In My Home This Week: A Fresh Start, Menus and Work Plans
It seems fitting to post this lovely vintage magazine advertisement with pumpkin pies on the counter and turkey ready to go into the oven to roast...It is Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. I have a turkey breast in the fridge thawing even as I write and my menu is written down, all except for 1 side dish. I'm unsure which I shall make at the moment, but I've plenty of things to choose from.
We've just had a lovely Shabat in our home. More and more often I find I indulge in a long nap mid-afternoon, something I don't typically allow myself, but somehow it never affects my rest Saturday night. I always take the nap as a blessing.
You'll find fewer meals than usual on my menu this week. John will be working tomorrow and Thursday. I'll have dinner at my mom's, where a very small immediate family gathering is planned for Thursday and there will be leftovers for Sunday (tomorrow). Friday I'm making a small Thanksgiving Meal for us. I plan to have leftovers on Saturday so no menu for that day either.
I've had a little help planning meals...John's sitting here beside me watching TV and just mentioned two meals he'd like to have. He doesn't know what a help he's been!
