Week Of Thanksgiving Menu Plan: 11/21 –11/27



Well, Thanksgiving is officially here and, like many other households, Monday through Wednesday will be used to prepare ahead for the big day.   I like to start prepping as much ahead as possible so that when Wednesday rolls around, I don’t feel so overwhelmed, and so that I’m not up all night trying to get everything done.  So, to make meals easier this week, I will be cooking simple dinner meals on Monday and Tuesday, and plan to have leftovers on Wednesday.  This frees me up from having to worry about preparing another complete meal in the middle of trying to prepare for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. 

Here’s what my meal plan will look like this week:



  • Sandwiches
  • some leftovers
  • ???? Whatever we can find Monday – Wednesday


  • Sunday: Crock Pot Chicken faijta quesadillas, Spanish rice, and corn & black bean salsa
  • Monday:  Crock Pot  Chili
  • Tuesday:  Parmesan Chicken, mashed potatoes, peas, corn, & rolls
  • Wednesday:   Leftovers (chicken fajita quesadillas, Spanish rice, parmesan chicken, & chili)
  • Thursday:  Thanksgiving dinner
  • Friday:  Leftovers (boy will there be leftovers! )
  • Saturday:  Dinner with my parents

So, a busy week, but I’ll have a couple of days off, which will be nice!
