Annual Mid October Meal Plan

It’s funny now we are such cyclical beings. I gravitate towards needing to have some order this time of year and having the meal plan for each day figured out through the end of the month seems to provide a decent amount of stress relief (and in the year of 2020 the less stress the better am I right?) so here I am again. Without further adieu here is our Mid October through Halloween Meal plan for 2020!

Another Mid Month Meal Plan

We have had a really great 1st half of October– boy is the season already flying by! Having a meal plan really did help these last few weeks- not gonna lie we did still skip some meals (never got around to that breakfast casserole) and ate out a few unplanned times- but we did leagues better than we have been doing so it is baby steps back into the right direction. I tend to have an easier time meal planning this part of the year I guess simply due to routine and types of foods in my repertoire fitting better in this “season”- So here we go— I am filling in the rest of October!!

What we plan to eat for dinners October 13th- 31st:

13th Sunday- Steak and potato wedges with a yummy Bacon Feta Pasta Salad

14th Monday-Chicken Fajitas

15th Tuesday- Sloppy Joes and Fries

16th Wednesday-  Chicken Bacon and Veggie Skillet- Skillet Meals page 148 – We found this great book thanks to some of our favorite vloggers (Jambeauty89 and TylerTravelsTv)

17th Thursday- Connors award at Council Meeting- Pizza Night

18th Friday Home Game Higley- Cabbage Soup http://www.farmsteadchic.com/paleo-whole30-cabbage-beef-soup/ Its a Friday Night MARCHING BAND with football in the background night 😉

19th Saturday- Williams Field Show —Easy Skillet Lasagne

Coyote Pride Marching Band’s next competition where they will be showcasing their 2019 show Weathering the Storm–BTW they took 1st place in their division at the 2019 Rainer Classic last weekend

20th Sunday-  Date Night- Mac Powell and the Family Reunion Concert

We LOVE Third Day–and saw them in concert numerous times in the last 2 decades–now that Mac Powell has a new band we are excited to see them play (although we know it simply won’t be the same if its not Jesus music like we are used to)

21st Monday  Peanut Chicken with Eggrolls and Noodles

22nd Tuesday- Air Fryer Wings and Rings

23rd Wednesday  Dirty Rice with ground turkey

24th Thursday- Pizza Night

25th Friday- Home Football Game (Williams Field)- Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti

 26th Saturday- U of A band Day – Heading down to Tucson for the day to see marching bands from all over the state compete–its a very exciting trip!

27th Sunday- Steak Sammies and corn on the cob and pasta salad

I think this is the only repeat meal from last month (aside from Pizza nights) I LOVE these sammies.

28th Monday- Families take the field band BBQ- The BPO does a cook out and invites families to “take the field” and try to march–it’s a fun night and out very last one *sniff*

29th Tuesday- GAMMAGE NIGHT Anastasia- we tried eating out last month on Gammage night and it got us there later than we usually do and parking was a nightmare so we will slurp something down at home before heading over. I really wish this show was not 2 days before Halloween–its CHRISTMAS show in my mind–oh well.

Creamy Tortellini Soup and garlic bread

30th Wednesday Peanut Satay Stir Fry- Skillet Meals Page 179 (same book as above)

31st Thursday– HALLOWEEN!!  Chili and Mummy Dogs- It’s a TRADITION!!
