Menu Plan Monday! THANKSGIVING!!

Welcome Monday and Welcome to Thanksgiving Week!  A week you say???  Heck yes, one day simply is not enough for this holiday!

We will be celebrating with family most of the week and into the weekend, including wine tastings and football games.  How will you celebrate this year?

Monday: Pick up Diestel Farms Fresh Free-Range Turkey (this year's will be close to 20 pounds)!!!  Dinner is Toasted Cheese Sandwiches and Amy's Chunky Tomato Bisque
Tuesday: Grocery Shopping!  We did a lot of pre-shopping throughout October and November so I don't expect to get much more than our perishables!  Dinner is Garden Burgers and Tater Tots
Wednesday: Italian Night!  Pre-Thanksgiving Party starts early!  Lots of pre-cooking so we are cooking a Lasagna from Costco with Garlic Bread and Salad for an easy meal
