I just had the most wonderful week in Stony Brook with my mom. The weather was a 10/10 and I was also able to see my sisters and their families and my auntie. So special! I came home a day early because my husband’s 105-year-old Grandma Rose passed away while I was in NY. She was very dear to me and I wanted to be there for her memorial service on Friday. Many people in my community know her because I always post a picture with her on her birthday, and occasionally a video. She lived a long and beautiful life, but we will miss her.
Looking forward, I will be doing more Thanksgiving prep this week like freezing stock and pie crusts, and towards the end of the week, I’ll make cranberry sauce and applesauce! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Wednesday: brussels sprouts with turkey bacon and dates (good recipe for Thanksgiving, too!) served with cooked quinoa or cooked grain of choice
Friday: Sheet pan shrimp with broccoli p. 261 from QTQ , black rice or riced vegetable of your choice
Saturday brunch: swiss chard frittata
Sunday: Fesenjan-style Chicken Stew with Walnut and Pomegranate Sauce, any cooked grain or cauliflower rice, green salad with vinaigrette of choice
