This Year’s Thanksgiving Menu Plan

November 16, 2012

It seems like Thanksgiving has come up quickly this year.  Earlier this week it suddenly hit me that I better start thinking ahead.  I’m planning a pretty traditional dinner this year, sticking with tried-and-true dishes for the most part.  We’ll do two smaller birds, one shown here and one to be smoked by my son who is a king of outdoor cooking.    I’m still undecided about sweet potatoes but I’m testing out a savory Sweet Potato Gratin recipe this weekend.  If it’s a hit it’ll be repeated on Thursday.  In addition to these favorites, I’m adding a pecan pie and, if there’s time, a batch of warm yeast rolls.

What are your family’s Thanksgiving favorites?

Brined and Roux-Roasted Turkey

Sage Mashed Potatoes (I’ll leave out the garlic in this recipe.)

I’m totally bummed I didn’t find this post until after Thanksgiving. Those corn pudding stuffed pumpkins look amazing.
