Lighten up for the week ahead
The end of a holiday week can be exhausting! After all the visiting, eating and maybe even shopping draws to an end (or at least until the next holiday), you and the family are probably exhausted -- and full! Soba noodle stir-fry for Sunday dinner is a quick meal that's a lighter change of pace from Thanksgiving food, and starts you off right for the week ahead!
After all the heavy-duty food and desserts over a holiday weekend, you're probably ready for something lighter for dinner. Soba noodle stir-fry is delicious and includes tons of vegetables. This is a fun and tasty dish to serve at the end of a fun-filled holiday week.
A Sunday spruce-up!
Even though you've spent the last several days with family over the holiday weekend, this is a great time to get some outdoor yard work done before the weather really starts to turn. Besides, after eating lots and lots of delicious food over Thanksgiving, you could probably use some exercise outdoors.
If you hang holiday lights, involve the whole family in helping out. From creative director to assisting in holding the strings of lights as they're hung, there's something everyone can do.
Rake up all the fallen leaves in the yard. This is a great time to enlist the family in getting the fallen leaves up before the snowy season (or just to tidy up)! Don't forget to have a little fun jumping in a pile once or twice! This is also great exercise -- raking leaves can burn 290 calories an hour! If you get through your yard quickly, offer to help an elderly neighbor with his yard, too.
Get twiggy with it! Don't forget to trim and prune the bushes and trees that are now dormant. It will help get them ready for the spring season. Leave the pruning and trimming to the adults, and enlist the help of kids to gather up the trimmings.
