Fall is here! Yay for sweater weather, trips to the orchard and pumpkin patch, and the smell of burning leaves! Inspired by the chill in the air and the gray skies, I was craving soup and crock pot dinners when writing the meal plan this week. You'll notice that I've only planned meals through Wednesday, with leftovers on the menu for Thursday. On Thursday, only my husband and youngest daughter will be dining at home. No meals planned for the weekend either, because I won't be here. My husband and I are going away together! My in-laws are coming to stay with our children and it's a safe bet that they will spoil them with pizza and McDonald's. Because the meal plan is short this week, and the links are provided below to all of the meals in my archives, I am only including the grocery list for Wednesday's dinner, Korean Short Ribs.
Here's the plan:
Monday September 27th
Zippy Chicken Soup or Spicy Black Bean Soup
Tuesday September 28th
Spaghetti and Meatballs (using these meatballs from my freezer and spaghetti sauce from a jar).
Wednesday September 29th
Slow Cooked Korean Beef Short Ribs
Thursday September 30th
Friday October 1st-Sunday October 3rd
This cook is off duty!
Grocery List (for Short Ribs)
4 to 4-1/2 lbs. beef short ribs
beef broth (It's only 1/4 cup. You can use water too.)
Now I need some help planning my meals for the next week. On our getaway, my husband and I will visit Cape May, Atlantic City, and Philadelphia. Any suggestions for good eats in these places? They don't have to be fancy : ) Thanks!
