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! Can you believe a week has passed since my last weekly email? Remember, you can now expect an email every Wednesday morning at 6:00 am CST for a little Midweek Meal Planning Magic. I'll be adding a few other extras too so I hope you enjoy it!

October is super busy for our family! My kids are both now in the high school marching band and October is one of the busiest months of the season. Add in swim team and all those extra activities, it's a busy one but this year I'm embracing the crazy and enjoying the ride. How is your October going so far?

Read on to find some weekly inspiration!

On The Blog

We can't get enough of this 5 Ingredient Creamy Pumpkin Dip. It's a perfect fall snack for after school, parties or just because! It's super simple and made with real pumpkin. When you dip with apples, you can count those extra vitamins with each bite. Best of all you can make it ahead!

Meal Planning Tips & Tricks

Last week I updated my Start Meal Planning page on my website. I've got tons of resources there to help you with all kinds of meal planning tips and tricks. From How to Set Up a Great Buffet to My Favorite Tips for Potluck Party Success to Vacation Meal Planning(great for upcoming holiday travels). You can even find some ideas for Fun in the Kitchen too!

Recipe Re-Do

Last week during our cold snap, I made my Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. I recently republished it to add pressure cooking instructions. Not only is the soup SUPER simple and so flavorful, you can make it three different ways--on the stovetop, in a slowcooker or with a pressure cooker. My family has declared it one of the best soups ever! I hope you'll check it out!

Weekly Email - OXO tongs with nylon head

Favorite Things

Y'all, I want to share with you a tool I use ALL the time in my kitchen. I love these OXO Good Grips Locking Tongs with Silicone Tips. They are great because I can use them with any pan and not have to worry about it getting scratched. I also like that I can lock them closed so they don't take up as much space in my drawer as other tongs. Click on the Amazon logo at the bottom of this email if you want to check them out yourself. I bought mine at Williams-Sonoma outlet but Amazon is an easy option too!
