Thanksgiving Week Menu

This will be a very full week for us! We will be celebrating alot and enjoying wonderful time with family and friends. First, I want to share two seasonal recipes - Amy recommended these pumpkin pancakes so I made them tonight for my family and they were fantastic (seriously, best pancakes ever!) and I also made pumpkin cranberry crumb muffins for our breakfasts this week! And I will be making pumpkin cheesecake for our Saturday gathering - we love pumpkin!

So here's the plan for this fun week:
Monday: Mexican Lasagna, Guacomole & Chips, Salad

Tuesday: Lentil Soup, Biscuits, Applesauce

Wednesday: Leftovers (hors'devours w/sibs after Thanksgiving service - Honey Fruit & Nut Brie, Tomato Caprese on Bread, Veggies & Dip, Fruit)

Thursday noon (pitch-in at my parents): Cherry Pie, French Silk Pie, Pecan Pie, Blueberry-Raspberry Pie - can you tell I'm responsible for some of the pie? :), Catherine's Sweet Potato Cranberry Streusel Casserole

Thursday evening (my in-laws will be coming): Thanksgiving Sandwich, Corn & Potato Chowder, Baked Sweet Potato Chips, Salad

Friday: Snacky food, egg nog - we will be decorating our Christmas tree during the day! In the evening, we will spend time with friends from highschool - not sure what I will take, yet...

Saturday (extended family gathering): Pumpkin White Chocolate Cheesecake, Caramel Macchiato Cheesecake, Double Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies (I'm responsible for some of the dessert), Cheese, Crackers

Sunday: Leftovers

I think that's it! Lots of baking this week which I love but don't get to do very often anymore! Check out for more menu plans. I've also been adding recipes to my recipe blog so feel free to check it out.

Yum! Looks like a great menu and a great week, and looks like you'll have your hands, and oven full!

I think those Double Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies need to come home with me . . . warmed and crumbled on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream of course!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Everything sounds great! I am excited about pumpkin pancakes & think I need to try them. :)

I'm really looking forward to decorating our Christmas tree. We're going to visit the DH's parents in Co but as soon as we get home- it's time for a tree and decorations! Have fun Friday!

Great looking menu! I'm always on the lookout to incorporate more of pumpkin and I love making cheesecakes. :D I made a Mocha one for our Sunday Thanksgiving dinner at church. :D Thanks for sharing your menu and links for recipes! :D

Have a great day!
