How is it already November 12? I usually start my meal plan the last few days of the month and I'm just now planning our month. I've just not been into it. I did buy groceries, fixing easy food and those meals that we didn't get to last month. We have been hosting my family for Thanksgiving for the past few years, so I have been preparing for that weekend and it is reflected in the monthly meal plan.
Unfortunately, my scanner isn't working and the printer component is on the fritz too. So, until I pick up a new all-in-on printer during the Black Friday Shopping, my menus this month will just be a list.
If you are looking to start meal planning and need some help getting started, please contact me.
Sunday, November 1 - Adults ate a fellowship meal at church and kids ate apples, cheese and Cherrios
Monday, November 2 - Jamison picked up a bucket of KFC and his parents came over to eat and watch the UK basketball game while I went grocery shopping. Just goes to show, fried chicken can find a way into a dietitian's diet!
Tuesday, November 3 - Pizza (Little Caesar's) ... and more grocery shopping
Wednesday, November 4 - Left overs (that would be pizza and KFC) and fruit
Thursday, November 5 - Family dinner at my in-laws. My M-I-L made delicious chicken tacos and sent the leftovers home with us
Friday, November 6 - We ate lasagna and caesar salad at my in-laws since there was some additional family in town.
Saturday, November 7 - Adults ate hot dogs, chips and s'mores at a bonfire and kids had leftover lasagna at my in-laws.

Thursday, November 26 - Thanksgiving! Turkey, Trader Joe's cornbread stuffing (the boxed stuff), cranberry sauce, corn casserole (Paula Dean's recipe), broccoli casserole, pineapple casserole, seven layer salad, baked sweet potatoes, Sister Shubert's Parker House Style dinner rolls. We eat health most of the time. At thanksgiving we make our favorite family recipes just as the recipe says. We enjoy the less healthy food in moderation and try not to overeat!
Oh and the Pineapple casserole is awesome! If you are looking for something new - this unorthodox side is now a family favorite! Contact me if you want the recipe! For that matter - if you want to know how we cook any of our thanksgiving foods, I would love to share!
Friday, November 27 - Taco Soup
Saturday, November 28 - Family Dinner at the in-laws
Sunday, November 29 - Leftovers
Monday, November 30 - Bean Burritos. I'll be making extras to freeze!
Hope this gives you some ideas.
