This meal may change based on what I get when I go grocery shopping tomorrow.

Take out night!

I work all day so the kids eat before I get home (whatever my husband scrapes together for them) and my husband and I eat something simple like pasta

In all honesty, whenever I plan something to eat for Sunday we always end up making something different. It is just too far ahead for me to plan. We will end up having something that we already have on hand or whatever I buy at the grocery store that is a great deal.

This week I will be doing some practice runs making homemade rolls so that when Thanksgiving comes around I will have the recipe down pat. I am going to experiment with baking them a bit earlier in the day and then reheating them in the oven. If it works out then that is one more thing that I don't have to make last minute while I am trying to cook the other food on Thanksgiving.

I am also going to make homemade cranberry sauce to practice. My family likes the jelly kind out of the can so I am going to try and find a recipe to replicate that (minus the silly can lines). Hopefully it comes out Ok!
