Meal Planning: 2 weeks of Comfort food!

I just got done planning my menu for the next 2 weeks.
I'm pretty excited, as the weather report is calling for lots of rain in the valley.
Snow in the Mountains!
Fall is coming, and I see it in the weather report!
Gone are the days of 80* temperatures and playtimes at the park.
I'm pretty sad about it.
The change of seasons have occurred pretty quickly and obviously.

But, to change my mood, I've gone to my trusty Pinterest board dedicated to dinners to help me plan my meals for the next 2 weeks.
{I also have Breakfast, Lunch, Drinks, and Snacks/Dessert boards too!}

Many of my dinners are comfort foods of soups & carbs.
I love fall.
I just don't feel ready for it yet!
