It’s officially Fall!  The weather is changing.  The leaves will start turning colors.  It can’t be denied: Fall is here.  Yay for cozy sweaters and apple picking and pumpkin decorating and football games.

We’re settling into a good routine with school and life and that is oh so nice!  It’s nice when you can wake up and generally know what will happen that day.  That’s what I like about fall.  Predictability.  And nice weather!

Menu planning also helps me have a predictable day.  When I have a plan for dinner, life is less stressful.  And less stress is always a good thing!  Here’s a menu plan that will help you – use ours as it is or use it just as a starting point!

It’s okay if you don’t like these recipes or these ideas – make your own!  Just open the Excel version, delete what you don’t want and keep what you do want!  I have a menu plan that works for my family – you should have one that works for yours!

How can I make this even easier?
To make things easier, when prepping chicken at the beginning of the month, make enough for the other recipes and freeze it for future use.  When making ground beef, brown 2-3 times the normal amount and freeze that. Check out these easy crockpot instructions for bulk cooking chicken and bulk cooking ground beef. It makes it super quick to pull meals together!
