Ahhh, October.

The time of year I like to play a little game called…try not to turn on the heat until November 1.

I don’t always love that game, but my wallet does.  😉

One thing that makes winning the game easier is having hearty, steamy foods that warm you up from the inside.


So the meal plan is full of them this time.

2 Week Menu Plan, Meal Plan

Two Week Meal Plan for October

Around here, I like to meal plan 2 weeks at a time.

I hate putting dates to meals (Monday is lasagna, etc.) because inevitably Monday turns into a crumby day and the last thing I want to do is make lasagna.

So now I just make a list and pick the meal that works best each day as I go.

Also, I find a handful of supper ideas a frustrating meal plan.  So I cover all 3 meals, plus snacks!

Here it is…



  • sandwiches (PB&J, lunchmeat, nutella and graham crackers)
  • hard boiled eggs
  • salads
  • leftovers
  • peanut butter or cheese and crackers
  • yogurt or cheese
  • fresh fruits and veggies
  • pudding, cookies, chips, pretzels, or some sort of small treat


  • Sides will include potatoes, rice, pasta, cooked and fresh veggies, and salads
