Menu Planning: A Thanksgiving Week

HAG Menu PlanIt is Thanksgiving week, my friends! It is honestly one of my favorite holidays because it about my favorite things: food and family.

While I can’t always share it with all the family that I’d like to, I still get to share the dedicated time and love with my people. I am so lucky…and cannot complain. No I cannot.

So, I have a slight obsession with the vibrant color and tart taste of cranberries. It seems to be all that I want to make or look at on Pinterest.  Here are the top 3 little things that I want to make:

Bake Brie Bites from A Spicy Perspective

And this:

Cranberry Salsa from Secrets of a Modern Mama

And because I am slightly cranberry obsessed, I want to make this infused simple syrup in order to make these:

Easy Thanksgiving Cocktails from Crazy Organized

Don’t these recipes look festive?! I am so excited to start working on these this week!

For the big-day, I only get to bring, an appetizer. That is it. For someone that likes to cook, and that has to feed picky eaters, that is a problem. So I am planning to make my Chocolate Cream Pie for the kids, and trying my hand at rolls. Always tricky for someone who can’t for the life of me get the yeast to proof- So I will try.

The rest of the week as far as dinner is:

November 22- 29

For the first 3 days before Thanksgiving, I am doing smoothies, kale salads, and grilled chicken on salads for my lunches and the kids are all set with their snack-fest and sandwiches.

I wish you a wonderful week, and let me know if you make anything wonderful!


By the way, you HAVE to try to win this Aqua Spray Mop from e-Cloth…
I have been using mine and it is awesome!
