Now that Thanksgiving is upon us, everyone is looking for that perfect turkey recipe. Β  The one that will have everyone going back for seconds and thirds until it’s time to crash on the couch and watch football..only to get up a few hours later to make a sandwich with the leftovers.

A dear friend recently shared the recipe her four-year-old son came up with in school when asked to scribe a turkey recipe for Thanksgiving.Β  Although, I do not recommend following these instructions for your Thanksgiving dinner, it is just too cute not to share!

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
  • EntrΓ©e: 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

So what’s on your Thanksgiving Menu this week?
