Menu Plan and Goals

Okay, how can Thanksgiving possibly be next week? It’s crazy. The fact that the weather the past few days has been in the 60s and 70s probably doesn’t help me having a hard time wrapping my brain around it. Not complaining though. I’ll take any days I can of being able to sit out in the backyard holding the baby while watching my very active daughter burn off some energy.

Menu Plan and Goals

I made a from scratch version of one of my family’s favorite desserts growing up, Mississippi Mud Pie. It was oh so good but I need to tweak the pudding a touch before I post the recipe. Let’s just say it didn’t set up quite enough to hold its shape.

Menu Plan and Goal


  • Oatmeal
  • Smoothies
  • Pancakes


  • Pizza
  • Apple Pancakes (recipe coming Friday)
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Salad


  • Taco night at a friends’ house
  • Chicken Gravy over potatoes (was going for chicken ala king type of dish using biscuits, but then potatoes were on sale and easier to bake than biscuits so I decided to do it that way) Scratch that. Friends invited us over.
  • Pizza
  • Salads


  • Bananas, apples, grapes
  • Muffins

      It is super good! We had it on a family vacation when I was young and it became a yearly birthday dessert for many of my siblings. Shortbread type crust, cream cheese and whipped cream layer, pudding layer, topped with whipped cream! Yum!

      Thanks! The goals help me a lot. I probably should get more focused with them and break them down like Monday Saving Mom does, but this works in the meantime. 🙂 Oh my goodness, it is soooo good! I’m going to try making it again this weekend.
