ON THE MENU WEEK OF NOVEMBER 18TH

OTMM 11-18-17- HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK! I have delicious recipes just waiting for you to make. This week's menu features the best TURKEY you will ever make and my very favorite sugar cookies!

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!!! I hope you are with family and friends and those you love! StoneGable is a little crazy right now! For bloggers, not only is it Thanksgiving but probably the busiest Christmas decorating week as well. I’m putting the finishing touches on our outside decorating. But Thursday is all about Thanksgiving! May God bless your table, those around it and your day! Now, let’s see what’s on the menu this week…

I’m so excited about this episode of Decorating Tips And Tricks!!! Today we are talking about HOW TO DECORATE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE FROM TOP TO BOTTOM! We agree on most tree decorating procedures but some others we might have a bit of a controversy! Head over and listen to how the three of us decorate.

You can listen below here:


 

On with the menu…

SUNDAY

Once in a while, it’s so nice to have old fashioned comfort food! YUM! This reminds me of my mom’s meatloaf (sans the cheese) that I loved!!!!

MONDAY

Our local grocers had a sale on lump crab meat and I certainly took advantage of it! We love crab cakes with very little filler. I found a new-to-me foodie blog The Suburban Soapbox and I’m so looking forward to trying this recipe.

  • CRAB CAKES
  • BRAISED BRUSSEL SPROUTS
  • OVEN BAKED POTATO WEDGES

TUESDAY

I’m always on the lookout for great chicken recipes. Chicken can be fabulous or bland and I think it’s all about the spices and sauces! This recipe from Little Spice Jar has both. Oh, so delicious!

WEDNESDAY

We grill all year even though it can get a bit chilly or snowy sometimes. But you just can fake that grill flavor. We also love flank steak! It used to be so inexpensive before the masses discovered it! If you have not tried flank steak you should!!! It is a great cut of meat! Beautiful recipe… beautiful blog, Life’s Ambrosia!

THURSDAY- THANKSGIVING!!!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Hope your day is full of family, friends and fabulous food!!! Our Thanksgiving menu does not change much from year to year. We all have our favorites and for them not to appear at our table would mean a Thanksgiving day mutiny!!! Not a pretty thing, I’m sure!

I found the best way to roast a turkey. It’s a spin-off of Martha Stewart’s  turkey. It’s an oldie but goodie post. The recipe is amazing but the images… not so much! 

My best turkey advice is to buy a fresh turkey if you can and follow my recipe!!! OH YUM!

Remeber to spend time being Thankful. God is so good!

  • THE BEST THANKSGIVING TURKEY
  • STUFFING 
  • TURKEY GRAVY 
  • MASHED CELERY ROOT AND POTATOES
  • WHIPPED SWEET POTATOES WITH A MAPLE MARSHMALLOW TOPPING

  • PUMPKIN PIE
  • PECAN PIE

FRIDAY

Another new foodie blog, Chew Out Loud! Look at this photography!!!! I could eat this fish right off the computer! I am so partial to a flaky white fish that is not overcooked! I think many home cooks overcook fish. It should be flaky and moist and not dry!!!!

Something a little lighter for the day after Thanksgiving!

SATURDAY- SLOW COOKER SOUP DAY

If you try one thing this week my Beef And More Beef Barly soup is it! It’s a soup that eats like a scrumptious full of flavor meal!

TREAT OF THE WEEK

Once Thanksgiving is behind us let’s start looking towards the next holiday… Hanukkah and Christmas! These are my absolute favorite Christmas Cookies. I know you will love them too!

MY FAVORITE SUGAR COOKIES

Have a scrumptious week!
