Menu Plan Monday - Be Thankful

Ahhh Turkey week! But why does turkey only get one day of glory?? When I was young my dad would have a two-week vacation that he could get anytime of the year. He'd usually take it right before summer or at the end of summer. We'd always make a week to get ready and prepare to cook ourselves a delicious turkey, sometimes ham. Anyways, I'd kept the tradition alive. Some time during the year I buy a turkey and bake a pie. I just thought I'd share that....

We actually have no idea what we'll be doing for this Thanksgiving. We were invited by my grandmother to her home, but we don't know what will be served, I was just asked to bring the dessert I was thinking of making some traditional brownies, maybe add walnuts. Then I plan on coming back home and playing the wii with the family. I also plan on bringing home any leftovers. Usually no one likes to take leftovers, but I love them.

Here's the menu for this week:

Monday - Ham sammies & potato salad

Tuesday - Breaded Italian chicken with scalloped potatoes

Wednesday - Egg salad sandwiches with steamed veggies

Thursday - Turkey Dinner

Friday - Leftovers (hopefully turkey pot-pie)

I looked through some of website and saw some awesome meals that can be used with leftovers that we may have. My favorite is throwing all the veggies, turkey and gravy and topping it with a homemade crust for a delicious and flavorful pot pie!



  1. Turkey Pot Pie is awesome! I love to use leftovers for that!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
