I’m sure you’ve noticed the pumpkins.
The pumpkins that are in everything and on everything and around every corner you turn.
Well, maybe I do like pumpkin more than I want to admit!
The game changer was the pumpkin puree. The kind that comes out of a can at the store is not so appealing. But homemade pumpkin puree from a REAL pumpkin? YUM!
Surprisingly (or not) you won’t find any pumpkin-y dishes in this month’s meal plan. You will see more soups and hearty dishes which go well with the cooling weather.
If you are a huge fan of pumpkins, feel free to make a change in the meal plan for a delicious pumpkin dish! You can even serve it up straight by roasting it like you would an acorn squash.

- Even though every meal is listed as a new recipe, many meals use up leftovers from a prior meal to ensure nothing goes to waste. Be sure to keep that in mind when you make any changes to the meal plan.
