Menu Planning Monday - Cleaning out the fridge!

Oof! I have been a busy bee this morning. I must get organized. I keep thinking of blogging ideas that slip my mind. I just can't find time to write.





The name of the game this week is CLEANING OUT THE FRIDGE! Gotta make room for the Thanksgiving feast and leftovers.

Monday: Spaghetti w/ a lean ground turkey and lean ground Italian turkey sausage combo, whole wheat noodles for the hubby and corn noodles for me, crushed tomatoes as a sauce base... hope it's good. I have never used crushed tomatoes and seasoning only for a sauce.

Tuesday: Sweet & sour pork stir-fry w/ brown rice (homemade sauce using sugar-free preserves... Jamie Eason tweeted about this the other day, and I want to try it out! :) )

Wednesday: Tuna salad on Ezekiel bread for me, white bread for the hubs. I want to keep the ovens and stove tops FREE this day because I will be preparing so much food for Thanksgiving day.

Thursday: Uhm, turkey, what else? :P

The rest of the week is a toss up! We will be on the road. I don't know what food will be served. I'm going to adopt the Body for Life mentality while traveling -- protein the size of your palm, carbs the size of a fist, and the rest vegetables. I doubt I will stick to it 100%, but it's all good.
