Writing up the menu every year for Thanksgiving is pretty easy for me now, I just cut and paste from previous years! I don't have much new to add this year, although I might try and make these Linzer Muffins I saw in the most recent Cooking Light issue for a weekend treat, along with our Cranberry Orange Bread. I just love hitting the store this time of year, with all the end caps filled with yummy, festive and traditional foods. The Ferrero Rocher boxes and cases of sparkling cider are things I NEVER buy. But it makes me happy to see them, ya know?
- Monday - Pizza
- Tuesday - Burrito Bowls with Creamy Chipotle Sauce (from The Garden Grazer)
- Wednesday - Autumn Chopped Salad (a favorite Pinterest find from Espresso and Cream)
- Thursday - Thanksgiving!
roast turkey breast (we buy a 5lb breast and have used Alton Brown's brine recipe for about the last six years - DELICIOUS)
classing New England style stuffing with sausage and chestnuts, I also add granny smith apples to this recipe we've been using from Cooking Light for about ten years
hash brown potato casserole - this Cooking Light version has also been a staple of ours for many years
crescent rolls - trying my aunt's recipe this year, wish me luck - I HATE cooking with yeast...
mixed greens salad I use the bones of this recipe, omitting chicken/bacon and add Trader Joes spicy/sweet pecans and apples
cranberry sauce - bought jarred stuff from Trader Joes this year
pumpkin pie - I just pick one up from the store as the kids are really the ones who eat it and they're not very particular about their pie
