Everyone is abuzz about Thanksgiving preparations, but I’ve got a big group coming to watch a football game here on Saturday (21 people in total) and no working oven or stove. So I’ve got more pressing entertaining on my mind. Still, I wanted to get my Thanksgiving menu written down so I could at least have that rattling around in my brain while we make coleslaw and smoked brisket this weekend. Anything with an asterisk is being brought by a family member.
Spinach & Artichoke Dip*
Crackers & Crudite
Turkey (I ordered a fresh kosher turkey in the 19 – 21 lb. range)
Mushroom and Caramelized-Shallot Strudel
Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows*
Stuffing (maybe Fig and Pine Nut)
Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Roasted Maple-Bourbon Carrots & Parsnips
Cranberry Sauce (we like the sliced stuff from a can)
I’m sure we’ll find room for:
Chocolate Chip Cookies*
Ina Garten’s Outrageous Brownies
What are you making for Thanksgiving this year?
