On The Menu Week Of October 31st
Need ideas for dinner this week? I have 7 scrumptious dinner menus and 35 delicious recipes just for you! Main dishes, side dishes, salads, soups, breads, desserts, and great tips and ideas for making every meal its best! Here's what's On The Menu week of October 31st.
This week’s menu is quite hearty and filled again with wonderful fall flavors! I’m going to cook a mini Thanksgiving this week. No not the whole meal but a turkey breast and a very yummy Thanksgiving-inspired side dish! Here’s what’s on the menu week of October 31st…
What an absolutely gorgeous, easy recipe for a weeknight and I think it is even company worthy! This scrumptious main dish is WW friendly and GF! Thanks, Katerina at Diethood!
Have you made Nani’s Sauteed Rice yet? It’s a staple in our home and goes so wonderfully with chicken dishes! But we make it with most meats.
If you aren’t making this give it a try! It is really special and delicious!
I get done working a bit later on Tuesday so I need a meal that is either frozen or that I can put together quickly!
These easy quesadillas will be perfect! A big thank you to Dashing Dish!
Today we are having a mini Thanksgiving dinner! I don’t make a turkey breast very often and I should! They are easy to roast and are so so good. And a turkey breast offers great leftovers. Plus my favorite thing, a carcass for soup!
A big thank you to Sara at Dinner At The Zoo!
The Brussels sprouts and butternuts squash side dish would be perfect for Thanksgiving. Beautiful recipe from Julia’s Album!
I love make-ahead gravy! I’ve been making a big batch for several years now. I usually pour all the Turkey pan drippings sans the grease into the make-ahead gravy and it is heavenly! And the gravy is done!
- ROASTED TURKEY BREAST WITH GARLIC AND HERBS
- MASHED POTATOES
- MAKE AHEAD TURKEY GRAVY
- ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUT, CINNAMON BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH DRIED CRANBERRIES AND PECANS
Our family loves chili! I have Thanksgiving on my mind so I am making a vat of chili, having it for tonight’s dinner, and freezing the rest for lunches for all of our stay-over family!
I’ll also make an extra cornbread and freeze it too.
We love to serve chili “bar style”. We set out bowls, spoons, and lots of toppings like nachos, cheese, sour cream, jalapeno peppers, onions, and the kitchen sink. LOL!

I loved Stuffed Acorn Squash SOOOOOO much that I am reprising it again this week. It was a HUGE hit at StoneGable. We are having family here at the Tanglewood house for the weekend and I can’t wait to make this recipe for dinner!
If you make one thing this week, this should be it!
I’m very excited about tonight’s dinner. The chicken with the wine sauce looks so so good! And I love everything that is made in a skillet. Yum! Thanks, Tricia at Saving Room For Dessert. I love your foodie site!
I’m a girl who loves a good sauce! However, so many sauces call for heavy cream. And if you are watching what you are eating, heavy cream can be too high in calories and fat.
I found a way to make a sauce that tastes like you used heavy cream! Here the easy recipe: Use no-fat Greek yogurt and a splash of evaporated milk in lieu of cream. I use Greek yogurt in a 1-1 ratio to cream and add a couple TBS evaporated milk to the sauce to thin it out a bit. It is delicious! And creamy and hardly any points at all! I hope you will give it a try!
Aren’t these pork chops dreamy good? I have made them before and just like all of Christina’s recipes at Eatwell 101, they are fantastic!
I think these pork chops would be tasty over noodles, but since I’m GF we will be eating it over rice.
- GARLIC PORK CHOPS IN CREAMY MUSHROOM SAUCE
- RICE (leftover from Thursday)
- SERIOUSLY BEST BROCCOLI OF YOUR LIFE
SWEET TREAT OF THE WEEK…
I’m so excited to make my friend Ann’s Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Skillet Cake! Doesn’t that sound delicious? Bobby loves snickerdoodle anything and I feel the same way about pumpkin. Sounds like a marriage made in heaven, if you ask me!

Man! I thought last week could not be topped, but you have done it! I can’t wait to make the brussels/butternut squash recipe and the pork chops.
But Yvonne, where oh where is your stuffed pumpkin?? I can’t find it in the recipe section, and I keep looking for it On the Menu…please help because the recipe I printed off last year got trashed!
I love OTM…love it. Thanks.
Thanks, Linda! The post for the baked pumpkin had a tech glitch and was destroyed. I’ll repost it next year.
