30 Easy Meals for the Fall

30 Easy Meals for the Fall | Simple family meals to help you get dinner on the table

With school starting this week, one of the things I've done to get on top of the busy month is plan out 30 Easy Meals. This saves me a lot of thinking time so I can take just 15 minutes to plan the week and make a grocery shopping list. There's a mix of slow cooker meals, cold salads, vegetarian, and meals that work for busy evenings like Back-to-School night.

  1. Green Chile Chicken Casserole and corn
  2. Crustless Italian Spinach Pie and cornbread
  3. Beef Tacos (from the freezer) with corn shells and toppings, brown rice and black beans
  4. Pulled Pork Sandwiches (slow cooker) and salad
  5. Chicken Fajitas, wheat tortillas, brown rice and black beans
  6. Chicken Caesar Salad and garlic bread
  7. Homemade Pizza with veggie toppings and salad
  8. Herb Roasted Pork with baked potatoes and green beans
  9. Scrambled Eggs and Rosemary Potatoes, fruit salad
  10. Shredded Chicken Tacos (slow cooker) with wheat tortillas and toppings, plus black beans
  11. Homemade Spaghetti Sauce and Meatballs (frozen), spaghetti, salad and cauliflower
  12. Spinach and Feta Pasta Salad
  13. Sausage Pesto Pita Pizzas with veggies and dip
  14. Leftovers Night
  15. Turkey Spinach Burgers with sweet potato fries and corn
  16. Corn & Potato Chowder and salad
  17. Taco Cornbread Casserole
  18. Pork Ragu & Fettuccine and broccoli
  19. Pineapple Pork Chops with brown rice and green beans
  20. Leftovers Night
  21. Meatball subs (using frozen meatballs) and salad
  22. Crockpot Italian Chicken (with carrots and potatoes)
  23. Macaroni and Cheese with broccoli and salad
  24. Beef Tacos (from the freezer) with corn shells and toppings, brown rice and black beans
  25. Chicken & Broccoli Lo Mein over wheat spaghetti
  26. Sausage & Veggie Roast
  27. Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad and green beans
  28. Hamburgers with sweet potato fries and corn
  29. Honey Parmesan Pork Roast (slow cooker), baked potatoes and broccoli
  30. Chicken Tortilla Soup (slow cooker) and cornbread

I'm basically following the Themed Menu Plan I mentioned at the beginning of the summer; I tend to stick with Meatless Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, etc. Each month, I pick enough chicken on-sale (my target price is $1.99/lb), a four-pack of pork roasts from Costco, and other proteins as they're on sale. Then I can plan 30 Easy Meals around my family's favorites. Since it's the fall, I've brought back a couple of our favorite soups, and I even threw in three new recipes to try to see if my family likes them.
