Weekly Menu Plan – Thanksgiving Week

Can you believe it is Thanksgiving already?  Where did this year go?  Short week for the kids…no school Weds – Fri.  Little do they know that they are hopefully getting their H1N1 vaccines on Wednesday.  That will make them really, really happy.  ;) 

We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner again this year.  I love to host.  I love to roast the turkey and make all the trimmings to go along with it.  If you are unsure about which turkeys are gluten-free, please check out my Examiner post for more info.  Also, Butterball’s gravy packet is now gluten-free!  How exciting!  Here is my menu plan for turkey day:

My favorite is the cornbread stuffing and the pumpkin pie.  I love my Grandmother’s pumpkin pie recipe!  It is the best!

Here is the rest of the plan:

Sunday- Rotisserie Chicken, Roasted Klondike Potatoes (white, red & purple), steamed green beans & salad

Monday – Thai Chile Salmon, Brown Rice Couscous, Roasted Asparagus & Salad

Tuesday- Spaghetti, roasted veggies & salad

Wednesday – Burgers, sweet potato fries & salad

Thursday – Feast

Friday – Leftovers or Nachos & salad

Saturday – Leftovers or breakfast for dinner

Baked Goods

Bread

Pumpkin Pie

Cornbread

 

Cheryl at Gluten-free Goodness is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap.  The theme is Thanksgiving favorites.  I listed my favorites above….pumpkin pie & the cornbread stuffing (which is technically dressing, because it doesn’t go inside the turkey).  Thanks for hosting, Cheryl!

 

I hope you all have a safe & happy Thanksgiving.  Please check out Orgjunkie for lots more menu ideas.
