MEAL PLAN TIPS:
Thanksgiving week is here! Are you as ready for it as I am?!
This week, we have two large Thanksgiving meals – one for my extended family for lunch on Sunday before Thanksgiving (notice I have Breakfast for Supper on Sunday for our meal plan after all the big family lunch!) and then our traditional Thanksgiving meal on Thursday. I’m planning on being prepared well in advance so that I can enjoy the day, too!
I’ll be using my Make Ahead Thanksgiving Recipes and Meal Plan tips and prepping ahead. That way, I can spend time watching the Macy’s Day Parade instead of fretting over the food!
Balsamic Beef French Dip Sandwiches: This Balsamic Roast Beef is one of my family’s favorites – so much so that I added it to my cookbook. It’s also been a reader favorite too!
Since I’m in make ahead mode for Thanksgiving, tonight’s supper is an easy one I know we’ll all enjoy.
I’ll make the Balsamic Roast Beef in the slow cooker today and make these delicious sandwiches for supper! The gravy from this roast is so delicious for dipping!
Sunday: Breakfast for Supper
We are having an extended family Thanksgiving meal at lunch today, so supper needs to be simple and easy. What a perfect time to enjoy some breakfast for supper!
The French Toast comes together in minutes and is always a delicious favorite!
I will cook the bacon in the oven at time for supper, but you can cook it ahead if you wish.
Fettuccini Alfredo (Alfredo Sauce recipe): This classic Alfredo Sauce is scrumptious and comforting – the best I’ve personally tasted! And it’s so easy to make and on the table in less than 30 minutes. Perfect over cooked pasta, tonight it is served over fettuccini.
Chicken Enchiladas: I’m loving how much easier supper is tonight since I’ve cooked my chicken ahead in my slow cooker. I also keep my homemade Enchilada Sauce on hand that I’ll use in these.
Make Ahead Thanksgiving Recipes: I hope you find the tips I’ve shared so helpful to make this today relaxed and a special time with family and friends! I love having time to watch the parade with my family every year and I’ve made the food ahead, so today is fun for us all!
Turkey Day, Take Two! Turkey Salad, Wraps and more with Leftovers:
This is always a favorite food day! There’s nothing like this easy, quick Turkey Salad, a thick Turkey Sandwich Wrap and all those delicious leftovers from yesterday! I plan to relax today and spend time with my guys!
Have a wonderful week and a happy Thanksgiving!
