Weekly Menu Plan – November 29, 2009

The week is over (or just beginning).  I guess it depends on how you look at it.  The busy week is over and a less busy week is starting.  It was so great to spend time with family over the past few days, but it is good to get back to the routine.  I am worn out.  I did manage to get the tree & Christmas decorations up today. 



My Mom, Hannah and I headed out shopping for some great deals on Friday.  We shopped for close to 12 hours.  We got some amazing deals, most I can’t talk about due to peeping eyes!  😉  We stopped for lunch  around noon at Marcella’s.  I am a sucker for risotto, so I ordered the Roasted Chicken & Broccolini Risotto.  It was TDF!  I thought I liked the Seafood Risotto – I think this Roasted Chicken one might be better!  It was the perfect way to refuel.  After lunch we hit up World Market & spent close to an hour in there.  Not because we were in line, because we were having a blast!  I love that place!  The only bummer – they were out of their dark chocolate & sea salt bars that I have been dying to try!  It was a super fun day!  I love spending time with my Mom & Hannah.  The only thing missing was my sister, Kelly.  Here is a picture of us together last December.


This week Manda of Asparagus Thin is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap with the theme of cranberries.  Cranberries rock!  I made my own cranberry sauce for the first time last Thanksgiving.  This year I added a new twist to that recipe and I will be sharing it later this week.   I am also interested in learning how to cook other things with cranberries.  I have been adding the leftover cranberry sauce to my salads….what a great topper!
