Meal plans and the week ahead

Happy Halloween!! This is going to be a fun week! This morning, we're heading to church. Then we'll be going over to my SIL's house later on for dinner and trick-or-treating. Tuesday I'm off of work for Election Day - gotta go vote!! Wednesday I'm having dinner out with some friends. Friday I'm off to prepare for Saturday, but I'll also be taking Carson to Kindermusik since I think we'll miss one of the days later in the semester... and I need to do the normal milk and CSA pickup. Saturday, we're having my dad's family over for Thanksgiving... yes, its really early, but this way we're not eating a ton of turkey and stuffing all in one weekend... and we can actually have some down-time over the holiday weekend. So it actually works out really well!

Wow, Thanksgiving already? That is early. Are you hosting? I'm glad Thanksgiving isn't for a few more weeks. I couldn't manage Thanksgiving dinner yet :P Hope I have my appetite back by the time we go to need an appetite there the way Justin's mom cooks.

Enjoy all of your chicken and turkey this week.
