Of course, I have all kinds of yummy Thanksgiving food in the works…

Thanksgiving morning, we’ll be having our traditional Apple Baked French Toast

For our big yummy meal (of which we will surely have leftovers for a very looooonggg time), I’m making:
turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, brussel sprouts (My hubby’s the only one who loves these, but I love him…hence, they’re on the menu!) potato filling, sweet potato casserole, rolls, cranberry relish, and pumpkin pie.  So far, I think that’s all  🙂

Have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family as you reflect on the many blessings from the Lord!


Menu Plan Monday

We were so blessed this week by a HUGE food shower for seminary students.  God was so good in blessing us with so much food!  Because of that food shower, we’re able to eat mostly from our cupboards and stockpile again.  I plan to make a quick trip to ALDI for produce, meat, and a few other odds and ends to complete our meals for the week. 

Main Meals

Hawaiin Crockpot Chicken, rice, salad

French dip subs, salad

Roasted Shrimp, Tomatoes & Feta, rice, veggies

Bacon Wrapped Apple BBQ chicken, roasted potatoes, veggies


Breakfast for dinner

Dinner at friends’ home

Are you looking for new lunch ideas?  I’m not sure where I got the idea, but my new favorite lunch (or in my case supper since Jared works 2nd shift) is spinach salad with hardboiled eggs, dried cranberries, and feta cheese.  Yummy!

I’m doing my best not to go grocery shopping this week, except for a few essentials.  I stopped in at ALDI last week for some produce, etc. and we have what we need.  We’re eating from the freezer and the cupboard supplies this week.  I’m afraid I wasn’t too creative with a menu plan…but this is what I came up with.

Main Meals:
Stuffed Cabbages (leftovers), salad
Lasagna (leftovers), veggies
BBQ chicken (from freezer), rice, veggies
Broccoli soup, Baking Powder Biscuits
Spaghetti, garlic bread, salad
Breakfast for supper
Italian chicken (from freezer), potatoes, salad

Freezer Cooking:
Banana Caramel Pecan Bread
Morning Glory Muffins
Mini Apple Pies

We’re eating a little differently this week due to the fact that Jared and I are both taking a week long block course at seminary all morning, every morning Mon-Fri.  We’ll be gone right up till lunch time (when Jared heads to work), so we’ll need to quickly eat in the car.  I tried to come up with a few things that I could pack in the morning before we leave. 

Main Meals:
Crispy Chicken Wraps (from freezer), raw veggies, fruit
Tuna Salad, Morning Glory Muffins
Out to Eat

Cheesy Chicken Empanadas, raw veggies, fruit
