Weekend Meal Planning
The weather has finally turned to a pretty consistent cold here, the leaves seemed to brown and fall of the trees almost overnight and Thanksgiving is only a few days away. It feels like the holidays barreled in like a freight train - not sure I'm exactly ready. LOL For the time being, I get to sit around biting my nails while I wait to find out if I'm invited back for a 6th year of the Review Crew - fingers crossed.
Usually, for Thanksgiving, my husband makes a turkey and homemade cranberry sauce and I make most of the sides and we have a big family dinner. However, early in the year our fridge stopped working and the housing office replaced it with a fridge that would be more than sufficient for a small family, but for a family of 5, it is way too small. There's no way I could fit the leftovers in there (as it is, two dozen eggs and a gallon of milk takes up the bulk of it). So we decided to skip the big dinner this year and go out to eat. (I'm going to be keeping an eye on Black Friday deals for a cheap fridge to put in the garage to give myself extra room. ) So who knows what we'll eat that day - Buffalo Wild Wings? Outback? Indian food? We shall see.
