Thanksgiving Recipe Round-up

I have several more recipes to post over the next few days that I hope you find worthy of your Thanksgiving weekend. However, here is a quick round-up of recipes for your feast on Thursday.

Meat
Citrus and Sage Roasted Turkey Breast (I’m sure this general idea would work for a whole turkey. You would need a bit more of the oil/herb/citrus mixture and definitely need to cook it longer.

Halloween Recipe Roundup

While Halloween seems to be a holiday revolving around candy, you can easily mix some healthier foods into your traditions as well. If you are looking for some meal ideas for this weekend, here are some fun and sometimes spooky ideas:

Zucchini Soup is a great choice. Call it snot soup, witches brew, or Hulk soup for something more festive.

Dinner in a pumpkin is always a hit.

I know chili is a Halloween stand-by for many. Sweet potato chili in the crockpot

or regular chili on the stove-top are great options.

Curried Squash Soup
I feel like anything orange is a Halloween, so I’m nominating Curried Squash Soup for your menu.

Spaghetti Squash with Marinara
And for the non-soup crowd, spaghetti squash with marinara served in the peel like this looks a lot like brains. Gross, but fun.

Pretzel rolls become spooky if you “carve” fun designs in the top rather than just slashes.

Breadsticks
Breadsticks are an easy side dish that can be shaped to look like bones, and these breadsticks are super fast.

Since Halloween is on a Saturday, you might even have time for a fun breakfast. Or I always love breakfast for dinner.

Southwest Eggs Benedict
Southwest Eggs Benedict look like big eye balls with green monster goo on top.

Pumpkin ANYTHING screams Halloween, so try either French toast

or pancakes.

Happy haunting and eating everyone!
