Menu Plan Monday is a collection of family-favorite recipes. Each week is filled with delicious dinners and dessert ideas!
All right everyone, we did it! We’ve made it to the biggest food week of the entire year, Thanksgiving week. This edition of Menu Plan Monday is going to be an extra special one because of this amazing holiday.
Before I start, I want to say that I am so thankful for my incredible husband Kale, my beautiful kids, my extended family, and for you all being here every week. Without all of your support with Life in the Lofthouse.com I wouldn’t be able to do what I love. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you. 🙂
I know that you might be overwhelmed with the amount of preparation that will go into this week, so I wanted to focus on the main meal, Thanksgiving dinner! I’ve got you covered for each course including all the fixings.
I am so excited for you to try my Crock Pot Creamy Mashed Potatoes. If your family is like mine, then mashed potatoes are the number one side that everybody wants seconds or third helpings of. This recipe will make plenty to feed your entire family. You may even want to grab another crock pot to make a second batch if you’re feeding a really big crowd.
You can’t have a proper Thanksgiving meal without dessert. Even though we all get to the end where we are so full and couldn’t possibly eat another bite, there somehow seems to be room for a slice of pie. My Shredded Apple Pie is so satisfactory! Serve it warm with a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream to end this glorious feast on a sweet note.
I hope that you all get to spend a ton of wonderful quality time with your loved ones this week. Happy Thanksgiving!
From my kitchen to yours. –Holly xo
