i am probably going to let moms do thanksgiving this year still.
not up to learning to cook everything ever yet.
most likely will involve turkey, deliciously salty stuffing, wild rice/stuffing casserole, butternut squash soop maybe? copious amounts of buttery mashed potatoes, let's see.. mom likes to make asparagus w/ hollandaise too... i know i'm forgetting something... gosh i'm hungry...



lookit me, i'm postin! wheee!

David's aunt has kindly offered to host Thanksgiving this year, so we don't need to worry about cooking, cleaning, etc. We were told just to bring the baby and some light hors d'ouevres Smile I will report back on the menu!

We're gobbling at my big bro's house, and there will be 16 of us. On the menu:
Smoked Gouda baked in crescent rolls as a starter
Cucumber salad
Jello salad (don't ask...it's something my bro's stepmom is doing and it's basically a slice of jello sitting on a lettuce leaf. Ugh.)
Turkey (roast)
Ham (baked)
Shrimp stuffing (my grandmother gave my mother this recipe quite literally from her death bed)
Plain stuffing (for TLOML, who likes nothing in his stuffing but bread)
Cranberry relish With pears poached in coffee (my mom's making this)
Canned cranberry sauce (for the "I like my cranberries gelatinous and tubular" set)
Mashed potatoes
Gravy
Candied Sweet potatoes
Green Bean casserole
Asparagus
Spinach gruyere gratin ( My contribution)
Pumpkin cream pie
Apple pie (I'll be attempting my MIL's recipe...it's baked in a paper bag...wish me luck)

I plan on wearing elastic-waisted clothing to thanksgiving dinner. The only thing missing, I think, is the WHOLE ROASTED PIG. *jealousy*

How can you possibly deep-fry a turkey, except in a commercial fryer?

My uncle has a dedicated propane turkey fryer. We almost set fire to the grass the first year. We keep the hose nearby.

Good grief on the turkey thing.

I think next time I want a massive piece of meat cooked (I hardly if ever do), I'll ask the guys in the shop downstairs with the rotisserie thing to do it for me. One of the contractors said that he got them to do a massive leg of lamb, and it was amazing.

The bag is supposed to prevent the top crust from over browning while allowing the filling to bake up nice and melty. All I know is its the best apple pie I've ever had and she insists the secret's in the paper bag. See?

Yay! I found a reasonably sized and priced turkey breast, so turkey and gravy and mashed potatoes and stuffing and carrots and corn and pumpkin pie!

I should ask Steve if he wants some sweet potatoes and I usually make cranberry sauce and squish out all the seeds, but I think this year I will just buy a can of it!

I baked bread yesterday, so I have a loaf to cut up for the stuffing. And I don't know what possessed me, but I'm also doing spaghetti and goulash today.

Fake turkey (Quorn; no tofu)
Mushroom gravy (my gravy is very good)
Stuffing (not stuffed into anything)
Mashed potato (locally grown)
Roasted root vegetables (mostly locally grown including sweet potato, celeriac, beet, parsnip, carrot, turnip, onion, and some other thing I forgot the name of…)
Cranberry sauce (made from scratch with cranberries)
Pies (pumpkin and apple, probably)

So, reporting back as promised, we had a pretty standard (and very yummy) T-day meal:

Turkey
Green beans (not the casserole, just the beans)
Corn
Stuffing
Cranberry relish (had pieces of various other fruits in there as well)
Mashed potatoes
Gravy

David & I brought raw veggies and dip, crackers and cheese (Havarti and Huntsman), and a warm garlic herb dip with bread pieces for dipping as appetizers. Dessert was an apple crumb pie.

NOM.

It pretty much got invented by Campbell's Soup Company to sell more of their cream of mushroom soup. I usually don't like dishes invented by a company just to sell more of their product, but I make an exception for this because it's so darned tasty, and because the best recipes don't use their brand.

Ah, but has Anthony Bourdain called your WHOLE ROAST PIG the most delicious he's ever tasted? I THINK NOT!
