  6. Looks yummy! I always struggle with lunch options, so I should definitely remember to plan those ahead too ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I made pot pie tonight. Our Church had Thanksgiving dinner. And they baged the left overs for those that wanted to take some home. So I made my favorite homemade pie crust. I boil broken pieces lasagne, peas & carrots, turkey gravy, turkey meat, and potatoes.So much for healthy eating before Thanksgiving Day.
