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! I'm restarting my email newsletter and changing things up a bit--primarily the day and time that it comes to you. 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!

The cooler weather has FINALLY moved into my part of southeast Texas so it’s really starting to feel like fall. Last weekend it was in the 90s and that was SOOO hot. I hope these cooler temps stick around a little while. This week I'm adding some comfort food to our meal plan. I need to get the rest of this month's meals planned too. Have you ever tried meal planning for a month at a time? I'd love to know how it went so drop me a line!

Ok, now onto some more things to inspire you this week!

On The Blog This Week

Are you team PSL or not? I just can't get enough of this All-Natural Pumpkin Spice Latte Creamer! I blew through my first batch so need to make some more! I love that I can make it up ahead and use it whenever I want a cup of coffee. It's even freezable--how's that for make ahead?

The holidays are just around the corner and I want to help you be more organized this year! My 3rd Annual Holiday Meal Planning Challenge is starting on October 30th (yes, I know it seems impossible that the holidays are that close, but it's true!) Each week for six weeks, I'll be sharing tried and true tips, ideas and recipes to help your holidays be a bit more stress free.

Plus, when you join my private Facebook group, Meal Planning Magic Community Table, and participate in the group, you'll have a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card! Sign up here for the email list today and watch your inbox for more details to come--and don't forget to tell your friends too!

Six Tips for Meal Planning Success

Meal Planning Tips & Tricks

I love cooking for my freezer! That's where I make a meal that is prepped ahead (even if it's only part way), then I freeze it to pull out later and prepare on busy days. I've shared some of my favorite Six Tips for Freezer Meal Success. I also share one of my most favorite freezer friendly products ever--the LabelOnce Labels (click through to the post for the link)! It's easy to get started with freezer cooking --I'd love to hear your favorite tips too so feel free to reply to this email with your ideas!


Recipe Re-Do

I’ve been making these Chocolate Cat Face Cookies since I was a kid myself and now my own kids can make them. With only a few ingredients, they are soooo simple and super festive for Halloween! I originally shared this recipe a few years ago but updated it recently with new photos and content. I made these last week for a holiday themed teacher appreciation luncheon and they were a huge hit! Click here to get the recipe.

Favorite Things

I love audio books! I especially like to borrow them for free from my local library. This month, one of my book clubs chose The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women. It was fascinating to learn about this part of history that I had no idea about and I learned so much!

What are you reading or watching or listening to these days?
