We made stir-fried tofu with spinach today for dinner. This weekend I'm thinking chicken korma.

I've got a whole lot of prep cooking I'm doing this weekend.

I'm trying this stew: Weekend Beef Stew | mrfood.com
Got everything to make my version of this:
Country Vegetable Casserole (Country vegetable casserole - Chatelaine Recipes)
Bread machine Stuffing bread (inspiration--I'll be using fresh herbs, adding some chopped cranberries)
Bread Machine Turkey Stuffing Bread Recipe from CDKitchen.com
Srirachi Fridge Pickles
Sriracha Fridge Pickles: Recipe: bonappetit.com
Some hashbrowns for the freezer (this is how I do mine--but I have also nuked the potatoes to bake them and had success--I usually sprinkle a bit of vinegar over them before I pop them in the freezer and I usually form them into patties)

Oh--I'm also making cranberry salsa and the wildrice for the turkey on Monday. I'm going to try freezing some of the salsa....
Cranberry sauce recipe?

I really should figure out a nice meal for Monday, since it Canadian Thanksgiving. It won't be turkey. I don't like turkey enough to buy it. Maybe I'll make a rolled, stuffed pork loin roast.

Re: My take on the Country Vegetable Casserole recipe. I use veggies from the garden. Since spinach is something we harvest in the spring, I use chard. I add some sliced carrots, use whatever sweet peppers I have (today I had a green one and a red one), yellow and green zucchini, party-pan squash, onions in place of the leeks (leeks didn't fare well this year), and whatever mix of cheese I have. I bleach the cauliflower in a bowl with water to which vinegar is added. I have some swiss, parm, and soft mozz., so those are the cheeses. I also add some grated jalapeno (to the grated cheeses and the veg. mix) because we love jalapeno with just about everything and add some minced It. parsley to the veg mix. I assemble it, put it in the fridge for 1-2 hours or overnight (minus the bread crumbs), and then bake it according to the instructions. For those who don't like cauliflower, broccoli could be subbed for that. I've made this several times. It is quite tasty and, if you have vegetarians joining you during the holidays, it is a nice dish to include.

Oops--forgot a link re: freezer hashbrowns--here's one: http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/make-y...zen-hashbrowns

Red cabbage, good idea. I just bought one. Red cabbage is a staple around here, well at least in winter.

But not potato pancakes. I'll either roast some potato boats around the roast or make Hasselback potatis.

The Hasselback potatis sound great! A friend of mine from Greece used to roast potatoes in the oven. Basically she'd cut the potatoes in half, sprinkle generously with fresh rosemary, sea salt, pepper. She'd put in about 1 c water and 1/2 c olive oil, roast for 1.5 hours at 400. They were soooooo good.

Going with the classic turkey dinner here. It's what my mother likes. She isn't very adventurous. I'll be prepping it at home and driving it to her place to put in the oven. We are going to sort the veggies and sides out when we get there. The usual suspects.
Heading into Ottawa this afternoon to have some Pho with my daughter seeing she won't be able to make it tomorrow. Maybe hit a value village for some bargoooooons.
Thinking about slow roasted pork belly for Monday. Will have to take that out tonight and get it marinating before I leave tomorrow. Craving some sort of saucy potato. May go with scalloped or a creamy au gratin.....

But, potatoes seasoned and then roasted where they will get a lot of pork fat are sooooo yummy. Oh and we toss the potato boats in olive oil to make the seasonings stick.
