Menu Plan Monday: Favorite Cool Weather Cooking

This week has turned cool for us up here in Montana. The leaves are starting to turn yellow, my hardy cilantro plant wilted from the cold, and I had my first hot chocolate since winter yesterday evening. I always crave hot chocolate when the weather's cool, and I've been planning other cool-weather favorites for this week. Take a look below, and feel free to share your own cool-weather recipes!

Monday: Beef enchiladas with homemade enchilada sauce

Tuesday: Indian Tomato Chicken--a staple around here!

Wednesday: Cambodian Chicken Soup
You may remember this recipe from several months ago. We tried it and really enjoyed it--pineapple chunks and coconut milk put an unusual spin on a chicken and rice soup.

Thursday: Homemade pizza with Italian Cheese bread
I make my pizza crust with this recipe, which doesn't require letting the dough rise. It goes without saying that this is one of my husband's favorite meals!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Laura,

I just left a comment back on my blog about how I disclose all my referrals.

I hope you come back and read, as I have a feeling you are a new reader, and I didn't want you to think I don't try to help others and disclose how to earn money.

It is my main goal to help others learn how to earn thru referral programs, affiliates, etc and I even post all my earnings every Sunday with links to show others where and how to do it themselves.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and please...feel free to email me with any and all suggestions. I am constantly trying to improve my site.

Hi Laura,

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your note.

I am not sure about where your at but I think that the lack of sunny days has been what's preventing my seeds from sprouting. We have had weeks of rain here and that isn't normal.

I live in Spokane WA and don't know of any plant nurseries in Montana and to be honest, I stopped purchasing veggie plants at places like Home Depot or Lowes a long time ago because I felt the quality of them was lacking. If you are coming over to Spokane check out Judy's Enchanted Garden. She's not cheap but not unreasonable either and her plants are excellent.
