Meal Planning Sunday

Meal Planning Sunday #3

Welcome! It is the home stretch, Thanksgiving week. I have said in the past that I host between 20 and 30 people in our home each year. This weekend I had to create a menu which did not take up too much fridge space, but also I did not want many leftovers. I also needed quick, easy, and simple this week.

Sunday: Football food. Have you ever heard of Washington Nachos? Waffle fries with nacho toppings. YUM!

Monday: Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. My favorite Alfredo sauce is from the Betty Crocker cookbook. You can find it here. I like to serve this with a big side salad.

So much flavor from such a simple sauce.  This classic Alfredo made of butter, cream and Parmesan cheese is perfect for fettuccine.:

Tuesday: Chicken quesadillas and a side salad.

Wednesday: I picked up a dish of homemade mac and cheese from Costco. It cooks in it’s own pan and I am going to cook it on our grill. This will be so helpful while preparing for Thanksgiving the next day.

Thursday: Thanksgiving Dinner

Wolf places such precise control in your hands, you’ll cook with confidence that the dish you have in mind will be the dish you bring to the table. It's just like Magic ;-):

Friday: The best part of hosting Thanksgiving is all the leftovers (I also make sure that no one leaves empty handed).

Lol, I wish I could get away with this! Quirky Quotes by VintageJennie at Etsy.com | "Not Cooking":

Saturday: Ham and bean soup. I love using the left over ham to make this yummy soup and I serve it with crusty rolls.

Thanks for stopping by today. This week is 100% NOT healthy, but is is 100% easy and simple which is just what I need. Have a great week.

  1. I’ve never heard of Washington Nachos, but it sounds delicious!! We have a very similar menu this week. I want simple so I can enjoy the week with the family.
    I’ve never thought about cooking macaroni on the grill either. My husband would be all about that!!
    Have a great week, Jenna!

    1. My husband is pretty excited as well. Some of my colleagues were talking about it during lunch last week and they said it was the best. Have a great week Emily and I hope you get a lot of quality time with the people you love!
