Thanksgiving: Mission Complete

This year's Thanksgiving Menu:
  • Traditional appetizers: carrot sticks and pickles. Whether they get eaten or not, these are necessary.
  • Salad
  • Turkey: from Wallace Farms. Brined, stuffed, roasted....perfect. Definitely the most moist & flavorful turkey I've made.
  • Ham Steak: (flop! Didn't defrost it, then burned it...tossed it out. Gotta have one flop/holiday, and this was it.)
  • In-bird stuffing
  • Baked stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes & pineapple
  • Green bean casserole
  • Roasted Carrots
  • Wild Rice
  • Stella's cornbread
  • Homemade Cloverleaf Rolls
  • Cranberry Orange Sauce
  • 2 pumpkin pies
  • 1 pecan pie
  • 1 coconut cherry pie (the experiment...recipe coming soon)
Mission for next year includes:
  • All above criteria
  • Don't forget olives
  • Another pie or dessert
  • Another vegetable
  • New sweet potato dish
  • Home made stuffing both in-bird and out-of-bird
  • An experiment
  • Wheat or multigrain rolls
