Menu Plan for November 21

It is the week of Thanksgiving, and that means an abbreviated dinner menu.  We have two Thanksgiving dinners to prepare for, one hosted by us and one hosted by Mr. Gooch's mother.  We also may be having some friends over for dinner on Wednesday. 

With that, here is our week's menu plan.

Sunday:  Carne Asada with peppers and onions (Mr. Gooch's recipe.  Look for a blog post on this one coming as soon as I get my camera fixed.)
Monday: FITF (Forage in the Fridge)
Tuesday:  WW Southern "Fried" Chicken
Wednesday:  Either FITF or Teriyaki marinated tuna steaks using Trader Joe's Marinade (if friends end up coming over to dinner)
Thursday:  Thanksgiving Dinner at our house
          Alton Brown Roasted Turkey
          Roasted Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes (this recipe with roasted garlic added)
          Garlic Knot Rolls
          Cranberry Orange Chuntey with Cumin and Mustard Seeds (we are skipping the fennel seeds)
          Baileys Marbled Cheesecake (using this recipe as a starting off point)
          Mushroom Gravy (brother Gooch is making this one)
Friday: FITF
Saturday:  Thanksgiving at Mr. Gooch's mother's house.  We are bringing a Baileys Marbled Cheesecake.

Look for blog posts on the Thanksgiving recipes in the next few weeks.
