How was your Thanksgiving? Last week I shared my menu plan for a perfect Thanksgiving and it was just about perfect to me. Spending time with family ruled the weekend and we had a blast doing puzzles, watching movies and enjoying some gorgeous spring like weather outside. The empanadas were a hit using leftover turkey meat and Caribbean beef.

Are you a Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopper? I did score some amazing deals for my blog ($10/year hosting for life) and renewed my Plan to Eat* subscription. Now that I’m on a stricter diet and it’s helping my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain, we eat in a lot more which means I have to always be ready to cook. Plan to Eat saves the day and I highly recommend giving it a try!
It’s back to the grind this week and we woke up to cooler weather and rain. Time to pull out some comfort foods to get us through the week. This is a short menu planning post. I started menu planning on Thursdays to make sure I had fresh food over the weekend when the boys are all home and I don’t want to spend time grocery shopping.
The only topic I like to chat about as much as books is food! If you have a menu plan or a delicious recipe you want to share, feel free to link it up with our Small Victories Sunday Linkup. I’m always looking for new recipes to try.
This Week’s Menu Plan:
Make Harvest Chicken Salad with Apples and Pecans from Cooking and Beer using leftover turkey. Put it on croissant for Superhubby’s lunch. I’ll eat it on a bed of lettuce.
Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Banana Muffins from Eat Good 4 Life (they’re dairy free too)
French Toast, sausage and fruit for the boys
Leftovers because it’s my usual grocery shopping day
