Menu Plan Monday: Happy Thanksgiving!

It is Canadian Thanksgiving today, where most families have a turkey coma. We are having spaghetti for ours.

Actually, most of my family had Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, with the Hubby's family, and I had mine much later that night, after work. Yummy turkey, stuffing, potatoes and gravy. I was able to enjoy the turkey goodness without the work or the dishes and ended my meal with three dishes to wash: my plate, fork and knife.

We have a busy week ahead of us, including celebrating my little sous chef's birthday this week! Since he was premature but born with no health problems and able to come home right away, Thanksgiving for us is more about him than about turkey.

It is also our family tradition that the birthday person gets to pick the menu for that night, so try and guess which one he picked!

Sunday: Leftovers and canned soup with cheese and crackers. We ate together as a family but no one had the same thing to eat.

Monday: Spaghetti, being made by the Hubby right now as I get ready to go to work.

Tuesday: Homemade Make your own pizza.

Wednesday: Hamburgers with coleslaw and sweet potato fries.

Thursday: Chili with tortilla chips.

Friday: Don't know yet, will depend on if we have company or not.

So? Did you guess which menu item was chosen by a 7 year old? If you said pizza, you were right!

Oddly enough, he also picked cheesecake for his cake, which is what his brother did in February. Not sure why, though, since in February he refused to touch the cheesecake, so we will see if I make one he will eat.

Be sure to add your own menu plan in to Menu Plan Monday, hosted by I'm an Organizing Junkie.

And have a great Thanksgiving!

Happy almost birthday to your sous-chef! And Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you and your family.

No turkey coma today? That's always the best part!

Enjoy your nontraditional T-day dinner. We are having roasted chicken since my husband doesn't like turkey.
