[an abbreviated] Meal Plan: November 19-25

When I say abbreviated, I mean it. We'll be traveling to my parent's house on Wednesday, and returning on Saturday, so I don't have to cook for most of the week. I'm ready for a little break from my little kitchen. We get along well, most of the time, but sometimes I need a couple days off. :) I will enjoy lending a hand in my mom's kitchen on Thanksgiving, though!
