Meal Planning (Week of Halloween)

As I type this blog post, I keep thinking of Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle picking up his phone to the tune of “Back in the Saddle Again” – only we’re getting back into meal planning and cooking.

I just browsed through the new Holiday Edition of Cooking Light and saw LOTS of great ideas for Thanksgiving (including a 550-calorie Thanksgiving meal… vs. the typical 3,000 calorie indulgence).

We won’t be making anything elaborate this week – it is the first week back in the saddle for us, after all! 🙂

  • roast
  • our spin on Cooking Light’s Maple-Glazed Chicken with Apple-Brussels Sprout Slaw (takes 20 minutes to cook!)
  • stuffed Turkey breast with Cheddar, Apples & Turkey Sausage
  • lentil/barley soup

I hope to be posting recipes & photos later this week! 🙂

Wow you’re good. Like I’ve said before. It was many, many months after my kiddos before I was able to even think about cooking.
