This is a very long post filled with pictures, a menu and a little bit of silliness. If you can hang with me until the end, you will be rewarded with a giveaway. :)
For our Thanksgiving meal this week, I will be feeding just the six of us with the possiblility of a couple of extras. However, that evening we’re feeding 20 members of the York College men’s basketball team since they have games all weekend and are unable to go home. SO, I spent the weekend cooking and baking and getting ready Thanksgiving Day!
My turkey is cooked and being deboned by my husband right this very minute.
Wow, did the red button pop up or did the red button pop up?
Yes, I believe the turkey is done.
My rolls are baked and in the freezer.
Ain’t they purty?
I have no idea what happened to that one.
Or that one.
(Hey, someone had to be on quality control duty.)
Here are the rolls (before quality control moved in), pumpkin pie and a big pot of
hamburger meat (which is for the b-ball team dinner).
Thank you for humoring me and looking at the fruit of my labor this weekend. Now here is my menu for the week:
Thursday, November 26
Caramel apple dip with apple slices
Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamy green bean casserole, homemade dinner rolls, pumpkin pie, Donna’s Oh My Stars Cookie Bars (I’ve been waiting for a special occasion to try these!!)
Taco Salad, fruit tray, butterscotch brownies, Lynn’s no bake cookie bars (The YC b-ball team will be fed a traditional T-giving meal at noon. I figured they’d like something besides turkey for their evening meal!)
Friday, November 27
Scrambled eggs, oranges
Turkey sandwiches on rolls, mashed potato pancakes, fruit
Leftover taco salad stuff
This is the last week of the November Gratitude Challenge! I know this is a busy week for many of us…but please take the time to reflect on what God is doing in your life and join us for Gratituesday! Remember, there are prize drawings for those who participate in the November Gratitude Challenge!
Be sure to sign up for this Children’s Book giveaway if you haven’t already!
And now for this new 48 hour giveaway!
Because this weekend I used so many of the methods in Heavenly Homemaker’s Guide to Holiday Hospitality ebook…and because using these methods and recipes have been SO HELPFUL to me and will make Thursday (and this whole week) SO much simpler for me…I wanted to spread the organizational fun. Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered into a drawing to win this ebook.
And also…I’m going to let you in on a little secret (just in case you’re going to be NOT reading blogs this weekend). There may be a little Black Friday love going on in the Heavenly Homemaker’s shop this weekend. Be sure to watch for it!
