We got a free turkey from Shop-Rite (spend XXX $$ get a free turkey), we also got some gift cards for Shop-Rite so dinner will be lovely.

My Thanksgiving pies. I will whip up some heavy cream with vanilla and a bit of sugar later to top.





The apple pie isn't brown because it's burned. I gave it a milk wash. Then I gave it a nice dusting of Trader Joe's cinnamon sugar grinder. You can't see it in the picture but the light is sparkling off the sugar crystals. It looks so good. LOL

Menu:

Appetizers
Stuffed Mushrooms
Cream cheese, stuffed green olive & walnut poppers

Entrée
Roasted Turkey
Stuffing
Mashed Sweet Potato & Acorn Squash
Brussels sprouts
String bean salad
Mashed potatoes
Turkey Gravy
Cranberry/Tangerine Relish
Cranberry sauce

Dessert
Apple pie
Pumpkin pie
Homemade Whipped cream

Beverages
Assorted soda
Sparkling cranberry apple cider
happy thanksgiving, msm! the pies are perfection! the shining light sparkling off of your pie is not from the sugar crystals, msm. that sparkling light is reflecting from your face, which is aglow with hope and thankfulness! look to the light, it is a beacon for the future....

I'm at my shop....opening just half day. One of my employees cooked a whole turkey mole for all of us for breakfast and lunch. Good stuff.....had some of that already.
Tonight, we're feasting at my in-laws for 2 styles of turkey, the traditional western style with gravy and the juicy Central American style. They're setting up tables outside in the patio for about 40.

Kathleen made core of her Thanksgiving menu as it was just the two of us.

Turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, thanksgiving salad, and dumplings. She forgot the asparagus, but that was fine.

The meal was fantastic, and I don't feel so stuffed as if she had made the full spread.

*burp*

I've always wanted to try this recipe and today is as good a day as any. I had some nice big spuds in the last bag I bought, too, which will work well.
Not that I've entirely ruled out wings

I had a lovely meal with some dear friends. Spread out over 4 hours, in order of apprearance; champagne, we all successfully avoided the nut and dried fruit appetizers, ham, scalloped potatoes, brussel sprouts, broccoli, corn pudding, cole slaw, pop overs, cappuccinos, pumpkin custard and home made ice cream.

We traveled to my favorite cousin's house, where we had a very bland, glutin-free meal with a lot of great folks. I took the turkey carcass back to BIL's house, where we are making a nice stock.
