Thanksgiving Countdown!

T minus 4 days!

I’ve researched my recipes (old and new!) and written my grocery list and prepartions to-do list. This weekend I made no less than 3 trips to food shop (to 2 different stores!) so I can check that off the to-do list. Yippee! Yesterday, I made the cranberry sauce and my pie crusts (one nut based) and my turkey is in the refrigerator defrosting. Lots of cooking left to do but I’m getting very excited about Thanksgiving 2013!

Here is our menu:

Roast Sage Turkey & Gravy
Stuffing with Sausage and Leeks
Cranberry Sauce (already done!)
Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Brussel Sprouts with Bacon
Sweet Potato & Pumpkin Pie (gluten free crust!)
Apple & Pear Fruit Crisp

I have a really yummy breakfast/dessert dish I need to post. Unfortunately, some of my final pictures weren’t great and it gotten completely devoured before I could re-shoot! Here is a preview:


But now I need to figure out our dinner for tonight!

Thanksgiving Question!

Thanksgiving Question!

These past few weeks have just been crazy, flying by! The kind where I need to put things on my to-do list like: shower and eat. If I don’t write it down, sometimes it doesn’t happen!

I am back-logged with tons of recipes to post that need to be photographed and written down! I can’t wait to share them with you because they are awesome!

In the meantime, I am starting to figure out our Thanksgiving menu. I want to post some of my favorite recipes for this time of year but I wanted to ask you how you feel about the Thanksgiving meal: traditional or updated?

Whether you cook or eat Thanksgiving dinner, do you want the traditional recipes or do you look for new ones or a mix of both?

I really look forward to seeing which one wins out! I am planning on doing some of both.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? I always love the stuffing! Its something I only ever eat that day and the leftovers are just so delicious. They are almost better the next day! YUM!

Here’s a just quick pic of my sweet little guy! I know he’s going to love his first Thanksgiving dinner, he likes to eat everything!

This was last year’s Thanksgiving at our friend’s home. It was an amazing spread for 7 adults! Haha! I hope ours will live up to this one because I remember it was all so good!
