Menu Plan Monday: November 23

For those new to the Kitchen, I link recipes that are linkable in my Monday post, but always post the recipe the day it is made and when I can, post a picture as well as my review of it in the comments.  So if you are intrigued by a dinner, come on back to see what we thought!

Also, not every day is a new recipe.  On days where I’m cooking something we already know and love, I try to link to the original post so that you can still try it, but I pose a Question of the Day that I would love feedback on.  On days where we are doing Fend For Yourself (FFY) Buffet, I post something that I “covet” for your review and commentary.

Last week was good through Wednesday, then  things started getting hairy. My daughter’s first birthday on Saturday kind of took over the whole household. We FFY’d it one night and yes, takeout (gasp) the other night.  However, we recovered Sunday and then the stuffed zucchini (which was the only meal that didn’t get made last week) will be a meal this week.
This week on the Kitchen table…

Monday – stuffed zucchini
Tuesday – spaghetti & meatballs
Wednesday – maple dijon pork tenderloin (repeat recipe)
Thursday – Happy Thanksgiving!!!  I will be up at 3am to stuff the 24 lb. turkey and get it into the oven.  We’ll have stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, butternut squash, pearl onions…not to mention desserts (none of which will be made by me, thank goodness. I have my hands full with the main meal)!
Friday – the most obvious FFY Buffet day of the year, I think!
Saturday –crunchy parmesan chicken tenders (repeat recipe)
Sunday – easy beef stroganoff (repeat recipe… five ingredients, AND it’s in the crockpot, are you kidding me? It doesn’t get easier than that.)
