My Weekly Menu Plan 10/30/11

It’s really starting to feel like autumn where we live, which makes me happy!  I love the opportunities the chilly weather gives me to get under a warm, fluffy blanket and snuggle up with my family (and a mug of Cozy, Dark Hot Chocolate!). 

I also love all of the seasonal foods of autumn!  We usually eat soup all-year round, but I especially love soup in the chillier months.  This week, I’m making a big pot of my Creamy Pumpkin Soup, and I’m also going to try this Mushroom Soup that Meg shared at Keeper of the Home.  Both are great immunity boosters, which we need right now in our house – there have been a few too many sniffles going around lately!
