Thanksgiving is almost here you guys! I’m lucky enough to only have to work today and tomorrow this week.
Today’s Menu Monday is all about what I’ll be making on Wednesday and Thursday.
First up, the turkey: I’ll be making a traditional turkey with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. I’ll stuff the cavity not with stuffing, but with onions, celery and lemon.
Then, the sides: my mother’s baked mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes (and probably a quick gravy from the turkey drippings), sweet potato risotto, sauteed green beans, and homemade Sister Schubert rolls.
Finally, dessert: Pumpkin pie! Libby’s recipe, of course.
I have also promised my husband two fresh loaves of homemade bread for leftover turkey sandwiches.
A lot of food for three people, but I’m excited about it!
