Hi everyone! Many of you will be busy this week with your food preparations in anticipation of Thanksgiving. Us Canadians celebrated last month but all this talk on blogland about the delicious recipes many of you plan on making is making me drool all over my keyboard :) If you are posting/linking any Thanksgiving recipes in your Menu Plan Monday post please feel free to put the name of one of the recipes in brackets after your own name so we can all be sure to take a peek. I love checking out recipes especially holiday ones!
Last week a few of you were forgetting to leave spaces in the Mr. Linky name field. If what you enter is one big long string of words the columns will be all wonky and I get a little cuckoo. So please please leave spaces between your words :) Thanks!
So I thought it would be fun to do another giveaway this week as part of all this holiday hoopla! Because menu planning has been such a lifesaver for me I love to encourage others to give it a try as much as possible. I’m not alone in that endeavor and when I can I like to let you know about other great and helpful resources out there. Today Jamie from Baby Get Green is giving away to one Menu Plan Monday participant a copy of her e-book titled A Month of Meals. This 71 page e-book, valued at $19.95, is chock full of everything you need to organize and prepare a month worth of meals including menu plans, recipes, shopping lists and step by step instructions. The menu plans are designed to save you money because meals have been put together that have similar ingredients so that food is not wasted throughout the weeks.
If you’d like to be entered in this giveaway simply link up below to your menu plan for this week and I’ll be selecting a winner from the Mr. Linky list on Wednesday, Nov 26th at 12:00 pm PST. Good luck!
