The first day of Fall was September 22, but so far the temperatures have yet to reflect it – even here in the north. However, cooler temperatures are most definitely on their way, which means its time for soups and more slow cooker recipes! And this month I introduced a new recipe series for the Instant Pot, which inspired me to create an Instant Pot Monthly Meal Plan as well. So you get two for the price of one. Okay, they’re both free, but still – they’re in one place!
I did leave some of the 15-minute and 30-minute meal options to give you some great options before the weather turns too cold. And, I have kept slow cooker meals on Sundays and Wednesdays and grilled recipes on Friday nights – for the regular menu. If you’d like to switch up some of the Slow Cooker Meals to an Instant Pot recipe, check out my beginners post in the series for a great link to help!
As for the Instant Pot Meal Plan, I have also included some 15-minute and 30-minute meal options there as well. Also, the suggestions for breakfasts, lunches, snacks and desserts are all Instant Pot recipes.
Feel free to move any of the recipes around as needed to fit your family’s schedule. You can even mix and match the two meal plans! There is a variety of meats (fish, chicken, beef, pork) as well as soups and salads (on both plans) to keep the whole family happy. 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.
