Menu Monday 11/17

Heather says:
Thanksgiving is looming on the calendar and I have to clean out my fridge and make room for next week’s produce. I know I have been a little lax posting recipes and I hope to return to it this week or next. These weekly plans are what I hope to cook for the week, but I get off track like the rest of you mortals.* Sometimes I stand there with the fridge door hanging open hoping something will jump out at me and shout, “Here, cook me, I’m quick and no one will complain!” If some items were recently on the menu plan, chances are I didn’t get around to them.

Tell me, either via link or in the comments, what is on your menu this week?

    Tuesday thru Thursday: Easy Shrimp Paella (I didn’t cook last night; picked through the pantry and nibbled instead)
    Friday thru Saturday: Pizza (homemade)
    Sunday: Dinner with family, I bring the bread.

    What can I say? Being a college student can get complicated, but my meals definitely aren’t!

    I am cleaning out the fridge too. We are going out of town for Thanksgiving but I am bringing a lot of food with us to contribute to the meal. My family loves breakfast for dinner. It is probably their favorite meal!
    I have always made my shepherd’s pie with “white” sauce. My kids are not a big fan of gravy.
