Thanksgiving 2011

Like Tree16Likes

We're having my SIL and her family over for dinner. I'm making:

Turkey
Stuffing & dressing (we have people who like both, so I make the same recipe and cook half in the bird and half out)
Mashed potatoes
Gravy
Corn
Broccoli cheese casserole
Cranberry sauce
Pumpkin pie
Pumpkin cheesecake w/ gluten free gingersnap crust
Apple crisp

SIL is bringing:

Yeast rolls
Peas
Green bean casserole
Pistachio Jello salad (I think...I dunno, I never eat it due to my nut allergy)
Cherry pie

I love making Thanksgiving dinner. It's just the four of us and we're not crazy-big eaters so I keep it fairly simple.

Turkey
dressing
gravy
mashed potatoes
cranberry sauce
sweet potato praline casserole
green beans
buttermilk biscuits
cherry pie - not very Thanksgiving-y but no one likes pumpkin and I can't eat a whole pecan pie by myself

Ran into this vegan stuffed mushroom recipe and thought of this thread....looks pretty simple

I found it!

I'm making this:


Baked Sweet Potatoes and Apples


Using my iphone with my toe thumbs. There will be typos.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

Ah, I was wondering if you live with a bunch of pie haters!
How can you hate pie? Pie is perfect! I don't care what filling it has (unless it's nuts and that's just because they will kill me), I will eat some pie.

It's pie season. Well, summer is pie season, too. And then in spring there's rhubarb, so, yeah. And winter is citrus time, and I love me some Shaker lemon pie and blood orange tarts.

But fall is awesome for pie:
Concord grapes
Plums (at the beginning of fall)
Tomatoes (at the beginning as well; mmmm, tomato pie)
Apples
Pears
Cranberries
Persimmons
Sweet potatoes
Winter squash
QUINCE!!!
Plus figs and nuts, too!

So many pies to bake, so little time.

Like I said, I know cherry pie is not traditional Thanksgiving fare, but my husband requested cherry and I couldn't say no. I lurve him!

But, the menu is usually pretty standard, basic, something along those lines.

Turkey with stuffing and dressing
Cranberries
Corn
Green bean casserole
Mashed potatoes
Candied sweet potatoes
My grandmother's pumpkin pie recipe which is pretty spicy
A less spicy pumpkin pie

Nothing particularly interesting or novel or creative, but it's what we do and enjoy. There's a sort of comfort and stability in having the set thing for years running.
