This week’s menu is quite hearty and filled again with wonderful fall flavors! I’m going to cook a mini Thanksgiving this week. No not the whole meal but a turkey breast and a very yummy Thanksgiving-inspired side dish! Here’s what’s on the menu this week…

What an absolutely gorgeous, easy recipe for a weeknight and I think it is even company worthy! This scrumptious main dish is WW friendly and GF! Thanks, Katerina at Diethood!
I get done working a bit later on Tuesday’s so I need a meal that is either frozen or I can put together quickly!
These easy quesadillas will be perfect and they are only 5 freestyle points! A big thank you to Dashing Dish!
Today we are having a mini Thanksgiving dinner! I don’t make a turkey breast very often and they are easy to roast and are so so good. And a turkey breast offers great leftovers. And my favorite… a carcass for soup!
A big thank you to Sara at Dinner At The Zoo!
The Brussel sprouts and butternuts squash side dish would be perfect for Thanksgiving! I’ll rework this recipe to be a “skinner” version for dinner tonight! Beautiful recipe from Julia’s Album!
- ROASTED TURKEY BREAST WITH GARLIC AND HERBS
- ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUT, CINNAMON BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH DRIED CRANBERRIES AND PECANS
THURSDAY- SLOW COOKER DAY
My Mom makes the best chili! It’s a bit sweet. Not as in sugary sweet, but just enough to balance the spicy!
Tonight’s recipe from Trish at Mom Time Out will allow me to brown the hamburger and sautee the veggies up in advance and then put it together with all the other ingredients in my slow cooker! I might make up a whole bunch of hamburger mixture and freeze it for a few crockpot chili meals!
I loved Stuffed Acorn Squash SOOOOOO much I am reprising it again this week. It was a HUGE hit at StoneGable. We are having family here at the Tanglewood house for the weekend and I can’t wait to make this recipe for dinner!
If you make one thing this week, this should be it!
What a treat! A succulent prime rib roast! With family home this weekend and a roast is such an easy meal to prepare!
I’m a girl who loves a good sauce! However, so many sauces call for heavy cream. And if you are watching your points like I am you don’t want to use them on high point sauces even though they are divine!
I found a way to make a sauce that tastes like you used heavy cream! Use no-fat Greek yogurt and a splash of evaporated milk in lieu of cream. I use Greek yogurt in a 1-1 ratio to cream and add a couple TBS evaporated milk to the sauce to thin it out a bit. It is delicious! And creamy and hardly any points at all! I hope you will give it a try!
Aren’t these pork chops dreamy good? I have made them before and just like all of Christina’s recipes at Eatwell 101, they are fantastic!
I think these pork chops would be tasty over noodles, but since I’m GF we will be eating it over rice.
- GARLIC PORK CHOPS IN CREAMY MUSHROOM SAUCE
- RICE (leftover from Thursday)
- SERIOUSLY BEST BROCCOLI OF YOUR LIFE
SWEET TREAT OF THE WEEK…
If you like cookies that you don’t have to bake, and are filled with wonderful ingredients and are GF and are not too sweet then you will want to try my MERRY NO-BAKE COOKIE BALLS.
I covered some with chocolate and they are my favorite! I hope you give them a try!
Other recipes I am making this week…
Have a scrumptious week!
