I know Halloween is on Monday, but THANKSGIVING is 4 weeks from this past Thursday!!! It’s game on, friends!! My newest Thanksgiving e-book is available and better than ever. It is basically a Thanksgiving manual with over 100 recipes, troubleshooting tips, prep ahead best practices and every piece of advice I have learned over the last 27 years of cooking Thanksgiving and teaching over 200 Thanksgiving classes. If there is something I have down pat, it’s Thanksgiving. Click here to learn more about the e-book and to order. It will save you hours and hours of searching for recipes and tips!! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday (Halloween): Turkey chili (to make this plant based: swap out turkey for an equal weight of cooked beans or cooked lentils) or check out this mushroom veggie chili + topping bar and cornbread. Other fun ideas you may like are the Bell Pepper Jack o’ Lanterns or Roasted Stuffed Fondue Pumpkin.
Friday: Middle Eastern Vegetable Soup with Freekeh from my KM cookbook, side of fresh salad (or if you have leftover cassoulet, chop everything into bite size pieces, add some stock and turn it into the best soup!)
Saturday brunch: Savory dutch baby pancake with spinach and gruyere, optional to sip with an energizing Pumpkin Spice Yerba Mate Latte
Here’s what you can do in advance if it helps you:
Make salad dressings, including Caesar dressing
Cook beans for the week if making from scratch
Measure spice mix for salmon
Make breadcrumb topping for cassoulet
