We are geared up and ready to host the big event tomorrow. We will be 22 for dinner, 26 or more for dessert. The house is clean and the tables are set. We've got to split people into two rooms- the kitchen and dining room. I dream of opening up the dining room to the living room some day so we can have one long table, but until then...
Here's what's on our menu. It should be noted that I'm only responsible for the first four items, and my sister is doing me a huge favor by cutting the five pounds of carrots. Everyone comes together to make this delicious feast!
Cornbread and Sausage Stuffing
Carrots with Shallots, Sage and Thyme
Roasted Butternut Squash
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Biscuits and rolls
Cranberry Sauce and Gravy
Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Gingersnap Crust
Nantucket Cranberry Pie
For me, Thanksgiving is all about the stuffing. And the family togetherness. But the stuffing is so good. I should make it more than once a year. I don't know why I don't.
What's your favorite part of Thanksgiving? What's on your menu?
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday! And, if you're heading out on Black Friday, good luck and be careful. I'm more of a Cyber Monday girl. I'll be hanging out at home, making turkey stock on Friday.
