Thanksgiving menu 2009

by Karen on November 23, 2009

ThanksgivingI know I’ve bragged about him before, but it bears repeating: my husband is a fantastic cook, and Thanksgiving is his specialty. For the past two years, he’s whipped up some of the best Thanksgiving dishes I’ve ever tasted.

Last year, we spent Thanksgiving Day at a friend’s house for a potluck meal, but he still insisted on cooking our own Thanksgiving meal from scratch on Friday. He’s kind of obsessed.

This year we’re excited to finally cook a meal for family. Tony’s parents and sister will be visiting us for the long weekend. Instead of posting our weekly meal plan, I’ve decided to share our Thanksgiving menu and the original recipes that inspired our dishes. Tony has made many adaptations to these recipes to make them his own, but I highly recommend trying any of these dishes if you’re looking for a new twist on your Thanksgiving favorites (especially the green bean casserole).

I’ll be doing the baking this year, and I’m making apple pie for the first time. Wish me luck!

What are your favorite Thanksgiving recipes? Share a link below!

Yum yum! Have you ever tried sour cream in your mashed potatoes? Pretty tasty! However one of my fav Thanksgiving recipes is for pumpkin roll–like this: http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/desserts/harvest-pumpkin-roll/

Thanks for the cranberry compote recipe! I’ve been meaning to find one, as I bought a bag of fresh cranberries and had no idea what to do with them. That recipe fits the bill.

I’m making the cranberry stuff, spinach balls, broccoli salad, pretzel salad, tiny turkey dinner cupcakes, and a veggie tray.

It’s just our little family plus my friend’s little family. And yet, there will be enough food for a dozen people. Heh!
