Weekly Menu 11/24 - 11/29


Well it appears, at least from the Facebook front, that my post Friday with holiday tips and my menu was well received. I think I'll try to make it a tradition to give you this type of information in advance of all the holidays I host.

I still can't believe Thanksgiving is this week. On one hand, I'm more than ready for it because its later in the month than ever, but on the other hand, I want to push it back a few more weeks because I'm not ready for the chaos that ensues after Thanksgiving and runs straight on through to New Years.

While the menu may not appear that way, I'm keeping it relatively simple in the days leading up to Thanksgiving.

Sunday - cider glazed chicken, wild mushroom orzo, roasted green beans 

Monday - cheese souffle, bacon 

Tuesday - beef stew biscuits

Wednesday - sloppy joes and fries 

Thursday - the day of the turkey 

Friday - leftovers, hopefully enough to do a turkey version of shepherd's pie or maybe a pot pie 

I decided to indulge a bit on breakfast this week since I'm sure all of the Thanksgiving cleaning and cooking will burn off a few calories. (I hope!) Breakfast will be a cinnamon crunch brioche bread and to balance that, a lighter lunch of roasted tomato and mozzarella salad.

Although I'm not going to need any more desserts, there is a cupcake recipe I've been eyeing for a while now. I think I'll halve the recipe and have Tom take it into work to share. Everyone likes a pre-holiday treat of the sugary variety, right?
