This week’s menu plan features a few ideas for using thanksgiving leftovers, with a couple of ideas for looking forward to the season ahead. There are so many tasty recipes to choose from this week. My fellow Dinner Divas did not disappoint.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is already over? I hope you’re enjoying the leftovers as much as we are. Turkey sandwiches for days means a temporary reprieve from cooking dinner. What are some of your favorite recipes to make with leftovers? For me, it’s soup. Every year. I make a big batch of stock and load up the freezer. Make sure you are subscribed so you don’t miss a single recipe!
Here’s how it works: Every Friday morning, a new menu plan will be delivered to your email. It consists of 5 dinner options, plus 2 extras. Those two extras could be side dishes, dessert, drinks, etc. The Dinner Divas weekly menu plan features (mostly) healthy, seasonal foods that don’t take all day to prepare. Getting the weekly menu delivered to your inbox on Friday morning gives you the chance to make your shopping list and get organized for the week ahead. I’d love to hear from you & see your creations!

Menu Plan 84
The first recipe on the menu plan this week is a delicious Sweet Potato Veggie Cake from Pook’s Pantry. These sweet potato cakes are made from grated sweet potatoes, which makes them easy to pick up. They are also great for breakfast with a fried egg on top.
Next up is Turkey Biscuit Casserole from Comfortably Domestic. This is a fantastic way to use Thanksgiving leftovers. Just look at those fluffy layers of biscuits, I want to scoop one out and devour it.
Pastry Chef Online has a delicious Thanksgiving Shepherd’s Pie with Stuffing Crust. This is absolutely genius. I am planning to make this in muffin cups for individual servings. Quick and easy lunches for the week!
The Speckled Palate made this beautiful Sweet Potato Bisque. This soup would be a lovely starter for a holiday meal or as a light dinner any day of the week. This bisque is silky, creamy and full of warm spices.
Finally, Jessica Gavin’s Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta is our last dinner. This is perfect fall comfort food. Pasta coated in a creamy, nutrient-rich butternut squash sauce is a delicious, hearty meal for cool fall or winter evenings.
This week, we have a Caramel Apple Pie from Comfortably Domestic. Nothing says fall like apple pie and adding caramel to it mimics the flavor of one of my favorite childhood treats – caramel apples.
The last recipe on the menu plan is Apple Chutney Bruschetta from Pook’s Pantry. Toasted bread topped with goat cheese and sweet and sour apple chutney make this appetizer the perfect fall nibble. It is quick, easy and full of flavor. A great bite for any gathering or even date night at home!
