Since we aren’t doing any traveling, we’re excited to be available to cook some big meals to share with others this week. You’ll notice that our menu for Monday night and Friday night are the exact same. That’s because I decided to make it easy on myself. Coming up with one menu plan to feed two large groups just made sense. I got the enchiladas made and put into the freezer last week. The rest will go together easily before we serve the meals!
I would love to hear what you have going on this Thanksgiving. :) We plan to have a very low-key holiday this year. We’ll spend time with friends, feed a few college students, and hopefully play lots of board games. I’m thinking we’ll put our Christmas tree up this weekend, do some baking, and maybe a little shopping. We’ll drink Hot Cocoa, come up with some fun snacks, and take some time off. I can’t wait!
Here’s what our menu looks like for this week:
Sunday, November 24
Ham roast, creamy mac and cheese, green beans
Small group – I’m making a bunch of baked potatoes, everyone else is bringing toppings
Thursday, November 28
Instant oatmeal packets, dried fruit
Thanksgiving meal shared with friends – I’m making the turkey, gravy, green bean casserole, whole wheat butterhorns, and honey pecan pie
Friday, November 29
Dark chocolate almond granola, applesauce
Rice and veggie stir fry with carrots and broccoli
Meal for rescue mission (about 26 people) – Cheesy salsa enchiladas, taco salad, spanish rice, chips and salsa
