Food Plan 112209

The week of Thanksgiving, can you believe it's here already?  I'm dumbfounded. 

I'm going to try to keep this weeks meals simple because I'm going to be brining a turkey and preparing stuffing for the Turkey Dinner at my brother's house.  That means prep here and bring it over.

Ouch.  However, realize I bought 2 turkeys, 1 to share and 1 to make "leftovers" from.  And it is worth the cost to keep ones sanity, don't you think?  In other words, why I bought frozen pizza even when I have a freezer half-full of food.
