Menu Plan Monday: Nov 1st

Happy November!

The weather is finally cooling down, we've got our massive candy stash laid in and it's really feeling like Fall now:)

Meals last week went very smoothly. We all absolutely loved the red beans and rice! As The Princess would say about a successful new meal, "put that one on the list!" We also liked the 20 garlic slower cooker chicken. The flavor was very good, although I think I let it cook a little too long and it was pretty dry. The onions and garlic cloves that cooked with it were delicious~I mashed several of the garlic cloves into our potatoes and they were SO good I could have made my meal out of them.

This week I'm sticking with my plan to eat at least one meal of beans. I'm trying a new bean soup with Northern beans. The plan is to expand our *bean meal* repertoire past pinto beans:) I'm also trying a new chicken enchilada soup recipe. I love to eat that, but have never made it before. Do you have a favorite version? Tell me!

Monday: Susan Branch's Bean Soup with cornbread
Tuesday: Steak & Potato Scallop with salad and a veggie
Wednesday: Chicken Enchilada Soup
Thursday: {out on field trip}
Friday: {Small Group} Chicken & Wild Rice Dressing
Saturday: Leftovers and Snacks (probably...)

Happy cooking to you this week!

That chicken and rice sounds mighty good. I love wild rice too. :) They're nutritious and has lots of fiber.
