Well, I stuck to the menu plan for the most part this past week. The jury duty I was assigned to threw a wrench into it. I didn’t get the energy bites made or the granola. I never knew when I would be needed so I couldn’t really plan much. Oh, well. My shopping trip went very well and I am pleased to say I stuck to the budget. I get to be mom again next week so I plan on baking with my children, enjoy a program at my daughter’s school and, of course, THANKSGIVING!
We are not going anywhere on Thanksgiving this year due to a family wedding that weekend. We are planning a quiet Thanksgiving at home with some extended family. The wedding is going to be a great time. Not only are we celebrating the marriage of a nephew, three of our four children are in it. 😉 I’ll try to post some pictures.
Here is the menu plan:
Blueberry Coffee Cake, toast, cereal, bagels
Ham and Beans, cornbread, salad
Thanksgiving meal at church (I’m bringing Mandarin Orange Salad and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dessert)
Homemade Mac and Cheese, Homemade Chicken Strips (never made those last week), veggies
Cream of Chicken Soup, ham and cheese sandwiches, green beans, chips, pie
Egg and bacon casserole, pancakes, fruit
