This week my meal plan is suspended due to travel and my preparation for the upcoming Thanksgiving feast. I am currently out of town and canning 150 lbs of beef. When I return home on Monday, my focus will not be a daily meal plan, but rather cleaning and cooking and baking for my guests who will be arriving on Thursday. If I had to guess, this week my family will probably use up a restaurant gift card, eat defrosted sloppy joes and maybe even have Easy Mac or Hamburger Helper while I prepare to hostess Thanksgiving.
Keep checking in this week, though. I will be posting. First about my beef canning trip over the weekend and then the pictures and recipes for the dishes I am preparing for Thanksgiving. Next week, the meal plan returns...possibly with ways to use up all of that leftover turkey!
If you're hosting Thanksgiving, what's on the menu?
If you're going to a Thanksgiving dinner, what are you taking?
My dad requested Beef Wellington, Lobster, and Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake...but I think I'll stick to the traditional.
Here's my menu:
Stuffing-which I don't actually stuff into anything, but bake separately.
Green Bean or Broccoli Casserole
Baked Corn Casserole
Sweet Potato Casserole-my personal favorite
Rolls with Butter and Jam
Wow, that's a lot of casserole!
Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake
Peanut Butter Pie
Grandma's Cherry Pie
Good luck with your holiday preparations!
