAY: Chicken Pot Pie, Stuffing, Squash, Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce
THURSDAY: Apple Glazed Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Asparagus Stir-fry Vegetables
FRIDAY: (invited out to dinner)
SATURDAY: (company for breakfast) menu yet to be determined. It will either be: Egg Brunch Bake, Hash Brown Casserole, muffins, and morning orange drink (sort of like orange julius) OR Blueberry French Toast, homemade sausage, bacon, and morning orange drink.
Saturday evening we are having an international supper at church. I will probably bring Venezuelan Rice & Black Beans, some sort of salad, and Bavarian Apple Torte.
SUNDAY: either leftovers, or Lentil Soup and Cornbread
After the evening service there will be a pie fellowship at church. I will bring 2 pies but haven't decided yet what they will be. Probably one will be some variation on apple pie. The other may be my famous "Reese's Pie" which features chocolate and peanut butter.
If you would like to see menus which others have shared, head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie and check out the links. Usually close to 200 people -- sometimes many more! -- share links to their weekly menus. You'll find some great ideas and often recipes too.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
