Welcome to Week 83 of our weekly meal plan posts, y’all! And since this is the last Friday before Thanksgiving–and how did that happen–we have a collection of recipes to enjoy at Thanksgiving. Let’s go, shall we?
We have some really wonderful recipes for you, from “standard” Thanksgiving fare to seasonal appetizers and two ways to cook turkey. Before we get started with our cornucopia of Thanksgiving recipes, don’t forget to check the archives for dozens and dozens more recipes.
Citrus Herb Roasted Turkey from Comfortably Domestic. First of all, this photo is gorgeous. Second of all citrus and poultry were made for each other. Third, Kirsten has kindly provided us with the rules for her technique adapted for whole birds or bone-in breasts. PLUS a bonus gravy recipe. Nice!
White and Wild Rice Stuffing from me. For those of you who are gluten-free or are just looking for a different take on stuffing this year, my rice-based stuffing is full of sausage, dried fruit, and chopped kale for good measure!
Cranberry Turkey Puff Pastry Tartlets from The Speckled Palate. What wonderful little bites for a holiday cocktail party–and you could even make these with Thanksgiving leftovers. Loving the puff pastry bases for these tartlets!
5-Ingredient Corn Casserole from Pook’s Pantry. I love corn casserole. Love it. I’m making this. The end.
Crock Pot Turkey Breast from Jessica Gavin. Our latest Guest Diva, Jessica Gavin who is an actual food scientist so knows Many Things, is here to tell us that we can cook our turkey in our slow cooker. I, for one, find this to be welcome information. A flavorful spice rub and another gravy recipe make this post a real winner. And you can’t have too many ways to cook your turkey!
Caramel Pumpkin Mousse from me. Start with caramelized sugar to whip up this lighter-than-air pumpkin mousse. If you’re not feeling caramelly, I also give you instructions for making it with granulated sugar instead of caramelized. Lighter than pie and no sharing!
Praline Pumpkin Upside Down Cake from The Speckled Palate. Would you please just take a moment to look at this cake? Erin is killing me with this–pralines and pumpkin? I am in! I love that this started out as an experiment and it turned out so well it made the cut for the blog. So you know it’s going to be spectacular!
And that brings us to the end of our weekly menu plan. I know you’ll find at least a handful of dishes to enrich your Thanksgiving table!

Thanks for spending some time with your divas today. Take care, and have a lovely Thanksgiving.
