We all know what we are having on Thursday. But what are you going to have for dinner the rest of the week? Here’s an It’s Not Easy Eating Green menu for this week to get you in the mood for Turkeyday!
Sunday: Football day is Texas Chili
Real Texas Chili goes well with pretty much anything because there are NO BEANS. Serve it by itself, with a bowl of rice, on top of hot dogs or on Fritos for a game day meal.
Enjoy an easy meatless meal so you can start work on the make-ahead items on your holiday menu.
Tuesday: Fusilli with Acorn Squash, Apples, Blue Cheese and Walnuts
Come Tuesday you’ll want a warm comforting pasta like this ultra-rich tasting pasta with squash and blue cheese. Still no meat – we’ll get to that on Thursday!
Wednesday: Breakfast for dinner! Banana Bread Pancakes
You’re probably going to be knee-deep in poultry broth, pies and other to-dos on your Turkeyday list, so just whip up a batch of these pancakes and enjoy your night-before meal!
Thursday: Turkey Day Menu
It’s finally here. Here’s an It’s Not Easy Eating Green menu to get you cooking for the Holiday.
And you’ll need this too: Basic Poultry Stock
Friday: National Leftovers Day
I think that explains itself.
Saturday: Turkey and Dumplings
Use up some of that good poultry broth you made by putting the turkey carcass in the slow-cooker overnight and whip up a batch of this southern classic.
