Monday Meal Planning (Thanksgiving Week)

Monday! Thanksgiving is on Thursday. THURSDAY! But you're not worried because you've got your meal allllll planned out, right? Good. I promise I'll post the Thanksgiving timeline today. It was just too gorgeous here yesterday and we had to play in the leaves and run through the woods. And eat stew and watch A Christmas Story. Sorry. But it is Monday, and I do have a meal plan for your week! Easy, no-nonsense meals and some great leftover recipes for all that Turkey, potatoes ect. Get hungry.

Monday: Thai Curry Noodle Soup - it honestly does not get easier than this! No shrimp for us but add in some shredded, deli rotisserie chicken, and you're done!

Tuesday: Grown-up Mac and Cheese

Wednesday: Crockpot White Bean Chicken Chili

Thanksgiving, Our menu:
Maple-Roasted Turkey with Sage, Smoked Bacon and Cornbread Stuffing 
( side note, if you're making this recipe, I recommend putting a little bit of low-sodium chicken broth in the bottom the roasting pan, just to prevent burning from the maple syrup)
Delicious Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Fresh Cranberry Relish
Balsamic Braised Brussels with Pancetta
Salted Caramel Cheesecake Pie

Thanksgiving Leftovers: - Sure, Turkey Noodle Soup is great and all, but lets jazz our leftovers up a bit.
Mashed Potato and Stuffing Tacos
Turkey Pie
Turkey Enchiladas
Two Turkey Sandwiches

Happy Monday!
