Making a list, checking it twice

No, not that kind of Christmas-y list, my menu list...and house-prep list and so on. We're hosting a big crowd on Thursday, so I've been working on getting all my ducks in a row so the turkey day goes smoothly, otherwise everyone will be in a fowl mood (horrible joke, I know, I just couldn't help myself with all the bird references and all).

If you are looking for some last minute ideas for tasty side dishes, be sure to check out my Recipe Index for some inspiration.

Since this week is pretty heavy Turkey Day preparations, I've kept it super simple with our meals this week:

Breakfast for dinner, featuring Breakfast Tacos for Meatless Monday

Tuna Melt Sandwiches, Spinach Salad
Pantry Pasta*

Hopefully, this easy menu will give me plenty of time to chop, dice, stir, whisk, roast and bake my way to a delicious Thanksgiving!

*basically, I clean out my kitchen with "whatever we have on hand" and make a pasta dish, a great carbohydrate load before the big Turkey Trot my dad and I are running Thanksgiving morning

#if you can, be sure to save about 1/2 - 3/4 cup of sweet potatoes for this coming Monday's Meatless Monday challenge

Have a great Monday y'all,
