November Monthly Meal Wrap Up

November is always the BEST month for meals because THANKSGIVING! But, before I get to that, I finally picked up Seriously Delish by Jessica Merchant of How Sweet Eats blog.

So far we've tried the breakfast cookies, because I can't resist a breakfast cookie - and these were quite tasty.
We also tried the Chicken Pitas with Jalapeno Whipped Feta.
These were rather tasty, however I think I'll do about half the jalapeno next time. I can handle spicy, but I spent a lot of time roasting garlic for the whipped feta and I want to taste more than just the hot pepper. Since we had some left over feta, I decided to try Half Baked Harvest's Easy Greek Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki and Potatoes.
This was really easy! And good... However, I'll crank the oven down or cook it for less time than directed next time, as the chicken was super dry and the potatoes got a bit burned.
We also got out for a bite to eat after checking out the Funko HQ, which was a blast. If you are local, I highly recommend hitting up Scuttlebutt Brewing with the kids after a visit to Funko. Good beer, food, and service!
I enjoyed my fish tacos and the few bites I stole from my husband's spicy chicken sandwich. 
And, of course, we stuffed ourselves silly on Thanksgiving with perfectly brined turkey, stuffing, potato casserole and a big green salad - the links to all my traditional recipes can be found in this post. My favorite use of leftovers: turkey cranberry salad
 and a fried egg atop leftover stuffing!
Now it's time to regroup and get ready for all of the Christmas holiday eats!


  1. I have a copy of Seriously Delish and have NOT used it...hmm. Maybe I should open that up - hahaha! Wow, I am such a cookbook hoarder.

    1. Haha! I think that getting them from the library adds a sense of urgency ;)
