Sometimes meal planning feels like a chore.  Especially right before Thanksgiving when I wonder why we can't just eat out until Thursday.  But, here is a meal plan.  Easy stuff to leave time for all of the pre-holiday cooking I'll be doing!

This week is a bit more complicated than last one for cooking.  I'm also a bit more busy than I was last week, so here's hoping I'm not setting myself up for failure with the cooking plans.  There are some easy meals, so hopefully those will serve me well on the busy days.  I'm making chili this week because a) it's cold and b) I need to have leftovers of it for the day after Thanksgiving.  And Thanksgiving is the following week.  EEEEK.  When did that happen?!

Thanksgiving 2014

It seems way too early to post this, but here goes.  

No Knead Bread (for eating)
Bread Machine White Bread (for stuffing)

Breakfast: Bundt Cakeeggs, grapefruit, sausage or bacon
Lunch: sandwich stuff
Dinner: chilihot water cornbread

Breakfast: croissants from local pastry chef, eggs, sausage or bacon
Dinner: Leftovers!

Cooking Plan
Previous week - Make double batch of chili for dinner and freeze extra

Monday - Casserole assembly day.  I need to get the green bean casserole and sweet potato casserole together so that they'll be ready to bake once the turkey comes out of the oven.  I'll also try to get the pumpkin bread made so I can take a loaf to my voice teacher.  

Tuesday - Bread day.  I'll do the stuffing bread in the machine and get the no knead bread started so that I can bake it on Wednesday.  

Wednesday - Bake the bread in the evening.

Thursday - Get turkey roasting.  Make stuffing and mashed potatoes.  Cook casseroles after turkey comes out of the oven.
