Monday thru Friday Slow Cooker Meal Plan for the Fall


In honor of the first Friday in Crocktober, I have put together another meal plan for you. I love the fall, and I of course LOVE Crocktober, but I am beyond relieved that this week is over.

It was a doozy.

next week will be better, though, because I'm going to stick to a game meal plan!

(meatless) Monday: End of Summer Harvest Soup

My eldest daughter turned 12 today. 

Which really can't be correct, because I am nowhere near old enough to have a 12-year-old.

This year she has braces and can't have them, and has requested sushi for dinner. 

I'm pretty sure I can't find a way to make sushi in the crockpot...

have a wonderful weekend! Happy Slow Cooking this Crocktober!

What they say about this article

  1. The Autumn Sausage casserole is one of my FAVORITES! I have yet to make it for anyone else because I make it and gobble it all up myself. SO good! This year, I will make several batches and freeze some of them.

  2. If you do find a way to make sushi in the Crock Pot, PLEASE SHARE. I love sushi but don't like spending $8 for six pieces at a restaurant!

  3. Happy Birthday to your daughter :)

  4. Happy birthday to the both of you!

    The rice could be made in a crock-pot. Then have a Sushi rolling party. Everyone has to roll their own!

  5. Just wanted to say that I've been following your blog and trying your recipes for a couple of years. THANK YOU for some really great meals, made using your recipes. I appreciate that you write them up with humor, too. You rock!

  6. Thank you so much for this. I love having a plan with the grocery list already done.

  7. LOVE your blog. LOVE IT. Anyway, wanted to let you know that I've posted a link to your blog on my most recent blog post. Which can be found here: I will take it down if you like, just let me know!

  8. Wait until your daughter turns FORTY, then you'll know true SHOCK.

  9. Steph, I love your blog and your recipes. I like the new format of your blog, but I sure do miss the feature of recipes from prior years. I'm not organized enough to have a "rotation" so when I looked at recipes past, it was so much fun to rediscover one we loved.

  10. I miss that, too, Pam! The little box that I updated each day stopped working a few weeks ago, so I took it off. I'll see if I can have Jennette work on it! thanks for the nudge.

  11. Dear Stephanie:
    While searching for crockpot menu plans this past week, I stumbled on your site via teh google, and breathed a sigh of relief at finding exactly what I was looking for. Easy recipes that I if I did the prep work the night before, my ageing father could just turn on in the morning. I logged on this past week, only to see you haven't done another of these posts. I would love to see more of these, and if you ever consider a subscription based monthly meal plan service, let me know! I will be the first customer.

  12. Really appreciate the book coming out, finally cooking with slow cooker is cool!

    Each time I watch a cooking show on TV, the chef emphasize on cooking with ovens instead of other method like slow cooker which can be equally good!.
