October is upon us. Can you believe we’re heading in to the last quarter of the year! The weather is turning to cooler temps (at least up north here) and leaves are changing colors too. Fall is definitely in the air and so are pumpkins! Which is why I added some pumpkin and fall inspired recipes this month!

October is just a few days away and that means meal plans need to be made! Check out our October Menu Plan - it's downloadable and has clickable links! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

There are a couple of grilled meals still in the menu, but I added more soups and slow cooker meals this month as the temperatures continue to drop and lead us in to Fall. Feel free to move those around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef) and salads to hopefully keep everyone happy. I continued to keep slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays to help with those often busy days and nights. Feel free to pick and choose what works for you and your family or even move things around if you need a slow cooker meal on another day. My hope each month is that you will find some new favorites to add to your own must have rotation. Once again I have included some quick and easy Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dessert ideas to help you throughout the month.
