The Grocery List

Thanksgiving – it’s almost here!  Okay, I realize it’s two weeks away but my paychecks are twice a month and that’s how I measure the time to each next big event in our lives. For instance, Christmas is three paychecks away.  Scary, huh?  So for me, Thanksgiving is one paycheck away which is why you will find me at the grocery store this weekend, shopping for our Thanksgiving dinner (plus the weeks leading up to the big day).  A few years ago, I wrote out a menu plan for Thanksgiving week and have used the same list for a couple of years now.  I figure it's already written and been family tested so it's become tradition.  And I do like tradition.  Here, I share with you my (totally genius J) menu plan and shopping list.
