Three Things Thursday

1.  While eating Tofu Tacos on Tuesday night I mentioned to the husband that I thought crumbled extra firm tofu would be a great substitute for meat {beef, chicken, or turkey} in Sloppy Joe’s.  Of course I had to Google it and low and behold I was not the first person to think this!  Regardless … its on the menu for next week :) --- I’ll share the recipe if it turns out good. 

2.  Speaking of menus … I spent a good chuck of my Wednesday morning get my Thanksgiving recipes and grocery shopping list ready.  We’ve already got two frozen turkey breasts in the freezer but we’ll be getting the rest of the ingredients for the big meal this weekend when we do our regular grocery shopping.  Since I have all the time in the world right now I am going to really put it to good use next week and do lots of prep in advance.  Like clean & chop all the veggies, hard boil all the eggs, and make the chicken stock before my mom & step-dad arrive on Wednesday.  I plan to spend Wednesday baking a pie and prepping any food that I can since I’ll be gone most of the morning on Thanksgiving for the Run to Feed the Hungry --- this will the 5th year in a row that me & the husband have participated in the race on Thanksgiving morning!  It was actually the first race we ever did together back in 2007!  I’ll post all the details for my Thanksgiving meal plan next Monday for Meal Plan Monday :)

3.  Today I plan to spend today in bed curled up with lots of hot tea and the puppy & kitty while watching TV/movies since yesterday afternoon I started coming down with flu-y symptoms.  I’ve got an arsenal of DayQuil & NightQuil and I hope to be feeling better soon.  I took advantage of some time this morning right after taking DayQuil when I was feeling “better” to prep all the veggies for dinner tonight just in case I feel worse later.  I’m looking forward to a big bowl of Tomato Orzo Soup for dinner.  Its been a long time since I’ve felt this sick.  I blame the lack of running {its been 18 days} and I probably picked this little virus up while sitting in the doctors office on Monday :(


Happy Thursday!
What’s on your mind today?
