If you have been a StoneGable reader from way back when you might remember ON THE MENU! Well, it’s back!!!! Maybe for just a little while, but maybe for the long haul. Right now I am primarily posting this for me. I love to menu plan and do a much better job sticking to my food budget if I do! So, if you are new to ON THE MENU… I hope it gives you tons of ideas for yummy meals and lots of StoneGable tips and goings-on. And if you were sorry to see it go… I hope will continue to enjoy the revamped weekly menus and share your recipes here too!
Okay friends, I would love you to post your recipes, menu plans, foodie ideas tips, and any links to amazing meals in the comment section of each ON THE MENU post! Let’s be a sharing community!
Here’s what’s ON THE MENU this week…
If you are looking for a traditional Sunday Dinner for your family, this is it! So easy and delicious! We’ll eat early today because I am going to book club this evening. I did not love the book this month, but that’s all part of book club!
- Nani’s Sauteed Chicken
This is my son Christopher’s favorite dinner. I never made it until he went on a hunting trip to Vermont when he was just a lad and had it there. I don’t make it as often as I should so he will love this meal! Chris and Abby… you are invited!
- Easy Shepherd’s Pie (see recipe next week)
- Tomato, cucumber and onion salad
Today, I’m gathering all the elements for my Thanksgiving table next week. I store everything in dollar store plastic dishpans and keep them in the laundry room. Doing this saves so much time when I’m ready to set the table. Do you have a tip for preparing for Thanksgiving? Leave it in the comments and we will all love you for it!
Soup! I could eat soup every day! This is a winner!
Bobby and I are decorating the tree today. I know… so early! But as a blogger, I stay about 6 weeks ahead of the calendar to give you time to enjoy the posts and use the inspiration in your home. This year’s tree… lots of red plaid! I’m mad for plaid!
Are you doing Christmas shopping yet? If you are, make sure you wrap-as-you-go! Wrapping gifts ahead is such a time saver and keeps that big job from being a huge stressor! You can see my makeshift wrapping station that is a lifesaver every year HERE.
- Mashed Potatoes
- Sauteed Spinach with Currants
Today I’m making a list of all the bowls, platters, pots, pans, serving utensils etc I’ll need for Thanksgiving. I may even get them all out and ready! I stow all the prep item for Thanksgiving in the laundry room.
I’m making Christmas ornaments today. Fun plaid ones! Look for them soon on StoneGable!
- Roasted Pork Tenderloin With Maple Mustard Sauce
- Grilled Polenta
- Spinach Salad
OTHER EATS THIS WEEK:
My son-in-law loves this. I’ll make it now, nibble on some and save the rest for Thanksgiving weekend!
I’m making one recipe for us this week. Next week I’ll make another for feeding a crowd over the Thanksgiving weekend.
