Thanksgiving Roundup

Turkey is the standard fare for a Thanksgiving table, but whether you roast a bird or make something else the center of your meal, you’re going to need side dishes and desserts. Some people stick with the traditional dishes like mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. But if you’re looking for some new ideas, check out this roundup.

August Menu ~ 2012

This month’s menu is short one week as I am taking my annual trip to Chicago during the first week of August, but as you can see there is still plenty of recipes to choose from. Below are the meals I have planned for this month with the same idea that Mondays are meatless, Tuesdays are poultry, Wednesdays are Mexican, Thursdays are fish and dessert nights, Fridays are pizza nights, Saturdays are pasta, and Sundays are traditional. There are several new recipes I am working on so links will be added as the meals are posted. I hope you find something you like.
