The holidays can be a busy time. This year 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 Thanksgiving meal preparations to make your holiday cooking run smoother. “Make ahead” options are available each day that will save you time!
Here are my suggested dinner ideas with links to the recipes from November 22 to November 28.
Tuesday Dinner – November 23
- NW One-Bowl Meal
- Make Ahead –
- 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.
- 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.
Thursday – Happy Thanksgiving
