  • Menu Plan Monday: Yummy Thanksgiving Food!

    I’m guessing most of us have Thanksgiving on our minds as we plan our menus this week. I have to go shopping today (and/or possibly tomorrow), as I refuse to set foot in a grocery store on Wednesday. Here’s what I’m thinking:

    Monday – Rotini & Cheese, Steamed Broccoli

    Tuesday – Meatloaf Sandwiches (since they didn’t get made last week), Sautéed Shredded Brussels Sprouts

    Wednesday – Sautéed Scallops, Lemon-Butter Linguine, Sautéed Shredded Zucchini

    Thursday – I don’t have to cook the turkey, but I’m making Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole and Sautéed Green Beans

    Friday & Saturday – Leftovers in one form or another

    Sunday – Dinner out
