Fall Back For November Meal Planning

I can’t believe we are moving into our second week of November. Did you all remember to turn your clocks back? It’s been a wet and rainy weekend so far and I went into this month knowing we were going to be having a lot of cold weather meals made from the crock pot and stove top. So a lot of our meals this month will be cooked ahead of time and stored in the freezer or made on the same day. Here’s a look at some of my ideas for the week:


Cinnamon Raisin Muffins (freezer cooking; recipe coming later this week)
Cinnamon Rolls
Oatmeal Packets
(Breakfast Mixes)
Homemade Crock Pot Applesauce (same amount of cooking time on stove but easier when it’s made on a cooking day.)
Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast Casserole (recipe posting later this week)

***Cinnamon Rolls, Pancakes and Breakfast Burritos are all made ahead of time and added to the freezer. I usually make 25 Oatmeal Packets and store some in the pantry and some in the freezer.



Bean and Cheese Burritos (freezer cooking)
PB and Apple Butter Sandwiches
Snacky Lunch (so much healthier than Lunchables)
Chili and Soups

***Leftover Turkey and Cranberry Sandwiches (later in the month)


Crock Pot Shepherd’s Pie with Cornbread and Honey Butter (recipe tested Sunday, results posting later this week.)
Sloppy Joes
Hamburgers, Potato Fries
Mini Chicken Pot Pies
Homemade Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Freezer Cooking and Make Ahead Plan for Stocking The Pantry, Fridge:

So far, this is what I’ve come up with and will be adding more as I am able to:

Muffin Mix Variety
Oatmeal Packets
Pizza Dough
Homemade Bread
Pancake Mix
cooked and Frozen Pancakes
Waffle Mix
cooked and frozen Waffles
Flaky Biscuit Mix
Cornbread Mix
Dinner Mixes (to be discussed later in the week)
Taco Seasoning Mix
Hot Cocoa Mix
Scone Mix
Homemade Chai Tea Mix
Homemade Greek Yogurt
