This weekend we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving with our best friends. They made the long trek from Boston to visit us in our new home in Toronto. We did the full Thanksgiving dinner with the turkey, corn bread pudding, sausage stuffing, brussels sprouts sautéed with bacon, green bean almandine, homemade cranberry sauce and homemade gravy. Both of the boys requested their favorite pies for dessert; apple pie and pumpkin pie. Having our friends here to entertain made being in Canada feel a little more normal to us. Lucky for us, we get to go back home for American Thanksgiving next month.
As I planned the menu for this week’s dinners, I found myself reading through your whole 30 and Paleo inspire dinners. We are going to incorporate more this into our lifestyle, but still need more information and time to prep for it. Have any favorite recipes? Share them below in the comments.
On the menu this week:
Monday- Turkey leftovers
Tuesday- Turkey quesadillas for kids, I’ll do turkey lettuce wraps.
Wednesday- New recipe from the website Real food whole life.com, Tuscan pumpkin pasta sauce.
Thursday- Crockpot minestrone soup from our Paleo life.com
Friday- Pizza night
