Okay, I forced myself to sit down and browse my Pinterest dinner boards for some ideas. Tonight I'm going to make chicken marsala, which is perfect because I have some mushrooms that I need to use up, and a bottle of marsala that's been open forever (which I literally only use in this one recipe).
A couple of other things from my Pinterest boards that I'll try over the next few weeks -
I've made all of these at least once or twice before, so I won't have to learn anything new, but it will be nice to get something a little different on the table. And I'm looking forward to turkey noodle soup after Thursday! I've got a sixteen pound bird, so I'll probably have plenty of extra turkey stock to freeze as well. And I'll need to bake up some rye bread on Friday so we can have turkey sandwiches on Saturday for tree trimming. Good thing I work from home on Fridays so I can peek at the stove every once in a while during the day!
Speaking of tree trimming, we always get our tree and decorate the house on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. So Friday night I'll bake a special coffee cake so breakfast is all ready to go, then I plan on having turkey sandwiches and stuff for lunch. Should be a really fun day - is anyone else doing tree trimming next weekend?
So I guess slowly but surely, I'm getting back into the swing of things with the food malaise.
