    Week 409 Menu + Thanksgiving Menu 2014

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    It’s Thanksgiving week – I can’t believe it! Today it’s mostly all about the Thanksgiving menu, but I’ll also share our menu for the whole week, which is pretty sparse because all the attention will be on the turkey!

    This year we will have Nate’s sister Jess and her family here with us for the entire week, and the Czarnecki family will be joining us on Thanksgiving. We will be surrounded by people that we love dearly and I can’t wait!

    Time for the Thanksgiving menu! Here’s what we’ll be having. As usual, we’re sticking with everyone’s favorite classics.

    I’m not making green bean casserole this year, but if you are, you really should try my homemade version. It’s kind of to-die-for.

    As for the rest of the week…here’s the menu plan!

    MONDAY: Malibu Melt Wraps

    TUESDAY: Taco Night

    WEDNESDAY: Taco Leftovers

    THURSDAY: THANKSGIVING!

    FRIDAY – SUNDAY: Leftovers Galore!

    Please share your weekly menu as usual…but we REALLY want to see your Thanksgiving plans! Share, share, share!

My dad is coming to town to help with the kids, so he and Nate will be holding down the fort. When I was in 3rd grade, my dad and I were home alone for a week and he made spaghetti every night. I made sure to add it to the menu in honor of that week! ;)

    Week 400 Menu

    EmailPinterestFacebookTwitterGoogle+StumbleUpon

    I love round numbers. I kind of feel like the fates gave me weekly menu #400 for my birthday. That was nice of them! It’s my birthday this week, which also means it’s Owen’s since we share the same birthday! It also means that I need to break out the ol’ cake-making skills. Owen has requested a chocolate airplane cake. Wish me luck!
