Weekly Menu 11/29-12/5

Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of December? I’m so excited! Thanksgiving is over and now we’re in full on Holiday mode. Speaking of Thanksgiving, how was everyone’s? Ours was really lovely. I spent some of the afternoon with my mom before we headed over to Josh’s parents house. The food was delicious…however, I’m more health conscious than I was a few years ago so I had only the one helping of everything and my plate wasn’t piled high. :( I now kind of wished I would of indulged more, but I guess self-control is always a good thing to practice. And I guess I get to make up for it around Christmas time now :)

The week of Thanksgiving, our temps dropped really love. Some nights it got below 20 and during the day it was below freezing. We saw a bit of snow and a lot of ice. The ice was freaking me out a bit because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to make it to the store in time for everything I needed. I did end up making it out, but not to my local store. It made me mad because everything was more expensive at the store I went to so I had to cross off a lot of things that were on my list that I felt I could live without so I could stay within budget.  Was there crazy weather where you lived?
For the next few months, Josh has offered/volunteered to help make dinners on a more regular basis. He normally helps out a few times a week anyways, but Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays, if I don’t already have something pre-prepared he is cooking. I’m in the process of beginning to train for a marathon in March and I’m going to have to be at the gym longer than usual some nights, so Josh is helping me out with dinners. You’ll probably see an increase of crockpot meals in the weeks and months to come because I’ll be relying on those to help out with our dinner schedule. 
Josh made parmesean crusted grilled cheese sandwiches and warmed up an Organic Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup meal for us ( I was at the gym)
We have to go grocery shopping tonight, so I’m not sure. We might grab something out.
Crockpot Cheesy Chicken and rice with a veggie…maybe green beans
Homemade Taco Pizza
Crockpot Minestrone Soup with a side salad and rolls
Stuffed Peppers with rice
Honey-Ginger Chicken Stir-fry with Rice or noodles
I’ve got some leftover Cranberry Sauce from Thanksgiving so I think I’m going to use the leftovers to make some Cranberry Sauce Muffins from Two Peas and their Pod.
And maybe cookies of some sort…Not sure yet.
Sorry I didn’t post this yesterday. I was so busy cleaning the house, doing laundry, and organizing closets, hahaha!
