Menu Plan Monday: Abridged Version

I laugh because every week since I have started this blog has been a strange week.  This being a holiday week, will also be strange.  I have to admit that I have read lots of Thanksgiving menu plans that are very elaborate.  However, my menu plan differs in that we are newlyweds.  Our families expect very little from us.  I'm thinking about possibly bringing cookies (made from cookie dough that I bought from one of my student's fundraisors).  I have made the elaborate Thanksgiving meal before when I was in college with my roommates, but this year will be nice and relaxing.  The menu plan for the week is as follows:

Monday:  Frozen Meatloaf Sandwiches, brocolli, apples
Tuesday:  Leftovers
Wednesday-Friday:  Eating with family and not responsible for bringing anything :)

It is really not an interesting week at all for menu planning.  However, I can't wait to see how the meatloaf turns out tonight.  This is the first meatloaf that I have frozen and then tried to bake.  I made sure to thaw it out completely, since I learned last time that it will take forever to bake otherwise.  My husband's response will be the real indicator, since he notices changes from the freezer more than I do.  I'll give you the update later.

Go to Organizing Junkie, for more menu plans.

  1. I've been married 15 years and my family still expects very little from me on the holidays, which I guess is nice. But then again, maybe they're trying to tell me something....
