Thankgiving Time!

Sorry, I've not been posting frequently.

This is my favorite holiday of the entire year!  Just giving thanks, no religious themes, no remember the war dead

I may have not been posting, but I have started cooking for Thanksgiving.  Sunday I made the meat sauce for the lasagna that I'll make Wednesday.  Today I'm making corn bread for a stuffing...and I'm using white corn meal...see who notices...

This is what I've come up with:

Lasagna and Salad
Brined Roasted Turkey w/Traditional Stuffing
(I cover this one with cheesecloth that had been soaked in melted butter and white wine)
Roasted Turkey with Sausage & Fennel Stuffing
Brussels Sprouts w/bacon and walnuts
Mashed Potatoes
Garden Peas
Sweet Potato 'Cannelloni'
Green Beans w/shallots and crumbs
Jellied Cranberry Sauce
Whole Cranberry Relish

We're having 20!  More the merrier...the guests are bringing the apps and desserts.

I promise to take some pics and post a few of the more interesting recipes.

Happy Eating!

  1. Rick, thanks for the invite ... we'll definitely make it some year. Mike and I are making our own turkey, and I'm looking to your list above for inspiration. Do post the pics, and have a great time. You could do anything in the kitchen!
