Dinner Menu for Thanksgiving Week

skillet corn bread from last week's menu...yum!

Looking over our schedule, this week is a fairly quiet one for us.  No piano lesson or awana for Daughter, and no appointments or other obligations are on our calendar.  We do not travel for Thanksgiving, and no one comes here, so it will be the three of us together at home for a quiet, low-key celebration.

I am hoping to spend the week getting ready for Christmas - finishing Christmas cards, making some gifts, etc.  I will likely start putting away some of the autumn decor - not everything, of course, just some of it.  I feel like I need a little space between all the harvest decorations and Christmas!  At any rate, here is the menu plan for dinners this week:

M - hamburgers, oven fries, carrots and celery w/ranch dip, fruit salad
T - cheese enchiladas, Mexican rice, steamed broccoli, leftover fruit salad
W - eggs to order, homemade turkey sausage, hash browns, toast, orange wedges
R - cranberry-pecan garden salad, fried Thanksgiving turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, glazed carrots, chocolate cream pie
F - leftovers
S - Chinese restaurant
S - to be determined (based on Thanksgiving leftovers)

I also plan to make some blueberry muffins and pop some popcorn.  I signed up to bring snacks for awana the week after Thanksgiving, so I will likely prepare some things in advance for that as well.

Do you have big Thanksgiving day plans?  Are you home or traveling?
What is on your menu?

  1. We will be at home. Our youngest daughter is coming for breakfast and our youngest son and his wife and in-laws are coming for the big dinner. Just six for the big meal. With five kiddos and all their in-laws we have to share everyone around. Two of ours live out of town and we are thankful that our farthest away with the Air Force have a cousin of our daughter in laws with in a 4 hour drive to go to.

    M-One pan Goulash, broccoli, salad, garlic bread
    T-Sausage and Cabbage Stew from the freezer, veggies and dip, cornbread (in a skillet, too, yummy)
    W-leftover goulash, yellow squash sauteed with onions, salad and garlic bread
    TR-turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and a corn dish brought by DIL and her Mom, sweet potato souffle, Waldorf salad, cranberry sauce, rolls, pecan, pumpkin and chocolate pies--I can taste it now!
    ST-pizza from out using the AmEx small business Saturday credit, veggies and dip
    SN-our week to greet so we will do free Hardee's burgers with the check in app points

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
