Thanksgiving Week Menu Plan

If any week is crazy, it is this one. Interesting that I don’t feel all that stressed. Hmmmm… Maybe a touch of “the calm before the storm” going on here. We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner again this year, something I love to do. We purchased a 20 lb turkey and have begun the process of getting all of the details figured out. When to make the pies, the cornbread, the cranberry sauce, etc. I am planning on doing as much as I can in advance so that we can do more socializing and wine drinking on Thanksgiving day. ;)

Food that I will be preparing:

We will also have (brought by family):

I am so excited! Several of us will be participating in a 4 mile race the morning of Thanksgiving. No better way to create a calorie deficit than to run before the meal! There will also be mass shopping on Black Friday to work off the rest of the meal and dessert. ;)

Sunday – Butternut Squash Soup & salad

Monday – Battered Chicken Fingers, baked steak fries, asparagus & salad

Tuesday -Taco Tuesday, black beans, corn & salad (Jon’s gotta have those tacos)

Wednesday -I am thinking take-out

Thursday – The Big Meal

Friday – Leftovers

Saturday-More Leftovers


Lemon bars (new mix to sample & review)


Pumpkin Pies

I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope that you will be able to spend it with those you love. :)

  • That's a beautiful meal, Kim! So glad you are not stressing. I'm not either, but I'm only making desserts (I think). I'm clearly not hosting this year ;-) , although a Thanksgiving with all desserts would be fun! LOL

    Good luck with your race! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Your Thanksgiving dinners are always wonderful, Kim! But for me – the best part is the family time we all get to spend together!

    Thanks for sharing your recipes. I'm THANKFUL for you, Kim. :-)

  • Thanks for all of your great recipes Kim! I have been diagnosed with a severe gluten allergy for almost 4 years and holidays (especially Thanksgiving) have been the toughest. Your recipes have been super helpful in feeling like I can eat a "normal" Thanksgiving meal while staying gluten free.
