Menu Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Week

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

My only goal for this week is to not to go to the grocery store–except to buy pears, sugar, and caramels so I can make this Fresh Winter Fruit Cake to take to one of our Thanksgiving celebrations. (My daddy will LOVE it.)

I do solemnly swear I am not going to buy anything else. We are working on cleaning out the fridge since we will be gone several days.

Mr. V will also be home this week, so we’ll have three meals a day to eat for a few days. Here’s what I’m planning on.

Breakfasts: Omelets, toast, granola, hash browns
Lunches: Cheese quesadillas, canned soup, leftovers
Dinners: Pasta with olive oil and Parmesan cheese, pancakes

Probably not the most healthful things you can think of, but it fits my goal of fridge-cleaning!

And oh my, how I am looking forward to devouring turkey and stuffing, scalloped corn, pickled beets, sweet potato casserole, pumpkin pie, layered salad … and, well, looking at the oyster dressing.

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving recipe?

  1. I plan to indoctrinate my grand niece and nephew into the glories of oyster dressing. I hope they aren't allergic to shellfish!

  2. Just wanted to say that I totally hear you on not needing to buy more food right now. Our pantry and freezer especially is bursting. I'm thankful for that, but now we need to start eating this stuff.

    Is it bad that much of my motivation for eating up some food in the freezer is so that I have some room to go buy some ice cream? 🙂
