Meal Plan Monday {Nov 28} + WW {Wk 28}

Thanksgiving was a success!  I spent most of the week leading up to Thursday in the kitchen prepping and I’m so glad I did because it sure made Thanksgiving day that much easier.  I’m very happy with all the recipes I used this year {Traditional Crock Pot Stuffing, Alton Brown’s Best Ever Green Bean Casserole, Scalloped Potatoes with Caramelized Onions, Martha Stewart’s Fool Proof Pie Crust, Traditional Apple Pie filling}.  I definitely overestimated how much turkey we needed which meant my mom got to take a lot of turkey home with her for leftovers and we still have a lot left which I plan to put to good use this week in a soup recipe. 

We spent the day after Thanksgiving lounging around the house watching an all day Storage Wars marathon on A&E and eating leftovers.  On Saturday we spent the day with my MIL at the Dickens Faire and on Sunday we did a little bit of Christmas decoration shopping after we discovered our outdoor lights no longer worked and we needed new ones. 

Monday ~ Turkey Noodle Soup

I’ll be loosely following this recipe but I’ll cook it on the stove top and I’ll be using leftover turkey from Thanksgiving.

Tuesday ~ Spinach & Feta Pasta

Wednesday ~ Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

Either over rice or in tortillas

Thursday ~ leftovers

Friday ~ Pasta with marinara sauce & Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs

Pre-race carb up day #1

Saturday ~ leftover pasta with marinara sauce

Pre-race carb up day #2

Sunday ~ out for post race pizza
