Next Week's Meal Plan: 5 Family-Friendly Fall Favorites - Next Week's Meal Plan
From The Kitchn - September 16, 2017

The official first day of fall is just around the corner, and temperatures are starting to drop around here, finally giving me permission to cook the cozy cold-weather fare I have been craving since August.This week's meal plan is all about welcoming fall with some of our favorite foods. They are always easy to make and devoured by adults and kids alike.

Welcome to This Week's Meal Plan

Planning my weekly meals is a habit I enjoy. Since I am frequently asked by friends and family what I am cooking for dinner each week, I thought it'd be useful to share my weekly meal plan here. Whether you are just learning to meal plan and looking for a real-life example of how this works or you are an old pro on the hunt for inspiration, here's a peek at how I am feeding my family this week.

Monday: Chili and Cheese Stuffed Baked Potato

My husband requested baked potatoes this week and we are finishing up a batch of chili that made enough leftovers to freeze and enjoy later this month. If the weather is still warm where you are, do not forget you can cook whole russet potatoes in the slow cooker for baked potatoes without heating up the whole house.

Tuesday: Easy One-Pot Chicken Taco Soup

My family loves this chicken soup. It's a tasty twist on Taco Tuesday that requires only one pot and makes the most of chicken breast, canned beans (and tomatoes!), and frozen corn. We serve this with lots of tortilla chips for dipping and the kids call it "dip soup."

Wednesday: Miso-Roasted Vegetable Soba Noodle Salad

Thursday: Ham and Cheddar Lunch Box Muffins

Friday: Sweet Potato, Ricotta & Arugula Flatbread
