There is no weekly menu this week because it’s time to get ready for Turkey Day! I will be posting my Thanksgiving Countdown Plan along with pics and recipes rather than a menu this week. We are celebrating the holiday with a Feast Party on Tuesday with X-man’s class and then heading to sis-in-law’s for Thanksgiving Day.
For Feast Day, my contribution was mini stuffing muffins and turkey cookies. For Thanksgiving, my sis-in-law is baking a ham with all the traditional fixings including mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, and a veg casserole. For our contributions, we went a little more nontraditional with a deep-fried turkey (wish us luck!!!), cranberry-jalapeno relish, and butternut squash mac n cheese. I’m also making pastry-wrapped brie and a veg platter for appetizers.
Let the countdown begin!
Monday: Make Stuffing Muffins & Turkey Cookies.
Tuesday: Feast Day & Shopping Day! Make Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese.
Wednesday: Make Cranberry-Jalapeno Relish. Cut up vegs & make dip for platter. Wrap brie. Brine turkey.
Thursday: Bake brie & mac n cheese, assemble veg platter, prepare turkey for frying. Fry turkey at sis-in-law’s!
