Menu Plan Monday
This week is Thanksgiving Week. I always struggle with my meal plan before a holiday - I don't want to take too much effort, make too many leftovers, or inadvertently make something we are going to have for the Holiday.
I am also very spoiled as my mother makes Thanksgiving (and Christmas and Easter) Dinner. And she does it up RIGHT - Turkey with all the trimmings and our usual side of lasagna. Appetizers and desserts too. The best part, is that she sends a big pan of leftovers home with me.
So here is my menu for the week, anticipating the fact that I'd rather not step into a grocery store this week.
Monday - Pasta with garlic and olive oil
Tuesday - Bruschetta Chicken Bake
Wednesday - Shrimp Lo Mein & Dumplings (Mini Pizzas for the kiddos)
Thursday - THANKSGIVING DAY
Friday - Thanksgiving Leftovers
Saturday & Sunday - TBD
Each week, I link up my Menu Plan Monday over at I'm an Organizing Junkie.
What's on your plan this week?
catch you soon -
