Weekly Menu 11/25 - 11/29


If you're reading this I assume you've woken up from your turkey and stuffing induced coma and didn't get trampled by anyone out to find the cheapest television. :)

Wednesday after work, I got what I thought was a huge start on all of the Thanksgiving foods. I peeled the potatoes for mashed potatoes, made the green bean casserole, the mac and cheese, and caramelized onion dip and made the pumpkin garlic knots. I decided to take the pumpkin cranberry wreath off the menu since there would only be 7 of us.

Yet somehow Thursday morning I was rushing around like a crazy person trying to get everything else finished. I ended up cutting the cheddar bacon biscuits from the plan as well. Aside from a minor mishap with the pumpkin cannoli and accidentally preheating the oven with the pumpkin knots inside, everything else went pretty smoothly.

The caramelized onion dip was the biggest hit of the appetizers and the pear-honey cranberry sauce was the best side dish. The spiked apple crisp shooters were delicious, but I give first place of desserts to my mom's turtle cheesecake even though more than three bites and your teeth started to ache from all of the sugar.

I hope to share some of the recipes from Thanksgiving starting next week! But as for this week, here's what I have on the menu:

Sunday - turkey pot pie

Monday - Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches, salad

Tuesday - Shrimp Tacos

Wednesday - Drunken Rosemary Chicken over Rice with Corn

Thursday - Pumpkin and Sausage penne

For breakfast this week, I'm debating between prosciutto egg cups or cranberry apple bread. Lunch will be minestrone soup in the crock pot.
