Menu Plan Monday - November 22 - 27

>> Monday, November 22, 2010

It's been a long time since I've done a Menu Plan Monday post.  I don't know if anyone really finds these helpful or not.  Feel free to let me know if you like them, look forward to them or could really care less. ;)

I also want to tell all my friends & family in the US - Happy Thanksgiving! If you haven't planned your menu yet for the holiday; get to it! You'll need to get your turkey fresh if you wait much longer. And speaking of turkey don't forget to put it in the fridge to thaw if you already purchased yours.

Hope you all have a great week, enjoy your family and use up those leftovers!

Please note - I use organic, local ingredients when possible. Also the recipes usually call for all- purpose flour. I usually use a mix of 1/2 whole wheat & 1/2 white or just all whole wheat. Remember a recipe is just something to go by, feel free to change them up for health/your family's tastes.
