Thanksgiving week menus

I'm still working out the details of Thursday, but here's what I'm doing this week:

Sunday (today)
2 oven stuffer roasters
"Party" rice
creamed spinach

mandarin oranges
Pullman bread
Cottage Cheese pie

Christmas fish (I'll tell you about it soon)
Christmas rice
Acorn squash
French bread
Chocolate Buttermilk cake

Penne with tomatoes and parsley
green beans almondine
Family Pleaser light bread
Brownie Tuesdays


Roast Beef
Rock Potatoes
Yellow or white cake

Find whatever you can (or, as Al Penwasser calls it, "Refrigerator Hunt"). I'll put it on the counter, reheated if necessary; good luck to all.

The last night all of the college kids will be home. I will muster all of my strength and think up something outstanding. I'll also have to bake each of them a loaf of cranberry or banana bread to take back to school. They'll be really eager to return in 2 or 3 weeks!

And, what post is complete without a picture of Thor and some of his college people?

I'd love to be dining at your home this week, and helping in the kitchen. I'll bet Thor is a happy dog.

Hey - has Jeff has all his hair cut off?

I get all exhausted by just reading about it... your kids are certainly blessed to have such a creative and energetic mom!

Cottage cheese pie? Because I really do love my husband, I have to ask... what is it?

Love the very happy dog photo. Thor seems to be a bit like Mugsy, in that he'd like all of those he adores to just stay within his sight always.
