On The Menu Week Of October 17th
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 17th.
Fall here in Lancaster County came right on time this year! For the last few years, fall had a hard time getting itself together so it felt like we were still in the fall season at Christmastime! But not this year! Yay! It’s beautiful and cool-ish and I’m ready to cook some delicious soups and stews and hearty fall food!
The menu this week is varied and tasty and the extra recipes at the end of the post are fall on a plate!
Enjoy this week and make some great, scrumptious food!
Here’s what’s On The Menu for the week of October 17th.
Chicken Piccata is one of my favorite meals. Delicious, lemony, and easy to make. Treat your family to this company-worthy meal.
This scrumptious recipe is from one of my favorite foodie blogs, A Pinch Of Yum.
And the salad on the menu pairs wonderfully with the Piccata.
- LEMON CHICKEN PICCATA WITH GRILLED BREAD
- ARUGULA WITH SHAVED PARMESAN, PINENUTS, AND A LEMON VINAIGRETTE
We are such carnivores here at StoneGable! And we love steak in all its forms! This is such a beautiful recipe! Steak and mushrooms! YUM!
If you can’t find steak tips try using flank steak.
This recipe is from The Kitchn.
- EASY BALSAMIC GLAZED STEAK TIPS AND MUSHROOMS
- HORSERADISH MASHED POTATOES WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS
- PERFECTLY ROASTED ASPARAGUS
Our family was here for a long weekend and my daughter Jacqueline made us this fabulous dinner using the recipes below. This is now one of my very favorite dinners! And guess what… she left the leftovers. Delicious and fresh! A must-try!
You will love this recipe from Recipe Tin Eats.
Have you ever had Bonefish Grill’s Bang Bang Shrimp? If not make reservations tonight and GO!
Really, they are addictive and absolutely scrumptious. My son Christopher and I went to lunch on Saturday and shared a pile of them.
I’m ready for a copycat version I can make at home anytime I want this delicious dish! And I’m thinking I can probably use the recipe to make Bang Bang Chicken!
Thanks, Dinner Then Dessert!
Salmon is a hearty fish that is heart-healthy too. And it is even better when served with a sweet and garlicky sauce! Wild-caught salmon is pricy but so healthy so this is a meal I splurge on! And I am not a fan of Sockeye Salmon I opt for another variety of wild-caught.
I like to cook an easy dinner on Fridays because Bobby and I usually watch a show or play cards or a game. This salmon dinner cooks up in about 15 minutes so it is perfect for a Friday night in.
This yummy recipe comes from Rasa Malaysia.
Pasta is one of my family’s favorite dinners! So we are getting together and Grandma Lo Bianco’s Meatballs and pasta are on the menu.
I make a double batch of these delicious meatballs and freeze them for a quick meal!
Is Sunday dinner still a “thing”? I love having a delicious and filling dinner on Sunday with family and/or friends.
Tonight my best friend is joining us for a delicious and easy baked chicken from one of my favorite foodie blogs. Thanks, Natasha from Salt and Lavender.
- CREAMY BACON CHICKEN
- SOUR CREAM AND CHIVE MASHED POTATOES
- ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH BROWN SUGAR AND PECANS
TREAT OF THE WEEK
Oh YUM! We all love carrot cake! And I especially love this cake because it is made in a 9 x 13 pan! I’m going to try to make it early in the week and freeze it and then thaw it and ice it for our family dinner.
Carrot cake has so many beautiful flavors that feel like fall!
This wonderful treat comes to us from Holly at Spend With Pennies.

Welcome back online! I also just had to get a new laptop. A bit of a new learning curve. The link in the menu this week for carrot cake connects to the bunny bread. Thanks, have a blessed Easter week! Cindy
Yes I missed you. Was so worried something happened to you or your family. Thank God it was only snow and a computer! Terrible at the time but your computer has been replaced and snow melts. Love the menu this week and plan to add the pineapple casserole and the carrot cake to my Easter dinner. Have a beautiful and blessed day on which we celebrate the rebirth of our Lord.
Yes Yvonne I did miss your posts last week!! I thought something happened on my end! So glad you are back!!
You have many of my favorites in your menu this week! Awesome!!! Thank you and have a blessed week!
So glad your back Yvonne!
Hello, Yvonne! I’m glad you were able to get a new computer – we did miss you! All the food you posted and menu has made me very hungry this morning. The chicken gyros look fabulous! Have a great week, I hope it warms up where you are soon. We’re having unusually warm weather where I live, I’ve already had to pack away my winter sweaters.
I’m glad you are back!!! Thank you so much for all the wonderful recipes that you share each week. I feel like I have my own personal meal planner!
The link for the carrot cake takes you to the bunny bread recipe — can you direct me to the carrot cake recipe?
Hi Michelle, Sorry! I fixed it. Gotta love Carrot Cake for Easter!
I KNEW something was wrong at Stone Gable! I am relieved it was just an issue with an inanimate object. I wish you and your family a joyful Holy Week and wonderful expectations for a happy, happy Easter!!! Get those eggs ready!
Yes Yvonne I missed you but more than that I was worried about you. I thought you might be having surgeries on your foot. You were in my prayers! So glad you are okay!
Elaine surgeries are all over… I hope! I had 7 surgeries from Jan 15 to Feb 28th. And worked right through them. I plan to be running around my garden this summer and running after my grandbabies!
So glad all is okay! We have a similar brunch with ham, kielbasa, egg cheese, fresh pineapple, strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar to dip them in, and nut roll. My brother-in-law is Greek and they have a “egg fight” tradition that we adopted. Have a blessed Easter!
Can’t go wrong with a Stone Gable recipe! When I clicked the link for your carrot cake recipe, it led to your darling bunny rolls instead. Could you update the link with the cake recipe instead? Thanks! Have a Blessed Easter!
Sorry about that Margie, I fixed it!
Church first and then the same: ham, potato salad, etc.
I made your Raw Apple Cake recipe this weekend and it was delicious! My husband has now asked me to make it every week! Thanks so much.
So sorry about your computer, I xix wonder if you were alright…glad all is well. I am making your famous Carrot cake for church lunchon Wednesday and know it will be a big hit. Have a good week!
I’m fine! I can’t wait to try the carrot cake too!
Good Morning Yvonne: I am looking forward to trying many of these delicious recipes. I have made lots of them and everyone has loved them. Thank you again.
