Weekly Menu 11/10 - 11/14


While it shortens the amount of "official" shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I am so glad that Thanksgiving is at the end of the month this year. I have 18 people coming over (and I'll share the menu with you soon) and I feel like I need the extra week to prepare.

Last night I had some friends over for a small party. They were my guinea pigs taste testers for some recipes I had planned for the holidays. In the end, they only ended up tasting two of the three recipes. One turned out perfectly, which I'll share with you tomorrow (SPOILER: it's full of bacon and cheese), one turned out tasty but hideous and the third was just a complete flop, but only because I had too many things in the oven at once.

Oh, but more importantly than anything else, you should really head over to your neighborhood Target and score some of this.

Seriously! I don't even like milk and this is probably one of the best tasting things I've had in a long time. They also have a chocolate mint variety which I need to pick up ASAP and try out. Oh and if you're wondering what to do with a flavored milk, such as snickerdoodle, I can suggest dipping cookies into it (YUM!), mixing it with caramel vodka for a sweet adult beverage, or mixing some whipped cream vodka into it for something that tastes like Christmas and winter and sugar cookies.

So, what am I cooking this week?

Sunday - baked ziti (double batch for my lunch)

Monday - crock pot hoisin beef stew over rice

Tuesday - jalapeno popper chicken chili 

Wednesday - grilled cheese and tomato soup 

Thursday - crock pot general Tso's chicken over rice 

I have a super unhealthy muffin recipe for breakfast this week - graham cracker chocolate chip. Doesn't that sound heavenly?

Since I did so much cooking for the party, I'm not making anything other than my 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats recipe this week. Check back on Wednesday to see what that is!
