We had a wonderful thanksgiving and sure hope you did to.Here it is time to make another meal plan. There are so many wonderful recipes to cook this time of the year and seems like not nearly enough days to get it done. Making meal plans this time of the year allows me not only to make great meals plans but to use some of my left overs which will sure strecth the food budget. Extra money is always nice to have especially this time of the year!

Our Baked Turkey and Ham Sandwich Roll is a great baked sandwich roll that can be made with left overs and can be served in a very short cooking time.  A delicious recipe that can be made ahead of time and reheated just before serving. The combination of this sandwich has a great flavor that will keep you coming back for seconds. The recipe can be served as an appetizer, a nice lunch or lite dinner.

Meal Plan's become very important for holiday plans and this week we will be working on the Thanksgiving meal plan. I will be planning to do as much prep work on the meal as is possible and that will be key to having a relaxed day to spend with friends and family. I love thanksgiving and all the traditional recipes that we use on our meal plan. This year we will have 1 empty place at our table, to represent one of our family members that is currently deployed out of country. One year in the early 90's we had 3 empty places at our table for family members who were deployed out of country. As our loved ones gather round the table we will be remembering all those who have passed down our way of life and kept the freedoms of this life sacared, we shall be forever grateful!

Meal plans are so important especially this time of the year when our families are so busy with special events. It has been unusually cold here in our area so it is nice to keep some homemade potpourri simmering on the back burner, it helps the house smell good and puts moisture back in the house.  Potpourri Ideas 6 cups water 2 or 3 cinnamon sticks orange peal from 1 orange lemon peal from 1 lemon 1 tablespoon cloves Simmer In An Open Sauce Pan

Baked Pepper Jelly Brussels Sprouts

Often times when I am developing a recipe, it just comes together, from what I have on hand. The day I put this recipe together, I had a basket of Brussels Sprouts from the farmers market, some bacon, and green onions. I always keep a well stocked pantry for my meal plans, so I had several items that would give great flavor. This is the recipe that I came up with and it is just delicious! I have made it several times since that day and it has been a big hit with friends and family.

Crock Pot Mixed Potato Gratin

The color and flavor of this mixed potato gratin recipe is divine. This is a recipe that you will definitely want to serve for your special occasions. We have used a mix of sweet potatoes and gold Yukon potatoes with a decadent herb sauce for the potatoes to slowly bake in. I have used my buffet style crock pot which allows a great presentation for such a beautiful side dish. This is a great dish to take to a covered dish event or a family gathering. You can do other things while this is slowly cooking and will be ready to set on the table with very little effort. This is on the top of my list for any holiday meal.


Nutty Cranberry Pumpkin Poke Cake

Just a few of my friends dropping over this evening for a Grateful Gathering. I am serving this delicious Nutty Cranberry Pumpkin Poke Cake. It is a new recipe and sure hope that they like it. I often times test my new recipes on my Gathering Group, what better way to have a true taste test. I will let you know what they think at the end of the post.

November is here, the month of gratitude and food. I am always excited to make the meal plans for November with the wonderful fall foods that our family really enjoy. The fall festivals are abundant in our area with all the local organizations featuring the hand crafts of their membership hoping to raise funds for each of the chairtable causes. I am personally involved with an organization that provides food from a food pantry all year round. We are so blessed and consider it joy to be able to give back in some small way.
