Monthly Meal Plan – November

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 1, 2010


Oh my. It’s November!

I don’t know why I’m surprised at how quickly every new month comes, but I am!  November brings so much warmth back into the kitchen…I can’t wait to use the slow cooker more, use up some of the last veggies from the farmer’s market (LINK), and of course plan and execute a most amazing Thanksgiving feast!

I’m getting hungry, just thinking about it :)

1- Beef, Mushroom and Barley Soup
2- Chicken and Spaghetti Squash Medley
3- Slow Cooker Spicy Chili
4- Breakfast for Dinner
5- Grilled Taco Pizza
6- Spaghetti
7- Zucchini-Sausage Cornbread (Reader Recipe!)

8- Individual Beef Pies
9- Cuban Black Beans and Rice from The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook
10- Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps (Slow Cooker)
11- Pumpkin Waffles and Scrambled Eggs
12- Brown Rice with Black-eyed Peas and Greens
13- Tacos
14- Leftovers or Sandwiches

15- Tuna Melt Pie
16- Pantry Staples Meal

Oooh…looking forward to seeing a bunch of these recipes! Grilled taco pizza, zucchini sausage cornbread sound awesome, and it will be fun to see what you do for the pantry meal and Bargain Meal! As always, thanks for such great recipes and ideas! :)

I love your meal planning – I have saved so much money doing this –
Meal planning with left overs – using coupons – I save hundreds each month.

Love to you

I am new to monthly meal planning–in fact, November is only my second “go” at it. It worked out so well for October that I just had to keep it up! And both times I used your printables to get me organized. Suh-weet!

You’ll see a few 5 dollar dinners on my meal plan for November!
