What a beautiful fall we are having here at the cottage. I am enjoying sitting on my screen porch with some great fall recipes and making these meal plans today. There are so many yummy recipes for this time of the year, there are not enough days to cook them all. I am trying to be budget conscious not only for my food budget, but for some of you out there who are really struggling with a 14 % increase in food cost. I have answered so many folks asking for budget recipes this month. Meal planning will help you on your food budget plus give you more time to spend with your family.

Mississippi Vegetable Beef Soup

  Our delicious soup recipe is a result of left over Mississippi Pot Roast. Some of the best family kitchen recipes come from the left overs or an ingredient exchange of some kind. We have put together a combination of fresh vegetables, some of the left over beef with some great broth to make this outstanding soup. I love soup in any season, but when we get to early fall and winter I love my stews and  soups. This recipe will definitely be on my favorites list.

Welcome to our weekly meal plan and welcome to October! I had so much fun with my Veggie Pod today, just planting some fall and winter greens. We are also planting some beets, turnip greens and collard in our row crop garden. So good to be in the garden again. We are all decorated for fall and now I have fall recipes laying all over my work table. It is great to be looking at the oldie but goodie fall recipes and introducing  some new recipes that we hope everyone will enjoy.
