Curry and Comfort's Weekly Sunday Summary 11/17/14 thru 11/23/14

Yum
 

Happy Sunday Everyone!

 We're only a few days away from Thanksgiving and I need to get busy shopping for all the dishes I am contributing to my family's Thanksgiving table.   It's hard when you are known for loving to cook and having a cooking blog no less to just take only one dish and call it a day.  So I've signed up for several dishes and desserts, plus an appetizer.  Okay... I'm just slightly overwhelmed!

Some of the dishes I'm taking are my Quinoa, Veggie ad Sausage Stuffing because there are a few of us trying to eat low-carb.  Of course, Thanksgiving would not be the same without my mother's Sausage Stuffing so I'm also making that dish. Then there is my homemade Green Bean Casserole, Cranberry and Pineapple Chutney, spinach dip and two desserts I have yet to decide on making. 

Okay... I don't have time to chit-chat... I better get busy shopping and cooking.   I have a few more Thanksgiving dishes to bring you before "Turkey Day" so don't forget to drop by and check them out.   Now here is my week in review...

Stuffing Waffles

Yum

 I love Thanksgiving because it's all about getting together with family and friends and eating some good (really good) food.  My favorite part is actually the leftovers.  I am all about having a lot of leftovers to enjoy for many days after Thanksgiving.  

The fact is after days of cooking nonstop, I need a little break.  So after the big event I like to take it easy in the kitchen for a couple of days and not think too much about cooking.  I love when the fridge is full of leftovers so I can take a little of this and a little of that to nibble and enjoy.  Of course eating the same food for days can be a little boring too.  So if you want to play around with your leftovers, check out http://www.foodnetwork.com/ for some great ideas on what to do with your Thanksgiving Day leftovers.  

I saw this stuffing waffle brunch idea at http://www.foodnetwork.com/  and knew I had to try it out.  My kids just loved them and got such a big kick out eating stuffing waffles.   It was a great way of giving the day old stuffing new life and so much fun to make.  I loved how cute my plate of leftovers looked... but it wasn't too cute to gobble right up.

Now since Thanksgiving is less than a week away, you may still be looking for some dishes to make for your holiday table. So, don't hesitate to head over to  http://www.foodnetwork.com/ to see all the great appetizer, turkey dishes, side dishes and desserts you can try to make your Thanksgiving extra delicious.
