Yes ladies!! It is that time again. In just 18 short days we will be in the kitchen preparing and serving food celebrating Thanksgiving once again.So what's on your menu? You can list anything appetizers, meats, sides desserts etc. Also are you having a small or large guest list? Are you hosting or bringing dishes to another loved ones home? Looking forward to seeing some amazing and diverse ways of celebrating the holiday

Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday! This year it is just the 2 of us, but we still cook a big meal. Here's our menu so far:

Roasted citrus-herbs de provence turkey breast with gravy
Focaccia stuffing with chestnuts
Wild rice & cranberry pilaf
Garlic mashed potatoes
Yeast rolls
Cranberry-orange relish
Apple pie

I just realized that's pretty starch heavy! :lol: Maybe I'll add Brussels sprouts...

Okay, we just added Brussels Sprouts Parmyère from Trader Joe's. Saw them in the flyer & they sound delicious!

It's going to be different this year for me since I am not cooking anything. We are planning to go to my parents' home this year. The funny thing is that I haven't eaten turkey in years because we usually eat all the West Indian dishes instead :P

Saw this on tv & decided to do a test run.. delicious & very colorful

Diced sweet potatoes, diced carrots, diced parsnips & small onions (all same size)

Bake until half done & then mix in a stick of melted butter, honey to taste
& chopped toasted pecans..

Pour over veggie/potato mixture & continue to back until done...

Sprinkle thyme on top for color
