Good morning, what’s new, what’s good? I hope you had fun, productive weekends all around! Here’s a quick recap mine.
[Clockwise: Saturday morning gym session, breakfast scramble of champions, the woodman whistling whilst he works, post-Sugarfish shared desserts after Jeff (Andrew’s brother)’s birthday dinner]
[Clockwise: Swedish (fish) pancakes + persimmons for Sunday brunch, major signage @ the farmers’ market, $20 (to the penny) worth of produce from said market, turkey burgers + kale salad for a lovely Sunday dinner]
And now to what’s really on my mind…
It’s never to early to start thinking about Thanksgiving (dinner).
Yesterday morning, as I was sitting down to make this week’s meal plan, I clicked over to Food52 and saw that they’ve already got their Guide to Thanksgiving up.
As a non-believer in the premature explosion of Christmas decorations, I am of the “It’s never too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinner” camp. A full day that people devote to creating and celebrating real, whole foods is something I fully endorse.
We are still a couple weeks out from the real meal, so this week’s meal plan is just going to start getting us in the mood for Thanksgiving. Here’s what’s on tap:
SUNDAY – Turkey burgers w/ kale salad (shredded kale, dried cranberries, red onion, sliced almonds, cubed cheddar)
MONDAY – Curried pumpkin + red lentil soup w/ leftover salad
TUESDAY – Leftover burgers + leftover soup
WEDNESDAY – Fresh green bean casserole
THURSDAY – Leftovers
FRIDAY – Wing it (Get it?? Wing it? Birds? Thanksgiving!)
Speaking of Thanksgiving… I should hate everything about this: Soda + Vons (don’t get me started) + Consumerismization of Thanksgiving
But I kinda like it. Have a great week!
