Weekly Menu October 10-October 16


Last week’s feature recipe, Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins, was a delightful taste of fall.  Quick and easy to bake, the girls helped to create these yummy muffins.  Be quick about grabbing one, my three littles snarfed them up saying they tasted just like pumpkin pancakes. This week, I’ll use the mini muffin tins that way the girls can pack them in their lunches. Thank you, Erin from My Fling With Food your delicious recipe was a hit.

Our menu for the second week in October has some delicious crockpot recipes, family favorites and a prelude to Halloween.  With a request from my “little pumpkins”, chili and pumpkin pie soup will make it to the table.  Chicken pot-pie, one of my husband’s favorite meals, will be cooked in the crockpot then topped off with a Trim Healthy Mama pie crust (page 137 of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook) right before dinner.  Our mouthwatering Halloween treats this week are Haunted Taco Tarts.  Trim Healthy Mama Pie Crust (page 323 of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook) will be the casing, with cheese and a ground turkey mixture inside the tarts.  Make sure to follow my blog to see how they turn out!


My feature recipe this week is Pumpkin Pie Soup! Creamy, rich and savory flavors combine together for this heavenly fall soup.  Attached is the recipe I created last year.


Delicious Pumpkin Pie Soup is cooking away in our crockpot! The savory aroma is amazing! A bit of inspiration hit last night; I threw the sweet potatoes in the crockpot to cook overnight. Set on low for 8 hours the potatoes were buttery soft by morning. All I had to do, this morning, was blend all the ingredients together and pour in the crockpot. One less step for yummy pumpkin soup!
