Holiday Meal Plan

This Thanksgiving I decided to do something a little different with our Thanksgiving menu. Im being super pickey with my choices of dishes to prepare. Only those I swear that I  absolutely love will make the cut.

Because I don’t consider myself a Chef in the kitchen I was a little intimidated by some of the recipes I saw. But after running across

Divas Can Cook

Caribbean Pot

Chef Bourque

PhillyboyJayCooKiNgShow1

Laura in the Kitchen

I realized that I am visual learner 100% . These videos make things so much easier for me. Reading recipes out of a book does not inspire me, but watching these videos really make me want to cook something.

When I eat something I love….I then go find a video & actually make the recipe myself. If it turns out well & my family loves it…. I add it to my Thanksgiving Meal Video List. Then in the Month of November I look over the list to ensure this is everything I want to make & I order ingredients from Amazon Fresh & everything is delivered straight to my door. Talk about easy.

So if you’ve been  wanting to try something a little different for Thanksgiving,  I recommend  you try this simple meal plan.

  1. No long lines in the Grocery Store
  2. Not wondering if you forgot anything
  3. No lugging bags home

You won’t regret you did!

Metro Shelving with Casters

So I recently organized a Garage and a Butlers Pantry with this XL Metro Shelving (60″ wide by 24″ deep by 72″ tall).  It’s so versatile it can go in any space. The love the durability of the shelf as well as the smooth locking casters make moving these items a breeze.

Note: Weight capacity on wheels (evenly distributed): 160 lbs. per shelf/Weight capacity on feet levelers: 800 lbs. per shelf

This Metro shelving can be purchased anywhere but this paticular shelving unit is way larger than any of the ones you would buy at Home Depot or Lowes.  These are more so for Commercial Kitchens or Warehouse Storage spaces.

For an additional cost Heavy duty Liners can be purchased for the wire shelves if needed. Having organized shelving 0n Casters really changes the game of organization. I also know that The Container Store Large Jumbo Boxes fit perfect on these shelves.

My favorite Tote Boxes are from the Container Store. I used Ladies, Mens & Jumbo Clear boxes to store all the belongings.
