Tis the season! The season to dive into all things pumpkin. And apples. And soups. And stews!
And Halloween costumes! My kids are getting old enough to be able to pick their own (within reason) and it’s fun to see their personalities come through in their choices. I mean, sure, I’m probably going to have at least 1 out of the 4 of them want to be a fireman or a policeman, but it’s fun to see them express themselves. We’re a long way off (it feels) from the year where I just had a 6-month-old dress like a puppy because that was the one costume I had!
For my family, we have a tradition of having chili on Halloween night. Right before you put on your costume and head on out and ask for candy, you gotta eat a bowl of chili. It might be not be my kid’s absolute favorite, but they eat it pretty well! So that’s on my menu plan for October 31st!
Anyway….a new month means a new monthly menu plan! 31 tasty and easy meals to start your October on the right foot.
