Menu Plan October 28- November 3

And so here we are, at the end of October. Has this month just flown by or what? I realized today that I've done zero Christmas shopping. Zero! And there are only 58 days left! I need to get started!

This week we're hosting a soup supper with friends. Since the weather has turned cooler, it's the perfect time for it. We ask everyone to bring a pot (or crockpot) of soup to share, plus a dessert or bread/crackers or something to drink. We provide little styrofoam bowls and plastic spoons so guests can sample as many kinds of soup as they'd like. I think I'll be making Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup with Bacon.

We've done this before and had a marvelous time of food and fellowship. Most of my week will be spent preparing for the party. So I'm trying to keep my menu plan simple. Here's what I've got planned:

Baked egg rolls, garlic sesame noodles

Broccoli cheddar soup, pretzel rolls

Panko crusted tilapia, Parmesan couscous

Beefy Spanish rice, black bean and corn salad

Stromboli, fries

Soup Supper!


Hope y'all have a great week! For more meal planning inspiration, visit Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday.


  1. I love wild rice soup!!! I haven't had it with bacon before - I'll have to give it a try. Yum!

    1. My family gobbles it up. It does make a big pot, though. The leftovers are really great the next day. You might need to thin it a little with broth or milk.

  2. I second the wild rice with bacon comment, and we are HUGE wild rice fans here. I love the Parmesan cous cous recipe, I am going to have to add that to my list of side recipes to try!

    1. The couscous is SO easy! I love side dishes that don't take up all my time in the kitchen. Hope you like it.
