What's For Dinner {Nov 11th}

Eeeeee .....Thanksgiving is almost here!  And I'm really getting in the holiday mood!!

In fact, our first two (of three!) Thanksgiving meals are THIS week!  On Wednesday we celebrate with our small group from church and on Thursday we celebrate with our local homeschool group.  Good thing I love turkey and dressing, right?

It's also time to start thinking ahead toward those big dinners and making as much ahead of time as possible.  Last night I whipped up a quadruple batch of homemade cream soup and a couple of pans of cornbread to prepare for my Crockpot Dressing.  And the Butternut Squash Soup I made last Friday because it's better if you let it sit in the fridge for a few days (just add the bacon at the last minute!).

**Here is a link to some great ideas for making dishes (or parts of them) ahead of time**

Here's what's on our dinner menus for this week:

Monday:  Butternut Squash Soup (pictured above) and Salad with Sweet Onion Dressing

Tuesday:  Stuffed Baked Pasta Shells (from my freezer) with Salad

Wednesday:  "ThanksGrouping" with our small group~I'm making Crockpot Dressing, Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Cranberry Relish, and Corn Casserole
Thursday:  Our Homeschool Group Thanksgiving Potluck~I'm making Crockpot Dressing, Cranberry Sauce, and Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Friday:  {undecided}  ...may talk hubby into taking me out;)

YUM! It all sounds delicious to me! Every Friday night is homemade pizza night at our house. Makes things easy after a week of cooking. :)
