Well, as you know, October is here, and at least in my neck of the woods, the leaves are starting to look like they were touched with a red paintbrush.  The humidity filled heat is gone for the most part, and we’re wearing fleece jackets and hoodies outside.  It’s my hubby’s favorite time of year, and I can’t say I blame him!  This means I start adding some steaming soups, stews and chili’s to our meal plan, and this past week I made a yummy Broccoli Cheddar soup with grilled cheese sandwiches!  So good!  Here’s this week’s dinner ideas, and if you have any favorite soup or stew recipes, I’d love to hear about them in the comments!  🙂
