I love the week of Thanksgiving. I know in years when I have hosted the big dinner I have been so focused on the Thursday meal that I almost forget about meal planning for the days leading up to Thanksgiving. If you are in need of some quick and easy dinners for this week, I’ve linked a few here that you might be interested in. Yes, they are mainly soups but the best thing about soups is that you can get them prepped and walk away!
This one is a dinner your upper elementary or older kids could handle preparing without much help from you. Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels
Another quick one that your older kids could do with minimal supervision would be Chicken Fajita Melts
This one is a good one if you want a meatless meal, use vegetable broth rather than chicken broth and it can be vegetarian too! Tuscan Bean Soup
Then there is always Taco Soup or Taco Soup’s close relative of Chicken Enchilada Soup. If you don’t have enough chicken to make the chicken enchilada soup, use what you have and throw in a can of black beans to help make up the difference.
I hope you have a great week. Food and Family are two of my favorite things!
Oh and if you need something to do with your leftover turkey, try this one: Ro-Tel Chicken or Turkey
