When I woke up this morning absolutely STARVING, I thought back immediately to my previous Black Friday posts when I felt the same way and said the exact same thing. It’s a good thing I am not one to think twice about the amount of food I eat on Thanksgiving because trying to make up for it by eating less today would just not work for me and isn’t the way to do things anyway.
So the Thanksgiving food. It was simply wonderful. I didn’t get many pictures but my plate was piled up with side dishes and if you ask me to pick a favorite I really don’t think that I can.
Do you organize the food on your plate or pile it into a mess like I do?
My sweet potato casserole came out amazing as did my dark chocolate chunk cookie cake which we have decided is the single best dessert I have ever created in my entire baking life.
I did not get a great picture of this incredibly chocolately without overpowering you cookie cake but I do plan on making it again soon and will share the recipe with you so that you can win friends and influence people too.
I will say that one of the keys to making this dark chocolate chunk cookie cake was chopping up half of this Dark Chocolate Pound Plus Bar from Trader Joe’s.
Are you hitting the stores for the Black Friday deals today? I do not think that I am but I will probably need to hit up Trader Joe’s because we have no food left in the house!
I focused my grocery shopping all week on Thanksgiving that now our regular staples are running low.
I did put together next week’s meal plan so let’s take a look.
If you have leftover sweet potato casserole, this recipe for Leftover Sweet Potato Casserole Steel Cut Oatmeal is genius!
Monday – Crock Pot Sweet Potato Chipotle Chili – I don’t have a crockpot but I figured I can make it anyway and modify it a bit.
Tuesday – Pizza night! With side salads.
Wednesday – In the city for an event
Thursday – Winter Bliss Bowl
Friday – Not Cooking (or loaded baked potatoes if I decide to stay home)
Saturday – Not Cooking
Sunday – Meatless Meatballs (regular meatballs for my son) with spaghetti squash.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend 🙂Thanksgiving Highlights & Next Week's Meal Plan #Thanksgiving #mealplanning #darkchocolate #fitlfuential #traderjoes Click To Tweet
