The full Thanksgiving dinner here... pumpkin soup, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, peas, carrots, brussel sprouts, the traditional Pillsbury Crescent rolls and green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie.

I make my B sprouts just the opposite, Q, I saute them first to give them caramelization, then simmer in chicken broth. Two ways to skin the cat.
Sounds like a real feast you are putting together. Very nice!

Tonight I'll probably get to the wings I did not make last night, or maybe pick something else up at the store.

Going to sis-in-laws for Thanksgiving dinner. I know there will be turkey there, and since I've been charged with bringing potatoes, I know there will be those, too. Beyond that, I don't much know.

By the way, I decided to make Potatoes Dauphinoise. Very elegant. And since I'm not a white potato eater, I'm also bringing along Chili-Lime Sweet Potatoes.

Happy Thanksgiving U.S.A.

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

We've got a pretty traditional Thanksgiving meal going, too. Turkey with stuffing is in the oven; extra dressing is in the fridge. Dough for rolls is going in the bread machine (never done this before - hope it turns out!). Next will be making mashed potatoes and roasted butternut squash, then gravy with the turkey-neck stock I made Tuesday. Pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream for dessert.
