Family Meal Planning (11-15-10)

Click here to see previous week's Family Meal Planning!

Have you started your "Thanksgiving" Meal Plan, I have been collecting recipes for a while now and I have a whole stack of new recipes to try (I will be posting them next week, for you to see). I am just the opposite of creature of habit, I do NOT want the same thing we've had over and over each year. I want every item to be NEW, EXCITING and DIFFERENT. I know this is NOT the norm, but I love it and I hope my family will too!

And believe it or not I still do not know where I will be for Thanksgiving. With my husbands busy work schedule and limited days off, we are unsure yet where we will be. I do know for SURE I will be cooking a Thanksgiving meal (just not sure if it will be on the traditional Thursday of Thanksgiving or it will be on the Saturday after). Either way I have already bought a Turkey (for only $5 BUCKS at Vons grocery store, what a steal, I picked up two) and then I WON, YES, I WON another thing in this tiny little blog world, I WON a $15 certificate for a Butterball Turkey. And I could not be MORE thrilled, Thank You, Thank You Mommy's Kitchen. So, not only will I be cooking one Turkey this holiday season, I will cooking a few other Turkey's during Christmas. Good thing since I have over 20+ people staying at my house for 10 days at Christmas time.

I am so excited this week of THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS all the links will be Thanksgiving Dinner & Side Dishes, plus if you need some ideas for Thanksgiving Cookies & Treats check out these 39 great recipes and if you are in the mood for Pumpkin Recipes then just follow these 41 recipes specifically for anything with Pumpkin. 

Well, now for this week of Family Meal Planning...and me starting a DIET. Yes, you heard right a DIET for the holidays. I am ready to shed a few pounds during the holidays and make sure not to gain an extra pounds while enjoying all these delicious treats. So, wish me luck!

Check back at the end of the week and we will link the actual recipe!
