I’ve been doing quite a bit of cooking and freezing ahead for the month of October…especially because we’ll be hosting several rounds of company this month. I LOVE having company, and I really like to ENJOY my company, which is why making food ahead of time is such a great idea! In a few days, I’ll share pictures of my cooking adventures.
Here are some of the recipes I’ve been working on:
- Turkey Sausage
- Mudballs (made with sunbutter since Malachi doesn’t do peanut butter)
- Double batch of whole wheat tortillas
- Mini Apple Pies and apple pie pockets
- Pancake-Sausage Muffins
- Salad Dressings – Italian, Ranch and Thousand Island

Your menu looks great. Your mini apple pies look so good.
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for sharing this meal plan. And the tortilla link. It looks great!
Okay, I have to ask. How does one make baked oatmeal? Please don’t throw rotten tomatoes at me for not knowing. ;o)
I actually don’t have a recipe for it all figured out…I’m going to work on it and then maybe post it sometime. It kinda bakes up like a coffeecake.
Looks like a great round up of food!
