A couple of you have asked how I work on my menus – I do so on a seasonal basis. What I’m posting today is my early autumn menu plan, and sometime in November I may change it up a bit with a late autumn plan that takes me into early wintertide and so on. I enjoy cooking with the changing seasons because we enjoy eating seasonally – much to my husband’s chagrin, there is no chili in the summer – I simply cannot do it! I list several meal choices on my seasonal plan, and then weekly, I choose the meals from that plan that I will prepare for the week. I always, always keep a few panic meals in mind as I build a seasonal plan – something that everyone seems to like and something that can be prepared with the staples I keep stocked in my pantry. What I don’t list on my seasonal menus are breakfast and lunch choices. Maybe I should include those on the big plan??? I do list them on my weekly menu plan, but not on the seasonal one.
