Meal Plan Monday Post - October

It's the last monthly round up of the meal plan. Things got a little switched around at the end of the month and I can't remember how things ended up so some days are omitted. It's nice to look back and see how much we're able to do and still incorporate date nights. We've really gotten into a good flow with meal planning and fixing dinner. Our CSA at Brinkley Farms is instrumental in making this happen! In October yummy fall greens like kale and chard finally started showing up.
