I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Today is the day for the Weekly Meal Plan and this week is Thanksgiving. Therefore, Monday – Wednesday I’ll make normal meals then Thursday a huge, wonderful Thanksgiving meal Friday – Sunday … Leftovers? Pretty much sums up the week so here it goes.
Monday – Burritos (Rice, black beans, corn, salsa, sour cream, cheese, steak strips, green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers and onions cooked on the stove) I’ll take a picture of my beautiful burritos this week to show you. Price = $12.50
Tuesday – Chicken Alfredo with broccoli and carrots. Delicious and I do make my sauce homemade so the total comes to $13 for everything. Not bad and really really tasty. I do add in rolls.
Wednesday – Baked Spaghetti is a hit with the kids. A little garlic bread and salad on the side, it’s nearly perfect. We spend around $11 on this meal.
Thursday – Thanksgiving! Roasted Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Classic Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce, Warm Rolls, Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Pecan Pie. I feel like I’m forgetting something … Not sure. But I can’t wait! Price = $35 ( I know I’m forgetting something)
Friday – Sunday is leftovers from Thanksgiving. If our stomachs can even handle more food. I’d really like to help others this Thanksgiving also.
This weeks menu is going to cost us $71.50. I’m not complaining. I think this is very nice.
When I was younger my Mother and I would go to homeless shelters and make food and pass it out all day for those in need and it was a memory I’ll forever cherish. It was so nice to be with them during the holidays and I’d love to do that again. We have all kinds of memories of Thanksgiving, as I know you do also and I’d love to hear some of yours.
I feel so blessed to be able to have my family together on Thanksgiving, God willing. Enjoying our food, and spending some great moments together.
We will definitely play some board games! That is always fun and I’m sure they’ll be a game on TV to watch. I need to check in and see if there is anything local that would be fun to do, like a parade or something.
What are some things you love to do on Thanksgiving? Any favorite memories?
