Meal Plan Tips:
Thanksgiving week is upon us!
We have two Thanksgiving meals this week. One is for my extended family for lunch on Sunday before Thanksgiving (a big reason I have Breakfast for Supper on Sunday after our big family lunch!) and then our traditional Thanksgiving meal on Thursday. I plan 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 parade and talking to my family instead of stressing over the food!
Balsamic Beef French Dip Sandwiches: This Balsamic Roast Beef is one our favorites – so much so that I included it in 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 I wanted an easy supper. 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.
The Mini Quiche are so simple to make ahead and great to keep in the freezer. I like to have some made ahead during the holidays for parties and family gatherings.
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: Supper is super simple tonight since I’ve cooked my chicken ahead in my slow cooker. My easy Blender Enchilada Sauce only takes minutes to make and tastes so fresh and delicious.
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! It’s a great day to relax and spend time with your family today too!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
