This week’s meal planner includes a recipe a slow cooked apple cider pot roast and some Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes!
Well, this week is (get ready) National Boston Cream Pie Day on October 23, National Chocolate Day on October 28, and National Oatmeal Day on October 29th. And we are CELEBRATING.
I have a great fall recipe line-up for you that includes recipes for all of those things, plus a few more!
If you want some color commentary on why I picked what I picked, it’s underneath this week’s recipe line-up…but first, here come the meals I picked for you this week!
As usual, I’m not giving you a recipe for all seven days of the week, because I’m a firm believer in taking a day or two off from the kitchen. This will also give you the chance to work in some of your own favorites – or just do takeout!
And you can always find our previous menus here, in case you want to mix things up! Okay, here goes!
Main Meal Two
Tender seared scallops team up with sweet apple slices and chopped walnuts for this easy and elegant seafood supper!
Main Meal three

Main Meal four

What’s For Dessert?
All the wonderfulness of traditional Boston Cream Pie, but in cupcake form! Make this easy recipe for Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes for someone you love.
Okay, here comes the color commentary!
Let’s start with that dessert up there , which covers both Boston Cream Pie and chocolate, in the form of Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes. Yep, you get your own personal little Boston Cream Pie…or two!
My ode to seafood this week also works in some of those sweet local apples that are all around us. Scallops with Apples is a light and lovely seafood supper that cooks up in a jiffy.
Want a winner, winner chicken dinner? Fried Parmesan Chicken combines two of your favorite chicken taste sensations!
More in a taco kinda mood? (That is the most frequent kind of mood in our house.) Stuffed Taco Potatoes are a mashed-up of baked potatoes and tacos and they are always popular when they go on the menu around here.
This week’s light meal is one you can have for breakfast – or breakfast for dinner if that is your thing. It’s a Chai Spiced Oatmeal, and it will warm you up inside and out.
Happy Cooking, and see you Monday with another new recipe!
Love, Kate 💕
