Menu Plan Monday


I'm excited for a quieter week (no meetings this week, ahead of Thanksgiving), and all of the fun of Thanksgiving food prep! Oh, and leftovers! Leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving. :-) 

  • Friday - takeout
  • Saturday - burgers & roasted potatoes
  • Sunday - lasagna
  • Monday - burgers & caprese salad
  • Tuesday - lasagna
  • Wednesday - pizza or something easy ahead of Thanksgiving
  • Thursday - Thanksgiving! We will be having steak, stuffing, green beans, squash/kale salad, & Basque cheesecake for dessert. There will also be pomegranate martinis + goat cheese crostini for appetizers!
  • Friday - chicken + Thanksgiving leftovers
And, a caprese salad from last week, made from tomatoes & basil from the garden.

What are you making this week?


  1. When I saw the picture on your blog, it was just so small, I thought it was a christmas picture. Lol, not until I clicked to read the post I saw it was a salad!

    1. Ha! It does look kind of Christmas-y, now that you mention it. :-)

  2. That all sounds so good. You are brave to make lasagna the same week as Thanksgiving. I’ve had it on my list to make but haven’t made it so far. Hopefully soon.

    1. Oh no - this was a frozen one from Costco. They come in a two pack, & my husband bought one for a neighbor (she had a power outage, & we cooked it at our house). It's not as good as homemade, but it's fine & needed to get out of my freezer!

  3. Oh yum! That salad looks amazing. Caprese salad is one of my favorites.

    I'm not going too crazy this week. I'll throw something together tomorrow, but the family will have to fend for themselves on Wednesday night, and the rest of the week will be leftovers!

  4. What a wonderful menu. Love the salad.

    God bless.
