Thanksgiving Week Meal Plan – November 23rd – November 29

The holidays can be a busy time. With the added uncertainty 2020 has brought, I wanted to support you with a healthy menu plan for the week of Thanksgiving!  Seven days of dinner recipes to help de-stress your life this week. As an added bonus, I have included some Thanksgiving meal preparations to make your holiday cooking run smoother. 

Here are my suggested dinner ideas with links to the recipes from November 23 to November 29.

Monday Dinner – November 23

Tuesday Dinner – November 24

  • NW One-Bowl Meal
  • Make Ahead – 
    1. Cook an extra 2 cups of wild rice mix for Holiday Butternut Squash Wild Rice Pilaf served on Thanksgiving. I am going to double the pilaf recipe on Thanksgiving, so I will be cooking 3 cups of wild rice mix with 6 cups of broth to make both recipes.
    2. Roast an extra 1 ½ cups of butternut squash for Holiday Butternut Squash Wild Rice Pilaf.  I am doubling the pilaf recipe so will roast 2 butternut squash. This will give me extra cooked squash to use for lunches.  I enjoy adding squash to my salads.

Wednesday Dinner – November 25

    1. Thank you Yvonne! I appreciate your kind comment. My comfort food loving family liked both the pot pie and pumpkin pie crusts. You can omit the herbs in the pot pie crust and use that for a dessert pie too. It’s fun to find tasty GF, DF and egg-free recipes.
