    I used leftovers on Thursday to make lunch for today and tomorrow. I sauteed onion in olive oil, then added mushrooms, next garlic, the leftover maple glazed roasted sweet potatoes, the leftover bulgur, then a small can of white chicken. I added some torn kale leaves—which I should have added before the warmed bulgur, but I added a bit of chicken broth so it would wilt.

    I made another batch of yogurt.

    For Thursday dinner, I made stir-fry using soba noodles, leftover pork and the drippings from deglazing the pan. For vegetables, I used carrots, celery, the last of the red bell pepper from our garden, green onion tops from a pot my husband has been growing, broccoli, and mushrooms.

    Note: Day of the week corrected.

    I made Chicken Breasts Creme la Orange from Cook-Ahead Cookery for tomorrow and subsequent days.

    Later, I’m going to make pizza dough and try out my new dough bucket.

    On Friday, I roasted a peanut pumpkin, made puree, and froze it for later use. I made sure to have five 1/2 cup containers, as I particularly like it in Skeptic’s pumpkin biscotti recipe.

    On Saturday, I made another batch of applesauce with the Gold Rush and Winesap “seconds” we bought. I was going to freeze it all, but my husband wanted some with dinner, so I put some in a bowl for the next couple of days and froze the rest. I have enough apples for at least two more batches. With the turkey in the refrigerator to start thawing, I have room for it in the freezer.

    For dinner on Saturday, I made green pea soup with carrots, celery, and ham; I season it at the end with dried thyme and marjoram. We have enough for several more meals.

    I had planned leftovers for dinner, but my husband ate them for lunch! So we had grilled salmon basted with maple syrup, cole slaw, steamed broccoli from the freezer, and roasted potatoes with Penzey’s Pasta Sprinkles.

    I had my brother over for an early Thanksgiving Saturday. I made a 10 pound turkey, unstuffed and I cut out the backbone to open up the cavity. Seasoned it the day before with some kosher salt, a little sugar, thyme and sage. Made mushroom gravy using a package of frozen mushrooms from Whole Foods which were very tasty, brown rice and fresh green beans. Also had cornbread. Dessert was pumpkin pie with peppermint flavored whipped topping and a scoop of toffee caramel swirl ice cream (that ice cream is really good!).
