Menu Plan, week of 12/14/14

Baby #4's arrival is imminent. In the meantime, we appear to continue to need to eat. Darn. Helps to have a plan, especially one from one blog site—in this case, damndelicious.net. Here goes!

Thanksgiving recipes (under construction!)

THE BIRD
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/good-eats-roast-turkey-recipe.html
Because 4,905 5-star reviews can't be all wrong

**timing
- thaw 2-3 days before
- brine overnight (Wednesday)
- cook time: 3-4 hours

THE STUFFING
http://www.number-2-pencil.com/2013/11/04/slow-cooker-stuffing/
Because I like the idea of putting a slow-cooker to use in this way, leaving other cooking surfaces available. Just sounds tasty too!

**timing
- guessing with all the chopping and sausage frying that it will take about an hour of prep
- cooks 4 hours on low in crock pot

GRAVY
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/best-gravy-ever-recipe.html

SIDES
- Classic mashed
- Chard salad (MarStewLiv)
- cranberries http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alexandra-guarnaschelli/cranberry-sauce-recipe.html
- mini-corn breads (optional)
- Steve/Sus: green bean casserole

APPETIZERS
veggies & cheese (mom: fruit)


Muhammara (via Aimee McKoy -- pita chip/hummus thing)

An Apple Snow White Would Fall For

Lovely apple I enjoyed as a meal en route back from LA this fall. That's my hand in the picture, which gives you a sense for how massive this thing was. Utterly delicious too.

Birthday weekend, 2013


I love the different themes the kids pick for their birthdays, and that they aren't the least swayed by what the other has chosen. Always guarantees a very different experience, even if we celebrate 2 days in a row!
