After spending one whole weeks budget on our Thanksgiving meal I know that this week I have to make the best of all the left overs. Thursday was the best Thanksgiving I’ve ever had. It was just the six of us cooking, playing, and laughing together but that was exactly what this family needed. No intrusive, uncaring relatives invading our home stifling our simple jokes. No traveling to relatives houses where we scatter like mice only to see each other again on the car ride home. I am so thankful for these six people in my life that I’ve been teary-eyed for three days because of how happy I am to have each of them with me and alive! We have had 17 years of pure pain and hardships but it’s the small moments like Thursday that make those 17 years worth it and when hard times are here we are able to unite and push through. My children are truly my everything.
Here is week 27 menu. I will be using left overs from Thanksgiving.
Stuffing Frittata, Salad
Sweet Potato Cakes, Left-over Cranberry Walnut Salad
Turkey Chili, Fresh bread
Home-Made Beef and Cheesy Mac
