I almost gave Thanksgiving it's own post, but then realized this week would really consist of only two meals in preparation for and recovery from Thanksgiving, so skipped it!
Monday: Pasta with garlic and Olive Oil Molto Gusto
This recipe looks plain and I was really expecting to hate it. It was actually pretty good! (I guess when you add enough salt and cheese, anything is good!;) ). I'll give this cookbook points for ease, but you certainly aren't going to impress your in laws with any of them that we've tried so far.
Tuesday: Mexican Cheese Soup.
This is a great little slow cooker recipe. Gavin loves it with chips. I had it over french fries Wednesday for lunch.
Wednesday: Alyssa's Pasta Salad.
For some insane reason we still had collage class on Wednesday. Alyssa brought pasta salad which was very good.
Gavin and I spent the holiday home together, but it didn't stop us from cooking like there were going to be about 12 people coming over for dinner!!
|Our Thanksgiving Table|
Stuffing: Gavin made his Grandpa's stuffing recipe. It was delicious, but clearly intended for a larger turkey, we ended up with an entire baking dish of extra stuffing!
Mashed Potatoes: My husband makes the best mashed potatoes. <3
|Pinot Noir Poached Pears with Muddled Wine|
|Tofu Chocolate Mousse|
Friday: Turkey and Vegetable Soup.
I always try to make soup from the leftover turkey bits, and sometimes have some major problems, so changed my methods up a bit this year and made some awesome homemade broth and soup with fresh veggies! I considered making homemade noodle, but we were out of eggs.
It's only Saturday morning, so I'm still guessing about today and tomorrow, but I'm pretty darn sure that's what we're having at least until Monday or Tuesday!!
