Wow. SEVEN HUNDRED weekly menus! Thank you to everyone who posts and for keeping me on the ball week after week. I am so grateful for our community!

Given my hand surgery situation, this week I’m going to start planning Thanksgiving to try to figure out how to do our food traditions but without the amount of cooking I normally do. Any suggestions are appreciated!



  • Chicken Tikka Masala (Costco)




  • Leftovers


  • Takeout Night


Your turn! Share your menus in the comments below! And Happy 700th Menu Week to all!

    • Haha! Can you imagine?! I don’t even think my Pioneer Woman cookbook giveaway when she linked to me had that many comments. hahaha!

      I do kind of miss the old days when we would get 30-50 menus a week…back when people commented on blogs more! But I love our small and mighty group so much!
