Meal Planning Monday #64 Thanksgiving Week Edition!

It’s Thanksgiving Week!
Eeks!
Are you excited?
Stressed?
Busy?
Crazy?
All of the above????
This week, my kiddos are home and I’m baking and cooking for the big day pretty much all week.  Plus…next week is going to be HUGE.  Like GIGANTIC. MIND BLOWING actually.  Sheaffer and I have so many fun things up our sleeves for that first week of December that you’re going to flip.
So, this week, we need to keep things in the kitchen simple.  No one wants to cook up big meals before they cook up Thanksgiving, so these are all easy slow cooker meals that are waiting on you and your family each evening during this joyous (and slightly crazy) week.
Pasta Fagioli is such a yummy comforting supper to have on a busy week.
Brown Sugar Brisket is so good on it’s on or you can wrap it up in a tortilla with some cheese and salsa for a taco, put it on a burger bun with BBQ sauce like a sandwich or top a baked potato with it.  This is really good when feeding a crowd (hello, out of town guests!).
My Chicken and Noodles is just a bowl of comfort on a cold fall night.
A little Mexican Beef over Cornbread is a far departure from Turkey and Dressing…a nice change up after you’ve been eating leftovers several days in a row.
And if you’re still looking for Thanksgiving Day dessert recipes…

    I've never made your brown sugar brisket! I'm trying that immediately!

    Your Mexican beef and cornbread was one of my favorite meals last winter….and loved making it with the cornbread waffles!
