Thanksgiving Week Menu

Sunday, November 21, 2010

 This autumn has been stressful here at our house, so I'm looking forward to a few days to "chill" at home this week...something we don't do very often.   I guess being in the mode for low stress, I'm not feeling the need to be very adventurous in the kitchen this week.  Mostly we'll be having some long-time family favorites with a good dose of some good old fashioned comfort food!  :)  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!   

Monday
--Sweet and Sour Chicken and Rice


Turkey Cupcakes (for a fun family night treat)


Tuesday--Vegetarian Potato Pasta (still perfecting)

Wednesday--leftovers  from Sunday

Thursday--Turkey (of course)  :)

Oatmeal Dinner Rolls (my favorite)

Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola and Walnuts (new) 

Garlic-Parmesan Roasted Potatoes  (made by my 10-year-old)

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce  (this picture does not do this yummy dessert justice!)

Apple Pie (with THE best pie crust)


Friday--Daddy's turn to cook (a post-Thanksgiving tradition)--Turkey and Gravy over Toast

Saturday--Chicken Pot Pie (made with leftover turkey)


Sunday-- Turkey Tacos (made with leftover turkey)

I'm liking Friday's plan - Daddy's Day to cook. I need to put that on the menu plan at my house - LOL!
Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday!
