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

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)

https://www.samsclub.com/p/steak-eze-thin-sliced-sirloin-beef-steak-42oz/165128?xid=plp_product_1_6

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.

What are you eating this month??

Labor Day Weekend Workout, Family and Smoking?

Surprisingly smoked pork is not as horrible on the calorie count as you may think it would be for being pork and as flavorful as it is! Still trying to get the hang of vlogging and how to incorporate our daily activities and how to share both vlogs with everyone—We want to make our weigh loss goals something interesting to follow along with. Plus Jessie does her first on camera weigh in as well—how is that for vulnerability.  Jason starts love hate relationships with the elliptical continues!!
