Thanksgiving Countdown Plan!

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!
