Hey y’all! It’s me, Brenda from Meal Planning Magic. You’re receiving this email newsletter because you signed up--maybe a while ago--to receive an extra weekly email where I share a little bit about meal planning, seasonal content I think you might enjoy and a little bit more about me.

Happy Wednesday everyone! Whew! Where did this last week go? Remember, you can now expect an email every Wednesday morning at 6:00 am CST for a little Midweek Meal Planning Magic. So here you go!

Can you believe we're already to the end of October? I say this every year but it seems as though the days just fly by. But we are having some fun along the way and I hope you are too!

Read on to find some weekly inspiration!

On The Blog

Last week I shared one of our all time favorite muffin recipes -- Pear Walnut Power Muffins! I've been making these muffins for almost a decade and now that pears are in season (beginning of season actually!) I see a lot more of these in our future. They are perfect for breakfast or a snack. And since they freeze well, why not make a double batch to have some handy anytime?

Organize Your Refrigerator image-pin-ready

Meal Planning Tips & Tricks

Earlier this year I signed up for an online course on minimalism called Uncluttered. You can participate as many rounds as you'd like and I'm currently in the third round. In the related Facebook group someone asked about organizing the refrigerator so I shared this post How To Organize Your Refrigerator to Save Time & Money and thought I'd share it with you here too! Just in time to do a deep clean before the holidays, right? By the way, the Uncluttered group is incredibly supportive. The next session starts in January. If you're interested, let me know and I will share a 25% off discount code with you (I get nothing in return--just spreading the word!)

Silicone Mats

Favorite Things

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know I recently took a class on how to make the "fancy" cut-out sugar cookies. I've been practicing a bit these last few weeks and have really loved the silicone baking mats that make baking and clean up a breeze! You guys, I've been using these for years and they're a great replacement to parchment paper and non-stick spray to help bake all kinds of things evenly. I just wash and reuse over and over again! I bought my set at Costco but Amazon is an easy option too!

TED Radio- The Food We Eat image

What I'm Listening To

I shared last time that I love podcasts! So I was excited to come upon one from TED Radio Hour with the topic The Food We Eat. It went into our deep connection with food and how that has changed over the decades and even ideas on where it's headed---so interesting! I'd love to know what you're listening to so send me an email and let me know what I should add to my playlist!
