Menu Plan: Fall Weather

Don’t miss Menu Planning Central’s Mega Sale! The fall menu planning resources bundle is 90% off. Sale ends October 3, 2011.

I’m so thankful we’re getting a “cold” snap this week in Florida. I’ve decided that anything below 80 degrees is considered cold here, so I’m going to take avantage of it and make a few of our favorite fall recipes this week.

Speaking of fall, did you know you can cook  a pumpkin in a crock pot? With canned pumpkin prices going up this year you’ll definitely want to read my crock pot pumpkin tutorial! Fresh pumpkin tastes much better than the canned stuff and cooking pumpkin in a crock pot is pretty easy!

  1. Looks great! I’m on the hunt for a good pumpkin donut recipe, so I’ll be sure to stop back to see your recipe!
    I’m stopping by from MPM!

  2. Fantastic Photos. I like how you have a lunch list. I plan our breakfasts and our lunches so I have to think as little as possible.

    Beautiful blog!

  3. Your menu looks great. I am going to give the bee rocks a try!

  4. Yum. I’ve been making all sorts of pumpkin stuff, too. Today’s “Must Try Monday” feature is Pumpkin Pancakes…very similar to your recipe. They turned out really good. I hope you liked yours, too.

  5. Yummy looking food Happy!

  6. Pictures look fabulous! I’m signing up so I can see when you post the pumpkin donut recipe. The bee rocks look interesting, too. Have you tried sending them in as a school lunch? I thought if I warmed one and wrapped it in aluminum foil that it might stay warm until lunch.
