Menu Plan Monday ~ Oct 13th

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!  Many of you will have celebrated last night as my family had orginally intended.  Unfortunately we had to change plans along the way and I am in fact having my big ole turkey tonight.  Since we also have a birthday party today from 2-4 I spent most of yesterday getting everything prepared in advance so now we can relax and enjoy the afternoon skating together.  And in case you think we are leaving our turkey high and dry when we go out, don’t you worry because we have ourselves a turkey sitter 🙂

I was so excited to share my pretty Thanksgiving table with you today too but since I haven’t even set it yet I guess that will have to wait until next week.

So not only do I have Thanksgiving dinner to look forward to but the turkey leftovers as well!  Have a happy week everyone!

Monday: Thanksgiving Dinner (as detailed last week)

Tuesday: Creamy Turkey Soup

Wednesday: BBQ Turkey Pita

Thursday: Sausage and Tomato Rigatoni

Friday: Homemade Pizza

Saturday: Country Pepper Omelet Pie

Sunday: If you can find it, you can have it!

    Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans. 😉 I think the best part of Thanksgiving is the leftovers, so I don’t mind it. As a matter of fact, since we’re doing Thanksgiving at MiL’s this year, I’m still going to do Thanksgiving stuff here so we have leftovers. Because of some of MiL’s medical problems, though, this also means I get to cook some dishes twice – but that’s ok. 🙂 SiL and I got together this week and figured out who is going to do what at MiL’s house (I live the closest but neither of us live RIGHT there) and how we’re going to let her help. This will hopefully let us have a bit less stressful holiday. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do for dessert – I’m just not a big fan of pumpkin or pecan pie – both of which will be there. I’m thinking of making gingerbread since cranberry salad will already be served as the salad course (Jello, walnuts, cranberries, cream cheese, celery) so I don’t want to make cranberry bread. Any ideas except pie are welcome (there’s only going to be 5 people at dinner and I think 3 pies are a bit much when most of us are trying to watch our weight most of the time).

    Ranee, I think some of us do it just so we have another day off to recuperate before going back to work 🙂

    Busy week here, so tried for easy to make meals. DD, of course, requested mashed potatoes. I think that’s the most time consuming thing I’m making this week. 🙂 ~~Rhonda

    I just did my first menu plan, but I modified my plan a bit. I don’t cook. Luckily, I have a husband who does. Because we have hectic lives (and no kids yet) our dinners aren’t usually very planned. So, I decided to start with, I will plan at least 2 days of the week and at least one will be a new recipe (I’m trying to figure out this room in the house called a kitchen!). Wish me luck!
