Just another manic Monday

Conferences are almost all wrapped up, which is a wonderful feeling. I had back-to-backs all afternoon Thursday and Friday, and the wonderful hubs brought me a soy chai each day. Friday night I also volunteered at Turkey Bingo night until 8 p.m. (where winners walked out with turkeys and/or Costco pies – one of my kids won two of each!). This meant that I completely missed my debut on Foodista as their featured drink blogger of the day!

Sigh. Once conferences are over I’ll be a bit more on top of things. I am on top of things just enough to make a meal plan, however.

Meal Plan Monday

Meatless Monday

Spicy Lentil Wraps (Trader Joe’s – I plan to re-create this soon, so I had to buy one for the ingredient list)


Prosciutto Leak Red Quinoa Lasagna


Turkey Italian Sausage Orzo Stoup (recipe to come)


Happy Thanksgiving! We’re going to the hubs’ parents and are responsible for the salad and a veggie. The salad will be mixed greens topped with toasted pecans, dried cherries, goat cheese and homemade shallot honey dijon dressing. The veggie will be roasted butternut (from our garden!) with sweet onions and crimini mushrooms. Mmmmm, heavenly!


Leftovers πŸ™‚


Coconut Lime Chicken with Chiles


Something in the slow cooker…suggestions welcome! I’ve been pinning away, but am always looking for tried and true recipes. I linked up at the Once a Month Mom Linky Party – and plan to check out the other blogs. If you haven’t been to OAMM yet, check it out – great time saving tips!

What are your plans for Thanksgiving?
