Thanksgiving Meal Plan Monday

Who's excited for the second annual Thanksgiving themed Meal Plan Monday?

You are!  Right?  Better be.

Did you miss last year's Thanksgiving Meal Plan?  Are you upset about it?  Don't be!  You can read about it {here}.

Finally this year's big feast is upon us.

And I actually feel so well prepared for it.

I've already made the initial grocery store run.  The turkey is ready for it's brine bath.  The stuffing bread is ready to dry out.  The next grocery list is made.  This whole organization thing is blissfully disgusting sometimes.

Now all I'm missing is my parents.  But it won't be long.  Their plane arrives tonight and I couldn't be more excited.  For some reason the gap between seeing them in August this year to now seems far bigger than it did last year.  It's going to be a week full of feasting, shopping, sightseeing, card playing, and just a whole lot of fun.  Do any of you Bostonians have any hidden gem sightseeing spots up your sleeve?  You can only walk the freedom trail so many times you know.

So, now you know what I have going on for the week...but what are YOU doing for Thanksgiving?  Traveling to different family Thanksgivings?  Making your own feast?  Going out to dinner?  And for everyone not in the U.S., I still want to know what you are up to this week!  What's going on in your kitchen?

Just a heads up.  You might want to check back later in the week.  I might be....I don't know...doing a...giveaway...or uh...something like that.  Maybe to show you how thankful I am for you as a reader.  I mean...maybe. 

Have a great holiday!

  1. If I book my plane ticket now, could I come to your Thanksgiving day meal? *hehe* All the food looks YUMMY! :)

  2. This all DOES look yummy! That picture of the brussel sprouts is mouthwatering. I cannot get enough brussel sprouts this time of year! For Thanksgiving, we have two different family gatherings.. the first is at my house where we do an un-traditional Thanksgiving meal. This year my mom is making her homemade lasagna recipe and I am making a dairy-free stuffed shell recipe. Then we do our more traditional Thanksgiving a few days later. Brussels will definitely be making an appearance :) Have a happy holiday!!
