We had our party on Saturday and it was a hit. The food we had catered in was phenomenal (and not that expensive), my cake was delicious (even though it didn't quite look like the picture - I'll post more later) and the kids loved Just Dance 3 (we hosted a House Party this weekend). Definitely a successful party.
Between leftovers from the party and Thanksgiving this is going to be an exra easy week in the menu planning department. Here is the plan
- Leftovers x2
- $1 fish taco night at one of our favorite restaurants
- Chicken taco buffet (I throw the "fixings" on the table and the family makes whatever they want. We have quesadillas, soft shell and hard shell tacos as well as taco salad.)
- Thanksgiving dinner - We actually have two dinners to attend. In addition to supplying the turkey at one of the dinners, I'll also be taking sides to each of the dinners. I'm planning on making Granny's Cranberry Relish as well as the Pecan Topped Sweet Potatoes. The best part is I can make these in advance and enjoy (from the sidelines) the 5K that my daughter and her cousins are doing Thanksgiving morning.
- TBD - my husband is working this weekend so it will be just the kids and I. I'll probably do some kind of soup or something.
What's on your menu this week? If you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner I'd love to hear what you are serving.
