Menu Plan–November 11

One week to go until we head into Thanksgiving!  I am really excited and ready for a time of rest and family.  And, of course, food. 

This week we’re talking Thanksgiving meals and leftovers – if you have a recipe you want me to share, please email me or post it on my Facebook Page!

Last week, I learned an important lesson: triple the roasted red pepper soup recipe, especially when serving it alongside whole wheat pizza stuffed pretzels; otherwise there will be none left because your husband will eat it all. 

I also learned that cheese-crusted lasagna soup still tastes good as leftovers despite leaving it sit in the pot too long so it became more like a stoup. 

I also learned that in 10 minutes the temperature can drop 10 degrees and that after a day with a high of 69 degrees, the next day can be 33 degrees and snowing.  That calls for a warm cup of snow tea, or maybe my first cup of hot cocoa for the season. 

I’m sure I’ll learn many things this week too, likely including how much I love my crockpot for busy weeks!
