Meal Plan Monday, week of November 5
Monday- Shrimp Scampi (from Rachael Ray)
Tuesday- Stuffed chicken breast
Wednesday- Roast, mashed potatoes, salad, dessert or hot dog, applesauce and fruit cup. (AKA dinner at church)
Thursday- Spaghetti and meatballs
Friday- Flank steak (postponed from last week)
Saturday- dinner out (our beloved babysitter wasn't available last week, so our night out was also postponed.)
Sunday- Breakfast for dinner
I also have nine million pounds of apples that I need to do something with this week. We'll be making applesauce, apple pie filling, etc. If you have ideas, please don't be shy--I need help here!
Our Thanksgiving menu is almost finalized. One thing that I can easily do ahead is to make a batch or two of Sister Schubert's rolls. We won't need two batches of rolls--that would be about a dozen dozen!--but it's just as easy to have the freezer well-stocked, right? And, besides, there's a really good chance a few pans will mysteriously disappear between now and Thanksgiving! I got a Sister Schubert cookbook back when we lived just up the road from her, and all the recipes are so, so, soooooo good!
Head over to Laura's new blog at orgjunkie.com for more menu ideas! The fact that I'm #41 to link my menu post--and we're still hours away from it even being Monday should give you some idea how insanely popular this meme is.
