Mondays with Monica

How was every ones week? Mine went by fast! Can you believe Thanksgiving is just 3 days away and Christmas....well I don't even want to think about that right now. With everyone busy planning their Thanksgiving meal and getting ready to spend some time with loved ones, how about if I share what's on the menu at my house? Since it's just going to be my husband and little girl this year I decided I would make a turkey breast rather then a whole turkey. To be honest I would rather have ham I am not a big turkey fan but the husband has to have his turkey on Thanksgiving. I was trying to convince him to let me make a duck or something, anything but a turkey but he wasn't having it. Heck I don't know what I would have done if he agreed on the duck, I've never even ate duck in my life let alone cooked one. It just sounds so much better then turkey. So to go with my roasted turkey breast I am making Pioneer Woman's mashed potatoes. Did anyone happen to catch her on Throwdown with Bobby Flay? Her potatoes looked goooood. I wonder who else has decided to add them to their Thanksgiving meal after watching the show. I am also going to be making this Sourdough Bread Stuffing. Made it last year and it was delicious. Of course another side the husband has to have is Green Bean Casserole. I never had this growing up and was only first introduced to it about 9 years ago when I was living in Texas. It's now become a permanent fixture at our Thanksgiving table. And you can't have a Thanksgiving meal without cranberry sauce and rolls. The rolls unfortunately will not be homemade. I am hoping that this is the year I will get the Kitchen Aid I have been wanting for Christmas so that I can learn to bake. If it is then we will be having homemade rolls next year. We will finish off this meal with the obligatory pumpkin pie. I know there's nothing exciting about the menu I have planned but it is sure to satisfy a hungry husband and growing toddler. So what will be on your dinnertime Thursday?

May you all have a wonderful holiday! Until next time...
