Menu Plan Monday~Nov 30th

You would think after all the food I've eaten this past weekend that I couldn't possibly talk about food today, but here I am, planning those dinner menus again.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was really nice: good family time and two ridiculously huge dinners. I have some yummy recipes to share with you this week. I think I've finally found my favorite cranberry sauce, after trying many recipes over the years. It was amazing with the turkey!

I'm planning to keep the dinners simple this week. I've still got just a bit of Christmas decorating to wrap up and I'd like to get ahead a bit with homeschool, too, so maybe we can start our Christmas break earlier than I had scheduled. That's always fun, isn't it?!

Monday: Pasta with fresh tomato-garlic sauce *(something new I'm creating)
Tuesday: Baked salmon, baked potatoes & a veggie
Wednesday: Steak Fajitas with rice
Thursday: Cajun Dirty Rice with smoked sausage
Friday: (visiting a small group from our church)
Saturday: homemade pizza

Hopefully next week I'll have more time to plan and be more creative with dinners again!

Looks great Lora! We are also trying to get Christmas decorations up (hubby had to run out for more lights at 8 pm last night - a now-running tradition that we hope not to continue next year!)

The tomato garlic sauce sounds delicious. If it came out well, I'd love to have the recipe.
