Menu Plan Monday ~ Oct 20th
Well hello there! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. It’s another week and another menu. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
As you know last week here in Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving. I hosted dinner for 11 people and we had such a wonderful time. Dinner was an hour late because the darn turkey bird was taking it’s sweet time cooking but other than that small moment of panic it all came together nicely in the end.
I tried a new vegetable recipe this year and was it ever good. Whenever I host a dinner I like to prepare as much of the dinner as possible in advance. I have a small oven and once you get the turkey in there you don’t get anything else. The day before I made up my stuffing, veggie casserole and dessert. The morning of the party I put my stuffing in the crockpot and baked both the vegetable casserole and homemade buns before putting the turkey in. The dough for the bun recipe is done in the bread machine and it is really wonderful. Later while we were carving up the turkey and right before we ate I just had to heat the two things up in the oven. Easy and absolutely delicious!
