It’s nearly the second half of October, and we are really digging in to fall now.  We have a large variety of fresh apples available to us and so many other fruits and veggies are in season.

At this stage in our lives, I am meal planning 2 weeks at a time.  I usually try to keep it simple, so you’ll often see the same meals repeated on our menus.

Here’s our 2 week meal plan for October.
