Menu Plan Monday for November 20

The start of a new week again! Where does the time go? Again this week I am dealing with leftovers, and menus that didn't get used for one reason or another. One night we got panini sandwiches from the supermarket deli; another night I made a main-dish pasta salad because the day had been unseasonably warm. So I hope these repeat menus aren't too boring. Here goes:

MONDAY: Meatball Stew (leftover from Sunday); Colcannon (made from leftover mashed potatoes); Apple Salad

TUESDAY: Vegetable Shrimp Toss, Ciabatta Bread

WEDNESDAY: Basque Soup, Cornbread

THURSDAY: Thanksgiving! Turkey/Stuffing/Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli Casserole, Creamed Onions, Cranberry Sauce, Rolls, Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Pumpkin Dessert (Not all of this food is being made by me, thankfully!)

FRIDAY: Thanksgiving leftovers

SATURDAY: Veggie Calzones, Spinach-Broccoli Soup

SUNDAY: Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup, Seven-Grain Bread

  5. Hi Laura, Gail, Patty and Angie!

    Thanks for your nice comments and your kind Thanksgiving wishes!

    God bless,

  6. Wow, that all looks so good! The shrimp toss sounds good, as do the soups and all the great sounding breads. Do you make your own bread? :) And yum, veggie calzones sound delish right about now!

    Have a great day and a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

  7. Happy Stuffing Day.

    PS I love your autumn leaves picture. I haven't seen leaves like that since our days of living in Maine.

  8. Stacy --

    I do bake quite a bit of my own bread and rolls. I like to do the dough in the bread machine and then do the shaping, second rise, then bake the bread in the oven. I've been very pleased with how it comes out this way. The ciabatta bread, however, is actually ciabatta rolls that I buy at Walmart. They are like mini loaves, I believe there are 6 in a package for $2. I slice each one into 4 portions for serving, so a package lasts us for several meals.

    Rona -- Happy Thanksgivng to you as well! Am glad you enjoyed the fall leaves picture. It is such a glorious season here in New England.

    God bless,
