MMC - 30 Minute Menus October 26

It is starting to get cold here - I just love Fall with the nip in the air! The menus this week reflect my feeling that food should make you feel warm (even if it isn't warm outside) so you will find several fiery-hot dishes other than chili to give you some 'warm-up' ideas.

I hope you have a fun and happy Halloween! How will you treat your goblins? Take a look at some of the things I will be doing on my web site,

I have started a new feature on my web page - 30-Minute Complete Menu Plans. I am creating Complete Menu Plans using the 30-minute menus from this blog:
  • The Complete Menu Plans give you recipes and step-by-step instructions for preparing the complete meal (not just the entree as most meal plans do) in 30 minutes - flat!
  • I even include a grocery list to save unnecessary trips to the grocery store.
  • These are eComplete Menu Plans so you can purchase the menu plan now and use it for dinner tonight!
  • You won't have to spend your precious time thinking of menu ideas and then looking up the recipes - I will send it all directly to you!
  • You can purchase a Complete Menu Plan for the introductory price of .25 each.
  • If you have found my 30-minute menus helpful, then you must check out the 30-Minute Complete Menu Plans!

You will find that I use several cooking methods, mix and match, to get dinner on the table quickly! You can always substitute your favorite from-scratch recipes when you have more time.

I hope you have a great week!
