Thankful Week Menu


The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for November 19th – 25th


Notes: It's Thanksgiving Week! That means we eat up leftovers in order to make room for all that Turkey Day goodness and then we spend the next week eating Thanksgiving leftovers! I am very thankful for this as our grocery budget needs a bit of breathing room.... there have been some "extras" on the list these last few weeks that I've been unable to purchase... I find it daunting when I go to the store with a list of just a dozen or so things, a cart only a third full and the register rings it all up for over $50. That's 2/3 of the grocery budget! Eek!
