A month usually full of frosty starts and dark nights. The time of hibernation is setting in, so winter warming breakfasts, bonfire night bakes and easy slow cooker evening meals are usually on the menu in our house. As always I try to keep the menu plan as seasonal as I can (UK based). I’m definitely craving apples. toffees, oats and winter greens so I think this menu plan has been created around some of these cravings!
If you’re new to my meal plan posts then welcome and here is a brief lowdown on how my monthly posts work; I try and feature most of my meal plan for the month on my Pinterest board and other recipes that I look at on here. It isn’t a complete set of monthly meals as I’m guessing that we all have a bank of family meals that we regularly make and so just need inspiration for a few days a week. I find it really helps me to be more creative with our meal planning, finding recipes to produce a Pinterest board each month that is mainly seasonally inspired. I like to include breakfast, lunch and evening meal ideas and some side dishes, with desserts and bakes also added in.
