It's THANKSGIVING WEEK!!! And, this year, Frog Prince and I are just celebrating Thanksgiving the two of us. While we will miss seeing our families, it's going to be quite fun to establish our own traditions for our family. We're looking forward to a few days off of work and school too - in hopes that we can relax and do some fun things as a family.
Last week was a rough one... recovering from our wonderful early holiday travels to the Frozen Tundra, and trying to get lots of work done translated into minimal cooking in our kitchen.
Frog Prince went out for lunch one day with work, and had enough leftover for 2 more Frog Prince-sized meals... so he ate those up. And, when you already don't feel much like cooking, cooking for one is not motivation enough.
Last week felt kind of reminiscent of my cooking during my early college years... so this week, I hope we'll be back on track.
We did end up enjoying:
Mom's Homemade Turkey Noodle Soup (from mom!!)
The last of the Whole Wheat Molasses Crinkles
Cheesy Open BBQ Sandwiches
(using leftover pork from the freezer)
Crustless Apple Pie
Nut-Free Chex Mix
Now, onto the menu for this week:
Dried Fruit (cherries, cranberries, raisins, apples and pineapple)Yogurt
No-Nut Trail Mix
Su - Crockpot Wild Rice Soup, Wheat Quick Bread
M - Penne with Broccoli and Italian Sausage
Tu - Grilled Cheese Sandwiches on wheat oat bread, broccoli
W - Leftovers
Th - THANKSGIVING!
- Turkey (hopefully made in the crockpot!)
- Lucy's Dinner Rolls (new)
- Wild Rice Stuffing
- Crockpot Squash (new)
- Sweet Potato Pie
- Or... maybe we'll make Apple Honey Pie
S - Hot Turkey Sandwiches (dinner rolls with turkey and gravy)
And, because I must... I present two of my new favorite Thanksgiving recipes:
Meet, Sweet Potato Pie, with molasses crinkle crust!
And, Sweet Potato Corn Bread.
Wishing you all a very wonderful Thanksgiving!
