So, Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I trust, if you’re in charge, you’ve got the turkey handled. As in, if it hasn’t been thawing for days, you’d better figure something else out.
But what about the rest of the meal? Have you planned that all out yet? Are you stuck? Are you about to head out to the grocery store? Hold on just a second, have I got a gift for you! A menu plan, just for Thanksgiving, WITH A PRINTABLE GROCERY LIST. Not only that, it’s a light Thanksgiving menu.
I put this grocery list together a little differently than our traditional Menu Plan Your Butt Off list. Instead of one big list divided by types of groceries, I’ve grouped the ingredients by recipe, so you can easily pick and choose what you want to make – and what you need to pick up at the supermarket.
I hope this takes some guesswork out of your Thanksgiving! Enjoy.
