Thanksgiving Menu Plan and Menu Plan Monday

Happy Monday for those who are reading this today! Menu planning is a must in my house. It helps me save money, save time and save me from going totally gray! With 3 very busy teens I like to have food available for them to eat when they can. Half the time that means someone will eat it later in the evening or pack it up for lunch the next day. Either way I love to cook for my family and here is a menu for you to get some ideas. I'm also sharing my Thanksgiving Menu and links to recipes.

thanksgiving recipes

Our current Thanksgiving meal traditions include:

*Grandma B's Punch, stuffing which is called Potato Dressing, and White Turkey cut-out cookies 

*My traditional New Orleans Fried Turkey (there are a lot of recipes for this but all are basically the same), Mirliton Crawfish Casserole and Sweet Potato Praline Casserole

*Chocolate Chip Pie (Kentucky Derby Pie), Brownie Pecan PiePumpkin Cheesecake, Lemon pie with or without meringue and Rhubarb pie 

*Mashed potatoescrockpot sweet potatoes, homemade orange cranberry sauce, almond green beans, turkey shaped veggie tray, rolls and butter shaped as a turkey. (the poor turkey butter gets decapitated)

*Yummy wines

I hope you enjoy my Menu Planning Monday ideas. Feel free to go through the recipe box for other options. I don't know about you but I do find Dinner time menu planning easier in the fall because you can use your crockpot more!  I've linked up at OrgJunkie's Menu Plan Monday but not hosting my weekly link party until after the Holidays!
