Hey! It’s been a week already? It’s been a pretty busy week, but what else is new? This week will be pretty busy, too… I had doctor appointments today, my mom will be coming for Thanksgiving, and then I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner…. all that doesn’t seem like too much, but it is when it’s piled on top of everything else I want/need to get done this week.
Also, the old anxiety disorder makes everything seem worse than it is. Time is a huge stressor for me, and, if I feel like I’m not going to finish something or I’m going to be late, I’ll get really, really stressed out.
Long story short: I don’t know how many posts are going to happen this week. I want to get back into the swing of posting regularly, but this might not be the week that happens. Although, I kinda have some big news to share. I was going to do it today, but I think it deserves it’s own post. So, stay tuned tomorrow for something epically awesome news, everyone!
I guess I’ll stop rambling now and get to the point. Here’s my menu plan, including my awesome Thanksgiving Menu!
- Lasagna Rolls (Meatless)
- Tuna Noodle Casserole (Seafood)
- Homemade Hamburger Helper
- Thanksgiving – Turkey, Gravy, Stuffing, Baked Corn, Green Bean Bundles, Mashed Potatoes, and White Chocolate Cranberry Cheesecake with Homemade Whipped Cream
- Turkey Soup
- Leftovers or Whatever I Can Throw Together.
I’m not sure how long the leftovers will stretch, but I’m planning not to cook, other than soup, until the following Monday. I haz the lazies.
Also, I had these huge plans to attempt to make my own stuffing (I call it stuffing, even if it’s not stuffed into the bird. I had never heard the term ‘dressing’ until I went to college.). I have never made my own, and I thought this recipe from Kelli’s Retro Kitchen Arts sounded wonderful. However, I was sick and busy and stressed about it, and Daniel told me to just use Stovetop like usual and plan ahead to make that recipe for Christmas. So, that’s what I’m doing. Now I feel bad, but it’s the only thing I cheat on at holidays. Christmas will be different!
