I’ve teamed up with a group of awesome food bloggers to bring you the Thrive at Five Meal Plan. We want to help you get homemade dinners on the table, so each Friday we’ll be doing a roundup of recipes to help you plan your weekly dinners…and maybe a few snacks too!
For Thrive at Five Meal Plan- Week #2 there’s a mix of cuisines for dinner, a couple Christmas recipes and you have to scroll down and see Carrie’s creative waffles. It’s a great selection of recipes to help you rebound from Thanksgiving and get into the spirit of the upcoming holidays…
Speaking of holidays, we had a very nice Thanksgiving with my parents. As always, guests are wonderful recipe testers. On the menu was barbecued turkey (1st try spatchcocked), persimmon cake (1st try), maple walnut pie (3rd try), and cranberry chutney (2nd try) so we should have new recipes coming to the blog soon. But of course we had some tried and true Vintage Kitty recipes on the table too like Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli Casserole and Rosemary Sweet Potato Rolls. And it’s not a holiday without some traditional recipes, so we had pumpkin pie (my grandmother’s recipe) and deviled eggs (no one makes them as good as my mom). So much food, so I’m very full as I type this now!
This weekend we hope to get some yard work done (so many leaves to rake) and hopefully do some Small Business Saturday shopping. After all this pie I think some exercise is also in order. I will also be working on recipes for Christmas gifts.
How was your Thanksgiving? Would love to hear about your holiday festivities! Leave me a comment below or find me on Facebook @vintagekittycom, Twitter @the VintageKitty and Instagram @vintagekittyblog.
