Meal Plan Monday - November 18

Gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday is always anticipated at our house.  We are out of school the entire week, which means we get to have some fun and get ready for the holiday too.  We also get to spend a bit more time in the kitchen, whipping up some wonderful special dinners.

Our hands down favorite meal from last week was Grillled Greek Chicken.  I served it with Parmesan couscous and a greek inspired salad - mixed greens, feta cheese, kalamata olives, diced cumcumbers and an oil and vinegar dressing.  Wish I'd have time to take a picture of someone's plate before it was all gone.  It was beautiful. 

We didn't care as much for the Cheesy Spinach Pasta.  It has potential, but needs some tweeking.  However it was much better the next day for lunch.

Sunday - Crockpot Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad
Monday-  Baked Garlic Shrimp, Rice, Asparagus
Tuesday - Teriyaki Chicken, Fried Rice and Salad
Wednesday- take out - -kids choice
Thursday - Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings
Friday - Leftovers after shopping
Saturday - winging it, based on leftovers and what we feel like eating
Sunday  -  homemade pizza maybe?

Since we are home all week for the Thanksgiving holiday, I have included some breakfast items --

Breakfast Casserole (WW) - if we like this, I'll make one for the freezer too.
