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.
