WELCOME to another weekly menu plan. I love posting these for you all every Saturday. It reminds me of all the stuff on my blog that I have not made in awhile. This week’s menu plan is a bit different because we have Thanksgiving this week. So, I have included the usual 5 dinners + 1 dessert recipe AND I have included a couple of my tried & true, family favorite, “must have side dishes” at our own Thanksgiving table.

I seriously cannot believe that this next week is Thanksgiving! How did that creep up on me so fast?! I am planning my menu this weekend and I already know a few things that have to be on our table : 

{no mushrooms, no creamed soup} Creamy Cheesy Green Bean Casserole

Look no further for the best creamy cheesy green bean casserole! Only a few simple ingredients, canned green beans, and a few minutes prep is all you need for the best green bean casserole. No creamed soup and no mushrooms. This recipe is a must have side dish for Thanksgiving dinner | www.togetherasfamily.com #greenbeancasserole #sidedish #thanksgivingdinner #thanksgiving #casserole #greenbeans

If you’re not a fan of mushrooms and/or canned creamed soups then you must try this casserole for Thanksgiving. We love it so much that I make it year round as a side dish to dinner!

Cranberry Fluff

I realize this cranberry fluff does not look like much but I promise it is so good. It’s by far the side dish that I look forward to the most at Holiday dinners; I make it for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter every single year.

If you are also looking for really good, tried-and-true Thanksgiving pie recipe then CLICK HERE for my collection of all the pie recipes that would be perfect!

French bread pizza is topped with jazzed up jarred pizza sauce, pepperoni, and lots of cheese. It's a 30 minute dinner that's perfect for a busy weeknight meal.

FRENCH BREAD PIZZA

An easy, simple 30 minute dinner that kids (and adults) will love. Crispy & crunchy bread with pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.

BBQ chicken soup that tastes just like the pizza! Flavorful base of chicken broth and BBQ sauce, loaded with garlic, shredded chicken, roasted corn, and spices. This is a quick & simple dinner and the perfect way to use leftover shredded chicken or BBQ chicken.

BBQ CHICKEN SOUP

A delicious twist to traditional chicken soup. Use leftover chicken for this easy recipe. BBQ sauce is in the soup and it adds such a great flavor to the soup. 

Switch up traditional lasagna dinner and make this cheesy lasagna casserole. Full of tender shell pasta, convenient canned spaghetti sauce, and a creamy and cheesy filling. This is the best comfort food recipe and something the entire family can agree on!

CHEESY LASAGNA CASSEROLE

Forget cooking several layers for lasagna. No need with this easy lasagna casserole. Cheesy, gooey, and loaded with beef, tender pasta, and seasonings. Serve with a side salad for a great home cooked meal. 

This easy chicken burrito skillet cooks in one pan on the stove top. Your favorite burrito ingredients are cooked up in one skillet pan. Tender chunked chicken, cheese, rice, beans, and seasonings simmer and cook to perfection in 30 minutes!

CHICKEN BURRITO SKILLET

One of our favorite dinner recipes on the blog. Cooks in one skillet pan and is done in 30 minutes. Top with all your favorite taco toppings for a healthy and yummy dinner. 

Ditch the canned spaghetti sauce for this flavorful, beefy, homemade spaghetti meat sauce. Only takes a few minutes  to prepare and then let it simmer for amazing flavor. Serve over pasta noodles with some garlic bread for a delicious dinner that will please everyone.

HOMEMADE SPAGHETTI MEAT SAUCE

You won’t even buy jarred spaghetti sauce after trying my homemade spaghetti meat sauce. So good, so flavorful, and a family favorite when served with crusty garlic bread and a side salad. 

Chocolate chip banana yogurt snack bars are so soft and loaded with chocolate and banana flavor! An easy treat that even the kids can help make. They have an added boost of Greek yogurt and white whole wheat flour for a healthier treat. Kids love having these for a snack!

CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA YOGURT SNACK BARS

Put those old bananas to good use and make these soft and delicious banana yogurt snack bars that are loaded with chocolate chips.
