Thanksgiving Menu Ideas

Thanksgiving Menu Ideas from Shutterbean.com!

Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away. Are we ready??

I’m not, but NOW IS THE TIME where I figure it all out.

Looking through my archives has given me a lot of inspiration, though. Here are some of my favorite recipes that are guaranteed to make your Thanksgiving holiday warm and bright.  And if you’re looking for a unique/tasty turkey recipe, Mark Bittman’s braised turkey is MY FAVORITE. I’ve used the recipe for the past 5 years.  It’s really made quite a few stress-free holidays.

Let’s looking into the Shutterbean archives for some Thanksgiving Menu Ideas!

Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, friends!

This weekend was a combination of productive, fun and restful! Went out to dinner with my bro & sister and spent the night at my parent’s house in the city.  Stayed up real late with cocktails!  So fun!

When I got home, we spent the whole day in bed on Saturday watching movies as a family. The air is so bad up here in Northern California that we spent most of the weekend inside for the rest of the weekend.   I made my closet look nice and organized again.  I also did some meal prep and knocked off a bunch of things on my TO DO LIST.  While I was working around the house, I ordered a Costco delivery from Instacart ( here’s $10 off your first order! ) and it was SOOOOOO helpful. It saved me so much time having food and supplies delivered to the house. We’re in good shape for the week!

Here’s my meal prep:
