Menu Plan Monday: Fall Foods

Well, it's autumn here in SoCal, and that generally means that the weather can't make up it's mind from one day to the next. Rainy and cold, rainy and warm, almost 80 ... I long for the days where I can wear boots and sweaters without wondering if I am going to create a personal sauna by being overdressed.

This past weekend was on the chilly side, so it got me to thinking about fall foods. I usually make a lot of soup and casseroles this time of year. This being Thanksgiving week, I get to cook less, and more. This Thanksgiving will be the smallest I have ever cooked for. Ever. Just two people. It seems ... wrong. Onto the menu!

Monday: Broccoli Cheese Soup
Tuesday: Baked Salmon or Chicken Chili
Wednesday: Alaskan Pollak with Black Bean Compote
Thursday: Thanksgiving! Turkey, Bacon Roasted Potatoes & Aspragus, Cranberry Apricot Relish with Ginger & Orange Zest, biscuits, sweet potato pie -- the turkey and sweet potato pie will be my usual recipes (I'll post those soon in case you're still looking for an awesome recipe), but the russet potatoes and cranberry sauce are new that I pulled from Google+.
Friday: Leftovers
Saturday: Turkey Noodle Soup or Turkey Casserole
Sunday: Leftovers

P.S. I just want to thank everyone who keeps stopping in on Mondays. I have a bunch of posts backlogged as well as recipes, so I will try to get those up ASAP.
