Menu Plan Monday: Nov 16-22

It’s late, but I’m still menu planning away!  I know I haven’t posted one of these lately, and I’ll be honest, there have been many many restaurant meals or paper bag dinners in the past month or two.  Tons of kid activities, among other things, have made it simply impossible to do anything except eat...

However, the recipe originated at The Morris Tribe, and even though that website appears to no longer be...
