As October rolls in, you can’t help but notice those gorgeous leaves changing colors and that cool, crisp air setting in. It’s pumpkin spice season, and apple picking is calling your name. October is all about cozy comfort food and embracing those fall flavors, making it the perfect time to get into meal planning.
We’re diving headfirst into the deliciousness of October, crafting a meal plan that’s all about savoring the best of this season. We’re talking hearty soups, savory stews, and sweet treats that are perfect for Halloween vibes. So, let’s dig into the world of October meal planning and make the most of this enchanting time of year, one tasty bite at a time!
You guys loved our September Meal Plan, so we’re back again with another month of meals pre-planned. This October meal plan is packed with warm, hearty meals just in time for sweater weather. Or perhaps, just in time for yearning for sweater weather. You just need to do the cooking! And the shopping. And the cleanup. We can only do so much, okay!
You know the deal, when it comes to our meal plans you’ll get four meals per week. Fill in the rest of the meals with leftovers, takeout, and our easy pantry or freezer meals.
Last month I included breakfasts to make ahead and freeze each week. This month I’ll be including lunches you can make ahead for the week.
