Menu Plan Monday - November 23

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving/Ingathering at our church this morning. I was so blessed - from our own Newell and Colleen Cerak's testimony (they had never really given a formal testimony to our church), to the baptism, child dedications and the great music. The spirit of God was there! Then we all enjoyed the annual ingathering dinner - a feast of turkey, mashed potatoes and all the trimmings. The cooks at the church are so great that I took a lot of my recipes for this week's menu from the Gaylord Evangelical Free Cookbook!

How can my day be spoiled after that? Well, I have been hit by a nasty cold virus tonight and I am MISERABLE! Hopefully this menu that I have planned will work and I will be able to pull it off.

Organizing Junkie is the place to go for the list of plans.

I have decided to forgo a menu for this week. We will all be all over the place and I just don't even know what or when we will be eating.
