Best of October, a roundup of October recipes and happenings at Simply Sissom.
Welcome to the best of October where we officially say HELLO to the holiday season (aka.. Thanksgiving inspired recipes). Festive side dishes, fun appetizers and All. The. Mashed. Potatoes. coming your way!
Buuut, before we completely shift gears to focusing on all things turkey, let’s say a quick goodbye to October, starting with what we made in the kitchen this month. SPOILER.. if you don’t like pumpkin spice, this isn’t your month. My personal favorite this month were the Chunky Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins. If you’ve been following along with Simply Sissom for any amount of time you know that I DESPISE baking, but these.. well, they’re simple enough for me to tackle and SO DELICIOUS that we’ve made them 4 times already!
I’m not actually sure where October went… with the Kids on Fall Break for a week (and visiting Mimi), Joe and I got to head to Omaha for my cousin’s wedding sans kiddos. We pumpkin patched, pumpkin carved, cooked All. The. Pumpkin. and by tonight will have trick or treated no less than 3 times! Safe to say that I’m ready to move on to Thanksgiving!
This busy season is the perfect time to check out my online meal prepping course. In a nutshell, don’t stress about planning, grocery list making or complicated recipes. Savvy Mama Meal Prep: Quick and Easy walks you step-by-step through prepping one week’s worth (5 dinners) in just 45 minutes. You can learn more about it (and see the menu) by clicking —->HERE<—-
If you’re looking for other prep ahead friendly recipes, check out the Simply Sissom private Facebook group, Simply Sissom Community. It’s FREE! I pop in each week with a super simple and prep-friendly dinner that I share via FB LIVE. Free downloadable prep instructions and recipes are also available. Feel free to invite a friend and join us!
As I mentioned last month, Fall is one of my favorite cooking seasons. Now that I took care of cooking EVERYTHING pumpkin, I’m ready to tackle recipes that are more savory. In November look for simple, make-ahead recipes to add to your Thanksgiving table.
