I really got my act together this week.  I made one stop and the farm stand on Monday for the turkey and a handful of other items.  Then, I went to Wegman’s on the Saturday after Thanksgiving which should largely take care of this upcoming week.  The items on the left – fish, swiss chard, and tomatoes – are for Monday’s dinner.  The rest are for Thanksgiving.


Given this, what did we have for Thanksgiving?  Well, I made:

  • Herb rubbed turkey
  • Apple cider glazed turkey
  • Oyster stuffing
  • Brown butter Brussels Sprouts
  • Steamed green beans
  • Boiled onions
  • Tossed salad

Others brought desserts and additional sides.  Generally, this menu went over well and the leftovers were enjoyed as well.

After Thanksgiving, I went to Wegman’s.  The primary purpose of this trip was milk.  But, I rounded out some items we were low on at home and added a few things to get through this week.  The shallots and tenderloins will be adult dinner on Tuesday (Kindergarten math night means we’ll eat separately).  The limes and Tabasco are for a white chili on Monday night to polish off the turkey.
