October Menu Plan...

Okay, this month is going by in the blink of an eye.  One week from today I'm heading out for a spectacular Vermont vacation for 12 days.  Then I'll only be back for a week and a half before I go out of state for another 4 days.  Because of all this craziness and my work schedule thrown in, I'm planning way out in advance.  I've got to have my grocery list all ready to go BEFORE I got on vacation so I can have groceries delivered the day I get back and cook later that week.  Crazy!  Anyway, I know I haven't done the recipe update from the last group of recipes yet, but I'll be getting to that shortly, I promise :)  I cheated again and took recipes from sources that already had calories figured...primarily Cooking Light and Betty Crocker.  I can't help it...I'm too busy this month...maybe November :)  As usual, new recipes are marked with an asterisk.  Here's what October is going to look like:

Asparagus and Ham Casserole* (250 calories) + Twice Baked Potatoes (250 calories) = 500 calories per serving

Polenta Lasagna* (335 calories) + Garlic Bread (253 calories) = 488 calories per serving

Provencal Beef Stew* (271 calories) + Biscuit (170 calories) = 441 calories per serving

Chunky Potato-Crab Chowder* (265 calories) + Crescent Roll (100 calories) = 365 calories per serving

Impossibly Easy Cheesy Meatball Pie* (370 calories) + Potatoes ala Boulangere (117 calories) = 487 calories per serving

Next up...recipe update!
