Meal Planning & Sales 10/9 – 10/15


October 10, 2013 by Lauren

Ooh, fall!  That means it’s time for slow cooked meats, all day stews and squash!  It also means some shelf stocking sales.  I’ll be out for all of the week but will probably make some shredded pork to leave with the boy.

*note: these deals are for Denver and Northern Colorado in general.  Besides meat and dairy, most everything else is usually a national sale so check your own circular.

My Meal Plan:

  1. Butternut Squash Soup – I’ll use the same recipe for my rigatoni (I’m actually making this tonight), but I’ll add a lot more chicken stock to thin it out.  I think I’ll even add some curry and maybe some toasted/candied pumpkin seeds for crunch!  Or just croutons.
  2. Shredded Pork – Pork shoulder is made for this application.  I’ll leave taco fixings in the fridge to the boy doesn’t starve while I’m away.

Before you know it, it’ll be winter so enjoy this fall season now.  Fresh apple cider, brisk cold walks and nights where you can still (kind of) leave your windows open.
