Menu Plan Monday: is fall finally here?

It's going to be warm yet rainy here all week, so sort of fall-weatherish.  Even with the high temps I'm going for cool-weather food because I'm tired of warm-weather food!

Monday:  Chicken and black bean chili.  Seems like forever since we've had chili.

Tuesday:  Some kind of curry.   I think I planned one last week but never got around to having it.  Last weekend I picked up some Toovar dal at an Indian market, having a vague memory of a recipe using it.  I found the recipe this morning, but see I am missing some ingredients.  I don't keep tamarind paste around.   I keep telling myself to keep a running list of things like that, but I never remember to! 

Wednesday: Chicken baked with kalamata olives, roma tomatoes, garlic, rosemary, lemon, and red potatoes.

Thursday:   Spaghetti and meatballs, something I had planned to make last week but failed to do.

Friday:   Baked salmon.  Somewhere I have a recipe involving breadcrumbs and dill.  I can find it by Friday. 

Saturday:   There is an Oktoberfest going on next town over.  So maybe we'll eat there.  If not, we haven't had burritos in a while.

During this week I want to spend more time planning.   I think I need to invite someone over for dinner soon!

I'm ready for cool weather food too. It's comforting, isn't it?
Your soup sounds delicious! We homeschool too! I'll be checking back :)

Menu planning is something that I'm horrible at, and I really need to get my act together. You're inspiring and motivating me to do that - I'll let you know how it goes.

And I'm with you - I'm ready for cold weather food, too. I need to dig out my recipe for slow cooker white chicken chili...
