    Being sick the last week; my menu is a total mess. I also had to give some of my catering away, as I didn't want to cook while being sick.

    I hope everyone had a fantastic Turkey Day. Mine was a day later, but it was still good. I'm going lighter and easier this week as well. The next few weeks are crazy, so nights may get switched up quite a bit.

    We smoked our bird, beer butt style, so I intentionally had a small one - 10 pounds. But so sad there is practically no turkey leftovers icon_sad.gif

    Hello,

    Hope you are feeling better, SC; not a great time to be sick, but no time ever is! I am envious of your lettuce!

    Here is the plan.

    Sat – sauce brick (spaghetti sauce that I make in huge batches and freeze in dinner-sized portions) with broccoli and salad

    Sun – Family Thanksgiving. I am bringing pumpkin pie. We will have turkey from the big green egg at SIL’s. Otherwise I’m never that into TG turkey, but the moist smoky goodness of meat out of the egg is an entirely different story! I am also doing veggie sides: a roasted beet dish ( http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Beet-Carpaccio-107340 ) that I will actually put on a platter rather than plate, and layer the beets with the onion stuff rather than put all the yummy onion stuff on the plate where we wouldn’t be able to enjoy it all; and a roasted green bean dish ( http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/roasted_green_beans_with_onions_and_walnuts/ ) but I am using shallots rather than onions and I also roasted a whole head of garlic when I did the beets, which I will add at the end. We like garlic!

    Mon –Grilled Salmon With Lime Butter Sauce (might just broil) with broccoli or other veg and grits

    Tue –burgers with veg and polenta fries from leftover grits

    Wed – Moroccan Style Split Pea Soup with bread

    Thu – Pumpkin Posole with tortillas (will keep it on the dry side so that it will work)

    Fri – leftovers or clammy pasta

    I hope I actiually make it all!

    The fish was pretty good - considering this is a microwave meal and done in under 15 minutes - this was a fast and easy supper - and low fat and healthy besides. What more can you want?

    Wow...some great looking meals this week. SC hope you're feeling better. Me...just crazed as usual. BUT big changes coming up. After being a SAHM for 13+ years I am returning to the workforce full time so my menu planning is going to have to take a turn for the pre-prepared. DH and I are planning a cooking session this Sunday to feed the freezer. For this week, though.

    Yesterday: Smoked sausage, cornbread from a box and carrots and ranch.

    Today: Spanikopita and crudite. When tomatoes aren't in season, coming up with a side for Spanikopita is always a tough one for me..Any ideas out there?

    Wednesday: Refried Bean Chili, tortilla chips and a green salad.

    Thursday: Re-trying a dump chicken recipe using cranberry sauce, BBQ sauce, onions and chicken which you serve over rice. If the family likes it we will make up a couple dinners worth this weekend to put in the freezer.

    Friday: As usual, take 'n' bake.

    Saturday: Still working the weekend job, so I'll be busy 6 out of 7 from this point on!

    Sunday: Going to try and feed the freezer with meatballs, gravy, taco meat, green chili chicken, maybe cranberry-BBQ chicken, grilled chicken chopped and sliced.

    Have a great week everyone!
