The week of Thanksgiving is upon us! In the spirit of consistency I wanted to keep continue with the meal plan but if you’re hosting Thanksgiving and doing a ton of cooking… It’s ok if you eat out everyday. This is the Olympics of cooking and you need to get your head in the game. Either way I am here for you! Let’s get into this weeks meals! This week I’m going to add a bit of commentary to make sure that it helps you guys when making these recipes.

First, I provide links to recipes because it’s easier for you to have a guide to help you. I also don’t measure anything so I don’t think you will appreciate me telling you to just throw a handful of *insert item* in until it tastes good. Bear with me while I work on actually writing recipes.

The Grocery lists are meant to help you so you don’t have to go through all the recipes and make the list yourself. BUT you should still look through the recipes to see what and HOW MUCH of an item you might need. If the recipes only call a tbsp of something, please don’t go out and buy a boatload of it.
