Holy buckets – I just made a menu plan that included Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!? Where did this year go? It’s almost criminal how fast time is flying. With as fast as time goes, I want to spend as little of it as possible worrying about meals. Planning meals? You betcha. But worrying about them usually means that I didn’t plan ahead.

So, if you’re like me and don’t want to worry, plan ahead and worry about something else! Try this monthly menu plan for November! Want some different meal ideas? Try more here!


What if I don’t cook every night?
Awesome! I don’t either – we often have leftovers 2-3 night/week. Just take this basic plan, cut out some meals and make leftovers part of your plan!

What if I don’t want a particular meal on a specific night?
Awesome! Just take this basic plan and swap meals around.

What if I want to see the Excel version?
Awesome! You can download it here.

What if I don’t eat beef? Or chicken? Or pork?
Awesome! Just take this basic plan, remove the foods you won’t eat and put in foods you will eat.

What if I don’t know how to make that meal?
Awesome! Included are the links for the recipe that I usually use.

What if we always have pizza on Friday nights?
Awesome! (Can I come over?) Just remove my Friday meals and put in pizza.

What if I want to plan for more than just dinner?
Awesome! Feel free to print this out, write out breakfast & lunch meals. Or you can edit it in Excel and make it your own!

What if I don’t like your recipe?
Awesome! Use which ever recipe you normally use and just use this basic plan as a suggestion.

What if I have my own monthly menu plan?
Awesome! Care to share it? Share it down below in the comments so that we all can see it and be inspired!

What’s cool about this menu plan?
I tried to have a variety of meals each week – some beef, some chicken, and some pastas. That way you won’t get too bored. There are also plenty of ways to save time when using this menu plan. Examples: When prepping chicken at the beginning of the month, make enough for the other recipes and freeze it for future use. When making ground beef, brown 2-3 times the normal amount and freeze that. It makes it super quick to pull meals together!

    We still don’t know what we’re doing for Thanksgiving, but I know it will be something, so I guess we’ll plan meals for the rest of the month and figure Thanksgiving out when we get there, lol. Thanks for linking up to the Sunshine Life Link Up!
