ON THE MENU OCTOBER 8TH

We are eating meals with lots of fall-infused flavors, here at StoneGable! Isn’t this acorn squash beautiful? I eat it for lunch! The recipe’s easy! See more fall dishes on the menu this week!

MONDAY

Beef Stroganoff is the most luxurious recipe to begin the week with! Sorry, this is not WW-friendly! I’d rather eat a little bit of scrumptious than a whole bowl of just okay! So I’ll eat the beef and a bit of the delicious sauce.

Vikalinka is a blog that makes me feel like home! I remember so many of these amazing dishes because my grandmother made them too! Thank you Julia for your gorgeous foodie blog! I’m a BIG fan!

TUESDAY

Boneless skinless chicken breasts! Even the words evoke a love/hate feeling from me! I love that they are zero or low points and they can be used in so many great recipes. I hate that they can also be rubbery and tasteless!

It’s all about the way they are prepared. Friends, please top, surround and pile on other ingredients to give chicken moisture and flavor!

A fabulous example of a great boneless, skinless chicken breast filled with scrumptious flavor is on the menu today!

A big, big thank you to Eatwell101 for the lesson in good chicken!

WEDNESDAY

Crab Cakes are a real treat on the menu. And they are so so easy to make. When jumbo lump crabmeat goes on sale I grab a can or two!

I’ll broil them but they can also be panfried. Thanks, Jessica your crab cakes look amazing! See Savory Experiments for this recipe and more!

THURSDAY- SOUP DAY

This is one of my favorite soups! It’s full of those wonderful Tex-Mex flavors and it is so so easy to make. I double the recipe and make a huge pot of it! We eat it for dinner and then freeze the rest.

I feel so good when I have a variety of frozen soups in my freezer.

FRIDAY

Halibut is one of my very favorite fish! Its white flesh and mild flavor make it a winner!

It is a bit more expensive than cod (I love cod too) so when it’s on sale I scoop it up! Thanks, Ingrid from A Cozy Apron!

SATURDAY- COMPANY’S COMING

Tonight I’m having some neighbors over for an easy and delicious fall dinner, Perfect Pot Roast. This recipe is an oldie but goodie recipe and it is good and company-worthy! I’m serving the pot roast over creamy cheesy polenta.

SUNDAY- FOOTBALL DAY

Oh, we LOVE football! And our tradition is to watch our team with some great comfort food!

Don’t miss my Beer Bread recipe! I’ve made it for years! Make sure to save a little to toast for breakfast. That’s my favorite way to eat it!

TREAT OF THE WEEK

I’m not much of a baker but I love to make cookies. And just one cookie with a cup of coffee is the perfect sweet treat for me!

You can make the cookie dough ahead and refrigerate or freeze it in a roll. Then they become cut and bake cookies! So easy!

These cookies are full of fall spice and flavor!

  1. Being a foodie and a planner by nature I love your weekly What’s on the Menu. After purchasing some pretty tasteless and tough boneless skinless chicken breasts I actually stopped buying them. Even slicing them horizontally and pounding them for recipes like chicken parm I still didn’t care for them. Until the last couple of years that is. I now buy only organic chicken. The texture is much better and much more tender. I also wonder what poultry farms are feeding these chickens that make them so huge and tough, and that gives me cause for concern.
