This is a great idea to spread some Christmas cheer.

So I realize that its Sunday but I have to get a jump start on this because I work late tonight and I have to go to the store tomorrow. Last week planning ahead really saved me time. In 3 meals I made enough food for the whole week with some still left over. I think we'll only have enough leftovers for monday, and with thanksgiving coming I got to figure out how what to do with all those leftovers. So onto it...
Monday- Leftovers of Hot dish
Wednesday- Leftover spaghetti
Friday- Thanksgiving part deux
Saturday- Turkey Chili
We've got a lot going on this week but I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving.

I'm not sure how many people out there read my blog but I want to help out Mocha Momma and her school. This purse drive is an easy way for me to get rid of some purses that I've hardly used and then give them to some high schoolers who need them. So, just click on the pink purse on the right of the page to find out more.

In order to try and get more organized and perhaps to save more money, I read a lot of different blogs and recently I've been reading orgjunkie.com. She plans her meals for each week on Sunday nights. So I thought I'd give it a shot. She is all fancy and has links to her recipes. A lot of times I just make them up as I go but I'll do the best I can.
This week seems like its going to be busy. I'm making meals that will make a lot of food so we can have leftovers a lot. Its ambitious but we'll give it a try.
Monday- Sesame Noodle Stir Fry (basic recipe here adding chicken and veggies to stretch it out)
Tuesday- Hot Dish (its pretty much what I call a generic cassarole. I take egg noodles, some sort of ground meat, some sort of veggie, and then a sauce or cream of something soup i have on hand. A true pantry meal and its never the same.)
Wednesday- Slow Cooker Chili (This recipe isn't made for the crockpot. I'm trying it out.)
Friday- Leftovers or eatout?
Saturday- Spaghetti and Meatballs
Sunday- If any left leftovers or soup and sandwiches.
