I have to admit Thanksgiving snuck up on me.
I know, it sounds weird when you consider Turkey Day is the same day every year, but when you head out of town for two weekends in November, plus have a novel to write, you skip most of the ten thousand ads for turkeys and Black Friday. I have to admit I like it that way, especially because even though I lost the battle on not getting a whole turkey this year (as I do every year), I don’t actually have to cook it. My husband loves turkey and therefore is the designated roaster, while I can sit back and do the “easy” work of the sides and dessert.
What’s on your menu for the day? Here’s ours:
I prefer to have a good breakfast and then the turkey dinner actually at dinnertime, with snacks in between as needed.
Baked brie en croute with spicy pepper jam
Red pepper hummus
Whole grain baguette
Chard or kale (dependent on the CSA box today)
Roasted eggplant, tomato, peppers, and garlic (dependent on CSA box)
Steamed green beans
Biscuits with honey butter
Sweet Potato Pie
