Thanksgiving Week Meal Plan

With Thanksgiving falling during this week my meal planning was a bit lighter than usual. Add that to a shortened work week for all of us and where no leftovers were needed for lunches meant a small break for me come dinner time. Although, I did still come up with some pretty yummy meals for the nights I did have to cook.

Here are the dinners we enjoyed this week.

Saturday: butternut squash with bacon and egg centers (My new favorite meal)


Sunday: General Tso’s chicken and broccoli over rice (take out made at home)


Monday: veggie marinara over cheese tortellini (meatless)


Tuesday: Korean BBQ pork over farrow with homemade creamy coleslaw


Wednesday: quinoa sweet potato chili (meatless) (recipe coming soon)


Thursday: Thanksgiving dinner

Friday: left overs-stuffed squash with turkey,stuffing, and sprouts then covered with melted parmesan cheese.


That sums up this past week in meals. As for the upcoming weeks ahead, I am excited to begin planning my Christmas menus. I am thinking about trying a goat cheese log with apricot preserves drizzled on top with some crusty bread or crackers on the side. I am also trying to come up with a yummy appetizer that is made using wonton wrappers since these have become a new family favorite.

Do you do traditional ham for Christmas?

What are your family traditions….if you care to share them?

  1. These meals look delicious…I cannot wait for the Chili recipe!
    For the squash meals- did you scoop out the squash and refill the skins? What a creative way to use leftovers.
    As always, thanks for sharing!

    • Yes, scoop out the inside, spray a baking sheet and lay cut side down and bake at 400 degrees for approx. 20 minutes. In the meantime, prepare your filling with leftovers by chopping and mixing everything together. Take your squash out, flip it over, and fill it with the filling. Cover it with cheese, and bake another 10 minutes or so until the filling is hot and cheese is melted. Enjoy!

      And the chili was great, I will be posting the recipe within the next two weeks.

      Tanks for reading;-)
