Recipes of the Week! (11/18-11/22)

So this weeks “Recipes of the Week” is thrown off with the holidays, but, here is my portion of the week before Thanksgiving prep-day! For Thanksgiving this year, I am bringing a punch of some sort, still undecided between this Bumble Brown Punch, this Brown Butter Spiced Ale and this Sparkling Pomegranate Punch. I am also bringing my yummy Cranberry Orange Cardamom Clafoutis with a few minor changes (because my boyfriend has a sweeter tooth than I). I will be adding more sugar to the recipe and am soaking my cranberries in a sugar-water to take away some of the tartness. I will also be adding more orange and cardamom. What are you bringing for Thanksgiving this year? If it isn’t your lucky year to host? ;)

Harvest Wild Rice Skillet by Pinch Of Yum


Review: Yummy, I added one red pepper and lots of garlic and it was definitely a hit! Making this again, for sure!

Groceries: 1 Onion, 1 Butternut Squash, 2 c Wild Rice, 2 c Kale, 2 c Apples


Gnocchi with Pesto and Green Beans from Pink Basil


Review: I guess I wasn’t a big fan.. I would have liked pesto gnocchi alone, as a side of some sort, but, pesto with the green beans… just didn’t mesh for me.

Groceries: Gnocchi , Pesto of choice (I had leftover store-bought from my Broccoli Pesto Bake), 3 cups Green Beans


And a HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you for the rest of your week! My Thursday, Friday and Saturday will consist of eating all of the delicious Turkey leftovers!
