I'm back!!! I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend! I had a great time filled with family, friends, lots of food and Black Friday Christmas shopping! I did however have a near meltdown when we were all gathering to pray and eat and as my husband is cutting the turkey he realizes it's NOT DONE!!! Talk about a Thanksgiving nightmare! So we had to stick it back in the roaster to cook and put all of the finished sides into the oven to keep warm! I was beyond frustrated, but in the end everything tasted great and now I can laugh about it!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we have put up our Christmas tree and are slowly putting up the rest of our decorations! Right now our house looks as if we just moved in, with boxes everywhere.
Nothing too eventful happening this week, so I should be able to stick to my meal plan! With the holidays approaching it's easy to ignore "the plan", but it really does simplify the season if I don't have to think about what were eating! And it can simplify the grocery shopping process. I can make sure I minimize my trips and money spent!
Here are the details:
bagels, cereal, toast, eggs
leftovers, pb&j, lunchmeat sandwiches, salad
cookies, clementines, crackers, pie
Monday - Slow-cooked Sticky Chicken w/ mashed potatoes & whole wheat rolls
