Dinner Menu - Week of Thanksgiving

I was sick for a while, and then I was puppy-dog tired for a while after that.  Thank you for your patience, I am feeling better now!  Here is our dinner menu for Thanksgiving week.

M - homemade lo mein with char siu pork, egg, green beans, bean sprouts, carrots, onion, cabbage and cilantro....sliced oranges

T - homemade breaded, oven-fried turkey nuggets with buffalo sauce, barbecue sauce or ranch dressing, baked potatoes, celery sticks, grapes

W - homemade tomato soup, bologna sandwiches on wheat with lettuce & tomato, pickles, sliced apples

Th - garden salad with sliced apple, cranberries, glazed pecans & apple cider dressing, roasted Cornish hens, stuffing, roasted potatoes, steamed broccoli, pumpkin pie with whipped cream

F - homemade ham & cheese calzones, garden salad w/vinaigrette dressing, apple slices

S - homemade cheese enchiladas, Mexican rice, frijoles, chopped lettuce/tomato/cilantro, sliced oranges

S - leftovers, or frozen pizza, veggie sticks, fruit salad

It looks like there is a lot of scratch-cooking this week, but most of the recipes are ones we have used for a while, so they are comfortable and easy for me to use.  What's on the menu this week for you?
