Menu Plan - Nov. 8

A 60-degree weekend... it was lovely. We spent lots of time outside, hiking, laughing, crunching leaves beneath our feet and breathing in the fall weather. This was the first nice weekend since... September! And, we enjoyed it.

We even took a trip to the farmer's market, where we ordered ourselves a Thanksgiving turkey! Yes, that's right... I'm cooking a turkey this year. It will be the first time that Frog Prince and I are celebrating Thanksgiving just the two of us... and I'm looking forward to cooking.

Last week, we should have fired up the BBQ... oh, wait, we'd have to have one first :) Instead, we enjoyed:

(my hubby's new favorite)

(which was devoured at Life Group)

(a healthy twist on a familiar favorite)

Creamy Tortellini Bake
(recipe on Monday)

Red Pepper Quiche
(recipe on Tuesday)

This week, we're traveling to visit my family and we're celebrating an early Thanksgiving and really early Christmas with them, as we won't be back to visit until.... we don't know when. I'm looking forward to cooking with my family this week, so our meal plan is still a little up in the air at this point.

  1. Great menu plan you've got there!

    Quiche looks fab and I simply cannot wait to hear more about this sweet potato pie, which I have never had or made.


  2. Have so much fun with your family!

  3. oo we're going to try that roasted veggie parm and the veggie soup. We just watched Food, Inc and are now on a mission to find more meatless meals we like. These 2 look super yummy!

  4. Have a great time with your family!

  5. It looks like you have everything under control. Have a great time with your family.

  6. looks great. I bookmarked that shortbread, seems like it would be a great holiday party recipe!

  7. Hi Sara, some great recipes you have here! We'll have to try some of these. I'm really interested to know how your free-range turkey turns out and compares to a regular store-bought one. Please post an analysis after the big day!
    Take care,
    Emily Morrison

  8. The shortbread recipe is so yummy looking...can't wait to try!
