I can’t wait to eat all the food we have planned for Thursday! My little sister is coming to town and I’m going to work her hard on Thursday. It will be really fun cooking with her and having all those yummy leftovers afterwards!
- Mashed Potatoes: I make with warm cream (milk if I don’t have cream), melted butter, salt & pepper, and a splash of soy sauce
- Corn Souffle
- Broccoli Casserole
- Butternut Squash: Just going to cook it, mash it, add butter salt & pepper
- Cranberry sauce: This year we’re going canned whole sauce, but click through for a yummy recipe for Cranberry Orange Relish that I normally make, when I’m not about to have a baby.
- Cranberry Slush: This is one of my family’s traditions, going back to my great-grandmother. It is amazing. I have friends who have been known to spike it for extra kick – Great Grandma’s rollin’ in her grave!
- Squash Rolls
I’m also going to make some Rhodes rolls on Friday to use for leftovers – good for making little turkey sandwiches. Again, I normally make Butterhorn Rolls from the Better Homes & Gardnes cookbook, but I need to take it easy this year.
Hope the menu is helpful and that the recipes come in handy! They are all excellent. Tomorrow we’re talking dessert – get ready to share your favorite recipes! Tuesday will be scheduling the cooking – the least fun but most essential part of a successful Thanksgiving dinner.
