Menu Plan: 11/28 – 12/04


Well, I never did make it back here to post about how I prep ahead for  Thanksgiving dinner.  Things just got too hectic around here.   But, maybe I can for our Christmas dinner, even if it is on a smaller scale.  Last week’s menu worked out really well.  We had enough leftovers to give us all a decent meal on Wednesday, which saved us from the usual take out that ends up happening every year the day before a big holiday dinner.  I’m very thankful for that.  Not only does it save us money, but it is also much better for us. 

This week’s menu is a bit up in the air since the stomach bug has officially hit our household.  So far, just one, but it has to start somewhere.  I’m praying that it ends there, but I do have my doubts.  I have a feeling that it will at least run through  all the kids.  But, I’m stocked up on Sprite, crackers, popscicles, tangerines & oranges, chicken broth, and few cans of chicken noodle soup.  I plan to try to make some, but in case I end up getting it myself, I would like to have a few cans on hand that can be fixed easily when I do start to feel better.  I also have a little bit of bread but will be baking some more Tuesday. 

So, here’s what’s kind of on the agenda for this week:



  • Sandwiches
  • Leftovers
  • Soup


  • Thanksgiving Pot Pie (using leftovers)
  • Vegetable Stuffing Bake (again, using leftovers)
  • Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Ham & Bean Soup
  • Spaghetti with sauce and garlic bread
  • Leftovers (from this week’s meals)
  • Saturday, we’ll be eating dinner out.

Again, this is subject to change due to potential illness this week.  I’m just praying that this is short lived, but it seems to be taking anywhere from 48 to 72 hours from the time you’re exposed until the time symptoms start to occur, so we shall see.
