Menu Plan for Thanksgiving Week

Oh my ~ it's Thanksgiving week!  We've had a fun-filled, relaxing weekend, but now there's lots of baking to do! 

Here's what I've planned so far:

Monday is our church Thanksgiving Dinner; I am planning to bring an apple cake, an apple pie, and possibly one other dish that I haven't decided on yet.  Any suggestions?

Tuesday I am keeping dinner simple.  Potato soup, served with crumbled turkey bacon and crusty bread is on the menu.

Wednesday some family is coming in from out-of-town, and my sweet mama is making dinner for us all.   I may bring an apple cake, and glaze it with a light frosting.

Thursday we are hosting dinner at our house, with lots of yummy dishes on the menu:  roasted turkey (my husband handles this, and it always comes out wonderful!), broccoli salad, fresh baked pretzel bread, gravy, stuffing, pumpkin cheesecake, pecan pie, and more!  My mama is bringing over mashed potatoes and candied sweet potatoes, too.

Friday we'll plan to have leftovers.  That's what everyone is planning, right? :)

Aren't you excited?  What a special week this will be!  I'm so thankful to be spending it with those I cherish most!

I've shared my ideas for Thanksgiving decor here, if you'd like to take a peek.

Are you hosting Thanksgiving at your home?  What's your favorite dish to prepare?

  1. Jaime, what a wonderful week full of celebration and family. Thanks for linking up. Going to check out the recipes.

  2. I loved the Thanksgiving decoration ideas and am going to borrow them. We will host Thanksgiving at our home. We will brine the turkey, which makes a fabulously juicey turkey. I am making my husband's grandmothers pumpkin chiffon pie for the first time. A cousin is bringing smoked gouda sweet potatoes with bacon which is outstanding. Have a very blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. Jasmine, I hope you enjoy perusing the recipes!

    Dawn, We brine our turkey, too, in apple cider. What do you use for a brine? And pumpkin chiffon pie sounds wonderful... you'll have to share the recipe!

  4. What a perfect day for leftovers! We did host Thanksgiving this year, lots of family, too much food. My favorite thing is a baked alaska pumpkin pie (pumpkin pie with ice cream!). Thanks so much for joining my party. The snow knocked our cable out or I would have been around sooner to thank you.
