Menu Plan September 10-16

I'm so thankful for the cooler fall temperatures we've enjoyed around here this weekend. We got a bit of rain which no doubt helped bring the temperatures down. This kind of weather puts me in the mood to bake and cook! I'm going to try to get ahead on some freezer cooking this week in addition to our regular meals. To do this, I'm going to rely on some crockpot meals to free up my kitchen time. I love being able to throw ingredients into the crockpot and go on to other things!

So, do you like to cook ahead and freeze meals or specific dishes? My favorite thing to make and freeze are pizza crusts so I can make quick and easy lunches. Here's my post on my frozen pizza experiments if you want to see how I do it.

Now on to this week's regular dinner menu:

Savory beef sandwiches (crockpot), crispy potato wedges

Chicken tater tot casserole (crockpot), green beans

Cheeseburger rice, broccoli

Greek chicken pasta, cauliflower

Red beans and rice with sausage (crockpot)

Grilled pork chops, Parmesan zucchini

Pizza soup, garlic bread

  1. Always love reading your weekly meal plans! It gives me inspiration for the week before I grocery shop. :)

  2. I'm so jealous!! Our "Fall" Temps are still at 90°F!! We don't truly cooler weather until November, and then, mostly at night. I'm so looking forward to soup!
