Thanksgiving Menu

DSC_0022Well friends, the week has arrived. The recipes have been chosen. The menu has been finalized. The groceries will be procured TODAY! The feast will commence on Thursday!!!

Here’s what we’re having this year for Thanksgiving Dinner:

       White Truffle Butter Roasted Turkey

       Uncle Floyd’s Mashed Potatoes

       Sweet Potato Soufflé

      Kathy’s Green Bean Casserole

       Slow-cooked Stuffing

       Mom’s To-Die-For Crescent Rolls

       Apple Cranberry Walnut Salad

       Perfect Cranberry Sauce

With Turkey as the star of the main meal and all those delicious supporting dishes, it is sure to be a gastronomic experience to remember. I literally cannot wait!

Of course there will be Apple and Pumpkin Pie provided by my mom. She really has pie-making down to an art. This crisp, flaky, buttery, but not-too-sweet crust filled with the just-right fruit and spice filling (always a little more cinnamon than a recipe calls for) is pie heaven.

I am adding jalepeno jelly to my grocery list because I am already dreaming of leftover turkey sandwiches smeared in said jelly and cream cheese. Yes!

There will be games, and movies, and hopefully I can convince my Rough and Tumble to take a post-dinner coma (nap) or go for a very, very long play in their favorite tree. Fingers crossed.

Our Thanksgiving table is already set. Seriously. I am teaching a spin class Thanksgiving morning, so I am doing all I can to get set and prepped before the big day. Here’s another peak at our table.

Today I’ll make the Cranberry Sauce and tomorrow I’ll whip up the Sweet Potatoes. I’m hoping to be ready to rev up my spin class and then come home and put the bird directly into the oven.

Don’t forget the tunes. I’ll be sharing a Thanksgiving playlist later today, and I’m super excited to have this refurbished radio as my music piece.

What are you eating this Thanksgiving? Where will you be traveling? Who will be coming to visit? Wishing all of you a wonderful day filled with gratitude, remembrance, love, and more LOVE!

XX, Megan
