Monday Menu Plan

November 21, 2011

This is a big week for all foodies. Not only do we get to plan an extravagant meal that takes days of preparation, but we also have a few days off which means even more cooking for breakfasts, lunches and, of course, how to incorporate turkey leftovers. Below is what I have planned thus far:

weekly-calendar

Monday: Crockpot Saucy Italian Chicken (recipe courtesy of The Pajamas Chef)

Tuesday: Lunch for Dinner: Chicken Noodle Soup + Homemade Sammie

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: THANKSGIVING Menu

  • Specialty Cocktail: Champagne Punch
  • Appetizer: Cheese and Olive Plate
  • Entrée: Malt Beer Brined Turkey with Malt Glaze
  • Sides: Squash Casserole (thanks Mom!); Sage Sausage and Apple Dressing; Pimento Cheese Potatoes Gratin; Green Beans with Lemon and Garlic
  • Condiments: Homemade Gravy; Cranberry Relish
  • Dessert: TBD — I don’t “do” desserts, so will probably pick something up from the German Bakery

Friday: Leftovers, leftovers and more leftovers!

So what’s on your Thanksgiving Menu this week?

A Bloody Good Bloody

June 20, 2011

Today I returned home from a lovely vacay in Santa Rosa beach, FL where we attended a dear friend’s wedding.  We stayed at a cute beach house on 30-A and ventured a mere block down the street to Stinky’s Fish Camp for dinner Friday night.  Sunday morning we headed back (afterall, is was only half a block away) and after chatting with some locals ordered probably the best Bloody Mary I’ve had in a long time.  Not only was it chock full of tasty pickled veggies like green beans, okra and olives but also included a lemon and lime wedge, celery (of course!) and a perfectly cooked Gulf shrimp. 

When I open my dream restaurant on the beach, this Bloody will definitely be on the menu!

Best Bloody Eva
