This week is a bit different since Thanksgiving is this week. I planned a regular meal plan, but also added in our Thanksgiving plans. Since Mr. Man will be off, I figure that some of the meals will be used for lunches. It should even out since we will do Thanksgiving at a friends and still come home and need to have leftovers or make dinner.
For our regular meal plan:
1. Lemon and Sage Trout
2. Blackeyed Peas and Sausage over Rice
3. Honey Garlic Chicken
4. General Tso's Chicken
5. Minestrone Soup
6. Roast Chicken
7. Soft Tacos
For Thanksgiving we will be going to a friend's house. They are making the turkey and some sides. There are about 5 families invited, so we will be bringing some dishes as well. Some of these dishes will be made for Thanksgiving and the others will be for us to have during Mr. Man's time off for our own little family to-do.
Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with Rice
Pumpkin Bread with Honey Butter
We don't really have any plans for the holidays. There has been snow in the mountains for the last two weeks, so we are thinking about taking the girls sledding. We are undecided. Arianna still is in school, but we will pull her out on Thanksgiving (Thursday) but send her on Friday. They are doing a fun activity and I really don't want her to miss it since she loves school so much. Other than that, we are going to enjoy some family time and probably prepare for Christmas.
That is my tradition, wrap presents for Christmas during Mr. Man's time off. Hopefully it works out and I get a lot accomplished. I know the girls will hve many more things coming in the mail from family, and I will have to wrap those. Then we need to start thinking about a tree and decorations. You know the typical day after Thanksgiving Christmas decorating. At least that has always been our families' tradition.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving week. I would love to hear what your traditional foods are and what you look forward to having on this day!
