Keeping Up With...Food (Menu Plan 11/21 - 11/27)
We thought we'd do a smaller meal since it's just us, but that idea has gone out the window because we want all of the traditional dishes. So I'll cook a big meal on Thursday and then I don't plan to cook again for the rest of the weekend. I finished up my shopping today and got some frozen appetizers as well so we can mix those in with the Thanksgiving leftovers.
Last week didn't go according to plan. I wasn't feeling well towards the end of the week. Not sure what was going on but I'm feeling better now. I didn't cook on Thursday night (leftovers) or Friday night (we went out since we had a sitter) or Sunday night (leftovers again). So a lot of our meals are carryovers from last week.
Here's what we're eating this week:
Monday - Chicken & Bean Bake with Roasted Squash
Tuesday - Sausage & Black Eyed Peas with Kale Chips
Wednesday - Chicken Nachos with Salad
Thursday - Thanksgiving Menu (see below)
Friday - Leftovers
Saturday - Leftovers
Sunday - Leftovers
French Toast for Breakfast
Gravy (from a jar, I'm lazy)
Roasted Green Beans
Spicy Zucchini Boats
Butternut Squash Quinoa Bake
Ice Cream Cake
Water Flavor - Lemon Mint - I figure this will be good for "cleaning out" the bad stuff as I eat it
Food Prep - I have the beans soaked & ready to go for dinner tonight. All of the shopping was finished this morning. The turkey is thawing in the fridge. The boys will help me make the cookies tomorrow. I think I'm good to go, especially since this week isn't very busy.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Please feel free to share any of your favorite recipes for the big day, I may add them to my menu for next year.
