A Weekly Meal Plan for Thanksgiving Week~ November 18-24,2012

Posted on 19 November 2012 by noelskitchen

Happy Monday! Are you busy getting ready for Thanksgiving? We have our turkey, it’s chillin’ in the fridge and all the fixins’ are in the pantry ready to go. 

Every year Thanksgiving week is typically laid back for the first few days. I have the entire week off from the office and it’s a short school week. Mid-week, is Grandparents day and I’ll spend a little time at the school volunteering in the morning. Then later in the day, I’ll finish my prepping for our Thanksgiving day feast.

In previous years, I’ve always had enough for some tasty Thanksgiving leftovers. I’m also planning simple meals before and after Thanksgiving. I really don’t want lots of leftovers the beginning of this week as I’ll have plenty after Thanksgiving day.

Here’s our plan for the week.

My weekly meal plan and shopping list is completed and posted on our fridge:

Breakfast options: 

(served with fruit)

French toast casserole
Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
Scrambled, Fried, or Hard-Boiled Eggs
Breakfast Burritos
English Muffins
Homemade Bread
Breakfast Cookies
Mini Apple Pies or Turnovers

Lunch options:

Sandwiches or Wraps (Tuna salad, egg saladchicken salad, turkey salad, leftover meats, grilled cheese, blt, pb&j)
Leftovers from dinner
Baked Potato
Homemade Pizza Pockets

Need ideas for your weekly meal plan? It’s time for another weekly menu.  I enjoy menu planning because of  the simplicity it provides for my life. It enables me to decrease my grocery shopping excursions to twice a month and it allows me to  have more free time to focus on my family and home. For ideas in the weekly meal plan, we’ll be focusing on a variety of family meals. You’ll find the recipes on the weekly meal plan also available on my Recipe Index page with a grocery list included.

Dinner (recipes will post throughout the week, given time to cook and photograph :) )

Note: an asterisk* means it’s from the freezer

Sunday:  Sunday Supper~French Toast, Gallo Pinto Beans and Rice

Monday: Tuscan Tomato and Basil Soup

Tuesday:  Pasta Night* (pulling red sauce from the freezer)~served with salad and garlic bread

Wednesday: Asian Chicken Salad Wraps

Thursday:Thanksgiving Day Feast Menu

Friday: Family Favorites Night ~Pizza Night

Saturday: Soup Night~Fiesta Turkey Tortilla Soup, Good loaf of fresh homemade french bread
