I have finalized my menu for Thanksgiving. I usually have this done a lot earlier but time just got away from me. My parents are bringing hors d'oerves and my sister is bringing dessert, apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake (plus something extra for the children). Little brother gets to bring the wine and beer! So here it is.
Roasted Squash Soup with Chestnut Puree
Watercress, Endive and Pear Salad
Perfect Roast Turkey
Herb and Apple Stuffing
Parmesan Smashed Potatoes
Green Beans with Glazed Shallots and Lemon
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Sweet Potato Biscuits with Honey Butter
Cranberry Relish with Ginger
I'd love to hear what everyone else is making or bringing to their Thanksgiving! This is one of my favorite days of the year. My daughters also help me make different kinds of breads to give to family that we will not be seeing on Thanksgiving as well as neighbors and friends. I used to make all the breads from scratch but now we just buy the quick bread mixes. There are so many good ones and we just add some extras to make them more homemade. We put orange rind in the cranberry breads and apples in the cinnamon breads, etc. Its a lot of fun. We make special labels and deliver them Wednesday night so people can enjoy them with their meal on Thursday. I'll post later what we will all be wearing.
