Hey, I’m back! Did’ya miss me? 😘 Well, this week’s meal plan is ready for Mid-Century Menu Monday! Is anyone else working on their seasonal cleaning this week? I expect my seasonal cleaning (I do both spring and fall cleaning) will take about two weeks this year, which gives me just enough time to get my seasonal cleaning done before I start Thanksgiving prep. Since this is my favorite time of year, I get all excited! I try to do my cleaning by Thanksgiving, I make a huge old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner, and then I do my annual Vintage Christmas Challenge during December! I love it! OK, back to meal plans! Here is Mid-Century Menu Monday for November 11-17.
