This Weeks' Menu (Partial)

So happy that fall is here! We were definitely hitting the point in the kitchen where we needed some inspiration - and then bam! cooler weather arrived and the comfort foods started sounding oh-so good! This week we brought back some fall favorites for dinner! Has to be a simple week since things are little rushed in the evenings and we definitely take advantage of our left overs if it really hits the spot. If not, we would typically freeze the leftovers.

Sunday Dinner: Skillet Burgers (aka Homemade Sloppy Joes)
I reduce the amount of mustard in this recipe down to a just a smidge because it is not my favorite flavor and if you use the amount called for - it really stands out
Monday Lunch: Left Overs from our Cheesecake Factory Date Night on Saturday (Garlic Noodles w/ Chicken)
Monday Dinner: Meatball Subs
(spaghetti sauce with frozen meatballs (thought about doing this recipe for homemade meatballs - BUT like I said it's a busy week), sub sandwiches brushed with garlic powder, Italian seasoning spices blended into melted butter and toasted before adding the meatballs and serving)
Tuesday Lunch: Left Over Skillet Burgers
Tuesday Lunch: Leftover Meatball Subs - maybe add spaghetti for a side
(they were a big enough hit to do again! - plus we still have two pieces of sub bread left)
Wednesday Lunch: Leftover Meatball subs - or spaghetti with meatballs since we will be out of the bread
Wednesday Dinner: Left Over Skillet Burgers

Rest of the week - undecided - I am more of a cook on a whim type person so it is hard to plan out too far. But I was hoping to do maybe a crock pot meal for dinner - so maybe something chickeny - like Creamy Broccoli Chicken over Rice, Chicken & Noodles, or Angel Chicken (some new recipes to try out!)

Snacks: Kettle Corn - We are on our THIRD batch of this so far! So good! Though I reduced the amount of salt to just a sprinkle and increased the sugar by another 2 tablespoons. So 4 tablespoons in the popper before things get popping and then another table spoon after the kernels start popping!

Any favorite fall recipes to share? Link them in the comments! I'd love to add them to my list of new recipes to try!
