With Thanksgiving falling during this week my meal planning was a bit lighter than usual. Add that to a shortened work week for all of us and where no leftovers were needed for lunches meant a small break for me come dinner time. Although, I did still come up with some pretty yummy meals for the nights I did have to cook.
Here are the dinners we enjoyed this week.
Saturday: butternut squash with bacon and egg centers (My new favorite meal)
Sunday: General Tso’s chicken and broccoli over rice (take out made at home)
Monday: veggie marinara over cheese tortellini (meatless)
Tuesday: Korean BBQ pork over farrow with homemade creamy coleslaw
Wednesday: quinoa sweet potato chili (meatless) (recipe coming soon)
Thursday: Thanksgiving dinner
Friday: left overs-stuffed squash with turkey,stuffing, and sprouts then covered with melted parmesan cheese.
That sums up this past week in meals. As for the upcoming weeks ahead, I am excited to begin planning my Christmas menus. I am thinking about trying a goat cheese log with apricot preserves drizzled on top with some crusty bread or crackers on the side. I am also trying to come up with a yummy appetizer that is made using wonton wrappers since these have become a new family favorite.
Do you do traditional ham for Christmas?
What are your family traditions….if you care to share them?
