Menu Plan Monday - November 24, 2008

I'll be hosting about 25 family members on Thursday, so my plan is simple leading up to that day. I encountered a homeless family in my job this week and my interaction with them leads me to say: I am so thankful for a God who loves me, family, church family, friends, my job, a warm home, food to eat and enough of the things I need. Many in our great nation are not as fortunate. I am blessed. May you be as well. Happy Thanksgiving!

Monday - Chicken casserole (provided by my friend, Angie), salad, corn
Tuesday - Grilled ham & cheese sandwiches, tomato soup
Wednesday - My birthday (dinner here, I hope)
Thursday (Thanksgiving Day - US) - Fried turkey, spiral ham, dressing & gravy, green bean casserole, macaroni & cheese, Joe potatoes, corn salad, broccoli salad, buttermilk salad, veggie tray & ranch dip, relish tray (featuring Wickles), cranberry sauce (yes, my family prefers the kind out of a can), rolls, sweet potato & pecan pies, carrot cake (for my birthday)
Friday - I'll be shopping, we'll be eating leftovers.
Saturday - The Game (Alabama & Auburn) - glazed meatballs, cheese dip, chips, veggies & dip
Sunday - Finish off the leftovers!

Thank you for visiting my blog. There are lots of other great meal ideas at Org.Junkie!

You didn't even need to specify which game on Saturday. Being an Alabamian, I knew. I might have to try the meatballs for my hubby as he watches the game.

This recipe is so easy and the meatballs are so good. My guys just love them! As for Saturday, may the best team win:) Roll Tide!
