Menu Plan Monday - Week of December 1st

December already!

Our 4 day weekend passed by quickly!  Thursday we were all over the place for Thanksgiving celebrations.  Friday we stayed home and avoided the Black Friday madness.  I did do some online shopping though!  Mark got some things done around the house and worked from home.  Saturday, I ran some errands, including grocery shopping.  Grocery shopping the Saturday after Thanksgiving during the OSU/Michgan game was awesome!  I've seen the grocery store more crowded during the day mid-week.  Good decision on my part!  Sunday I cooked a turkey and did some laundry and pretty much had an enjoyable lazy day.

Monday again and we have a busy week ahead of us!

Here's what we're eating:

Sunday:  Turkey!  There will be sides too, of course.

Monday:  Leftovers

Tuesday:  Turkey Monte Cristos

Wednesday:  Cheddar-Stuffed BBQ Mini-Meatloaves with Mashed Potatoes (because Jack requested meatloaf!)

Thursday:  Turkey Tetrazzini

Friday:  Out

Saturday:  Apps

I'm going to be doing a lot of freezer cooking this week.  On the list:

Shepherd's Pie
Turkey Pot Pies
Half of that Turkey Tetrazzini

We'll see if there's anything leftover after that.

This is why I love to make a big turkey!  They're on sale this time of year and it's really not too much work to get it roasted.  Then there are plenty of leftovers and I can use the meat for freezer meals.  I'll also be making turkey stock.

  1. I shopped online too. No lines, crowds or carrying packages to the house.
    It's going to be wicked cold in Vegas. low 40s during the day...low 30s at night That always puts me in the mood for comfort foods.
    Have a wonderful week.

    1. Ha! 40 seems pretty mild to me at this point, but I'm in Ohio. It's all about perspective! Comfort foods are a necessity this time of year, for sure :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
