Turkey Day - What's REALLY on your table, Nov. 28, 2013?

Big day for a lot of folks here on DC.

We're having rosemary-roasted Cornish hens, wild rice-walnut-cranberry stuffing, praline yams (thank you, bakechef), bourbon cranberry sauce, fresh whole green beans, mashed taters, gravy, potato rolls, iced tea and, yum, pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

That ought to do it!!

What's on your table?

I'm not allowed to diverge too much from the traditional 1950's Thanksgiving table but I did spatchcock my bird. Other then that it's mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, glazed carrots, dinner rolls, pumpkin pie and pecan pie. We are going to have a lot of leftovers. At least I am allowed to be creative with them.

Italian seasoned turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, bun stuffing.
Oh, and yesterday someone brought me some homemade pumpkin cookies that are out of this world. They will be dessert.

No table shots, here...the birds are in the toaster oven, everything is ready to go in the last 20 minutes of cooking. I'll be feeding the cats, soon, they think every time I go out in the kitchen it's time for their food.

Had a casserole -- rotini, turkey chunks, and broccoli cuts in an alfredo sauce. Dinner rolls with a garlic butter brush. Son is having teeth trouble and was very happy with the tender little pieces. Chocolate cream pie for dessert, with a can of that whizzy cream for on top.
