It’s Thanksgiving week! Are you busy? Busier than busy probably! But remember in all the craziness and preparation for Thanksgiving dinner and beyond make time to eat healthy meals. Take the time to make and sit down to dinner. Relax and refresh! When I’m busy and not making great choices because of all the work I have to do I often let eating healthy meals slip So here are seven delicious dinner recipes with you in mind!
As we celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so thankful for YOU!
Here’s what’s on the menu…
I love an easy salmon recipe and this one from Will Cook For Smiles is infused with orange flavor. And salmon and orange pare so well together! YUM!
- FOUR INGREDIENT ORANGE SALMON
- GARLIC PARMESAN ROASTED RED POTATOES
- SAUTEED BROCCOLI WITH SHALLOTS AND RED PEPPERS
I love an easy recipe and Bobby loves pasta. So tonight’s dinner is a win/win! You can find this delicious recipe at Southern Bites.
Cooking with Marsala wine is divine! It has the most wonderful flavor and loves to play with braised food! I can’t wait to try this recipe from one of my favorite foodie blog Seasons and Suppers.
- MARSALA BRAISED PORK WITH CARROTS AND POTATOES

We have such a fun day after Thanksgiving tradition. We send all the boys in our extended family out for breakfast, baby boys and all. And then they go on a hike.
The girls, in their jp’s (and that’s important), pull out all the Thanksgiving leftovers and eat only what we love. For me my plate will have stuffing and gravy, a little Turkey and not one single green thing on it! Lisa, my sister who is a gourmet cook and an ex-chef, will eat the Green Jello salad! Go figure! And we will drink coffee and chat and laugh and read decorating and cooking magazines! Four generations of women! I almost love this more than Thanksgiving day itself!
