Free Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List – 10/21


We went all things PUMPKIN this week instead of our regular meal plan – I suppose I’ll probably need to add some additional meals to my actual meal plan for the family, but who can resist the lovely taste of pumpkin in the fall?!  And, this comic still makes me laugh.

Below is an excellent tutorial to make your own pumpkin puree in the slow cooker, but I know sometimes it’s just plain easier to buy canned pumpkin.  No judgement, I promise!  Save on Libby’s Canned Pumpkin with this new printable coupon and use it (or homemade pumpkin) on these delicious pumpkin recipes:
