Thanksgiving is 10 days away, I haven’t started shopping yet, but here’s my game plan. Does this post look familiar? Why yes, it does look remarkably similar to my previous Thanksgiving Post ;P)
I included a few helpful links at the bottom to help with inspiration!
Links to the recipe that I will be using ^^ ( in case anyone needs a last-minute menu ! ) You’ll notice, many of these links are from Martha Stewart. The MSL empire built my culinary foundations, so that’s where I like to search for recipes.
My Thanksgiving Dinner Plan.
Appetizers ( AKA, what I’m eating while I’m cooking)
- Potato Gratins ( with a Twist!)
- Deviled Eggs
- Cheese and Charcuterie platter
- nothing fancy, just using up what’s in the fridge – so all MY fav cheeses 😉
- Old Fashion Turkey
- I used fresh herbs last year, with veggies in the drip pan. It was so good! This year, I’m going to try “Flipping the Bird” !
- Lamb shoulder Chops
- Apparently my dad doesn’t like turkey – which I thought was his favorite part of the meal! …Still trying to wrap my head around the years of deceit, LOL.
- Cambell’s Green Bean Casserole
- What it says on the can.
- Wild rice “Stuffing”
- Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- This ATK recipe is gold – sorry Martha!
- Baked Cauliflower
- I add some curry powder/ cumin to spice things up
- Spiced Lemony Brussels Sprouts
- Make sure the Brussels Sprouts are in even sections and as always, they taste better with some char 😉
- Pastry Shells, filled with Whipped Cream
- one day, the novelty of constructing a tower of concentric circles with creme puffs will get old; but until I’m making one every chance I get ^^
- Chocolate Pecan Pie
- the recipe calls for Sorghum syrup, which can be hard to find, I use molasses syrup in a pinch.
…and, that’s a Wrap!
I’m using an Excel file to stay organized while I preparing large dinner. I will share it if anyone is interested; its not pretty, but all the columns and formulas are there.
