Menu Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Week 2014

Welcome Thanksgiving!

Heck, any meal this great oughta just have a whole week devoted to it!

Do you have your lists prepared!?  A grocery list is a no-brainer, but I also have a prep list.  I do a lot of my prep-cooking on Wednesday, do most of my chopping and veggie prep so that on Thursday morning I can spent the least amount of time in the kitchen as possible.  It's all about organization and remember, Laura has got you covered.

Here is our menu for the week.  Other than the BIG DAY, Thursday....I am not cooking much the rest of the week.




Monday:  Pick up turkey at New Seasons!  Toasted Cheese and Amy's Tomato Soup for dinner
Tuesday:  Grocery Shop at Safeway!  Pick up some tacos for dinner!?  NO COOKING ZONE!
Wednesday:  Off work at 12:30!  Family arrives at 1PM.  Begin prep cooking and finish in time to serve a prepared lasagna, Garlic Bread and Salad at 6:30!
