Feeding the Four Men - October 2012

Feeding the Four Men - October 2012

It's soup weather!  I've been pulling together menu plans for October and am so excited for soups.  The boys and I just ate the leftovers of Friday night's White Chicken Chili - one of my favorites.

Here's my start to the menu for this month.  It's a work in progress, so check back again!  

Meals marked with an * are my own recipes.  I hope to add them soon.  

Notice I put the desserts on top!  With all the beautiful fall pumpkin flavored baked goods and special dishes on Pinterest, who can resist making a few? 

Carmel Apples - This was an impulse purchase when shopping with my youngest last weekend.  I'll be going back to the old fashion Brach's caramels that I have to melt.
