I love fall, so much.
This menu is very fall food focused.
I realize September is already half way over. Therefore, this meal plan is for the next 30 days. I like to double all my recipes for the month and only plan two weeks. So week 1 will be the same as week 3 and week 2 the same as week 4. It seems to save us a bit of money doing it this way. Majority of these meals are crockpot meals. Why? Because I can. Next month might be different, I'll just surprise you.
Side note: a friend from church recommended the Cozi app for keeping schedules and such. I explored it today and discovered they have a meal planning section! You can save all your recipes in the app and then drag and drop the meals when and where you want them for the month. I think I have fallen in love. Other then typing all my recipes into the app, I think it will be a great tool. Plus, it's FREE. Also, an added bonus with Cozi, if you follow flylady.net for your cleaning schedule, it links directly to your Cozi calendar.
I'll quit rambling.
Here are the 13 meals I'll be making this month.
Wait? 13? Yes, on fridays we make homemade pizza and the kiddos get to pick out the toppings then make it themselves.

Meatballs and Gravy
A friend of ours makes THE BEST meatballs and gravy. Anytime I attempt to recreate it, it just never comes close. But here's to trying this version! (raising my mug of coffee)
Ravioli with Pumpkin Sauce
Summer Harvest Soup
Note: I have not made any of these recipes. I love to experiment with different foods and tweak them to our flavor pallet. I'll try to post reviews of some of these as I make them.
13 recipes + 2 pizza nights = 2 weeks worth of dinners
Then repeat for the next 2 weeks.
BAM! One month of dinners.
