Meal Plan Monday – November 21, 2011

It’s a special week this week, THANKSGIVING!!!!  This year is a little different than most in that we’re planning on having a very small Thanksgiving dinner and we have a wedding to go to that will keep us pretty busy.  This year Thanksgiving will be at our house and it will be Mr. Crunchycake, Miss K, and both sets of our parents.  So just seven of us chowing down this year and baby hardly counts because she still eats so little.  It’s going to be a non-conventional holiday meal for us; my husband and I are the only ones who would be eating turkey and neither of us LOVE it so we’re going to skip the turkey and make a vegetarian main dish (blasphemy! – I know.)  It feels a little weird but it just makes sense.  Three of our four parents are vegetarians and the fourth doesn’t eat much meat.  So might as well spend efforts on food that we’ll all be able to enjoy.  Sadly I still don’t know what that main dish will be.  I better figure it out today!  It’s a busy week so I don’t know how much cooking I’ll be doing outside of Thursday…

Sunday: Refrigerator clean up!  Need to make room for food on Thursday!  We had salad, enchiladas, pasta, grapes, and rice from earlier in the week and cleaned up some tupperware.

Monday:  We’re driving down to San Diego to see some friends and meet their new baby.  He’s only a couple months old.  So I’m not sure what we’re going to do for dinner.  Probably catch something on the way back home.

Tuesday:  Eggrolls and Salad

Wednesday: Wedding Events start at 6:00 pm so I think we’re eating there.

Thursday:  Need to figure out the main dish!!!!  EeEEkk!  Mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, butternut squash, roasted yams, garlic bread, pumpkin donuts, and possibly pecan pie.  It seems like I’m missing some sides so I’ll clean this up a bit.

Friday: Wedding event during the day, not sure about dinner so if we eat at home, I’ll just make a pizza and some salad

Saturday:  Wedding reception
