Menu Plan–Thanksgiving Week 2011

Crazy week begins today!  I started it out with a venti coffee from Starbuck’s, so I hope I can keep motoring on.  Tons to do, as always, but as I said in my newest post on today, focus on family & friends, not perfecting the impossible.

Last year I made the turkey and pies; this year my mom has generously taken that over & will be bringing them to our house.  The turkey is from a local farm – free range & organic.  This will be our first year straying from the “Butterball” or grocery store turkey.  I can’t wait to let you all know how it is!  She will also be bringing her homemade pumpkin pies made with fresh pumpkin.  I was able to sample the one she brought last month & thought I had died & gone to heaven.  Good thing I am starting out Thanksgiving with a 4 mile turkey trot!  Want to know the best thing about the race on Turkey day?  The finish line swag includes a bottle of wine!  Score!

Tuesday – Homemade burrito bowls and salad

Wednesday  – Burgers, sweet potato puffs, sugar snap peas & salad
