My menu plan is leftover-less. We haven’t any Thanksgiving leftovers to use. We did have leftover pie but my husband and I took care of that over the weekend. No turkey. No cranberry sauce. SIGH. I admit I am a bit jealous of those of you having to make do with all that leftover turkey. Although we weren’t hosting Thanksgiving, I did buy and turkey. Then, I put it in the freezer. I suppose we’ll have to get our turkey leftover fix another time when the bird is not frozen. I bought a ham as well. Guess where I put that? I didn’t plan very well but in my defense, I do believe there is a law against cooking a large meal the weekend and week after Thanksgiving. I had no choice but to grocery shop this afternoon. Here’s the leftover-less meal plan I threw together:
MONDAY: BLT’s on Texas Toast and French Fries
TUESDAY: Roast in the crock-pot
WEDNESDAY: French Toast
THURSDAY: Frozen Pizza (G has a band concert so I’ve opted to keep it super simple!)
FRIDAY: Fish (catfish or trout from the freezer plus fish sticks for the picky kids)
Our menu is fairly basic this week. December is already busy for us….we could start our weekend with the concert on Thursday and not stop the activities until Monday. What’s on your menu plan this week? Are you ready for the holiday season? I’m predicting a lot of basic meals this month as I’m not anywhere near ready for it all this year.
