I am so happy I have people too cook for this Thanksgiving. It’s normally my favorite holiday of the year, mainly because it doesn’t have the pressure some other holidays do. I love to cook for others, and this is a great excuse to make an abundance of sides and not feel bad. Plus, a new-to-me stuffing. There’s no gift giving, and did I mention the food? It’s also nice to reflect on what is truly important and relax before the Christmas rush. Not to mention there are cool parades on TV.
Another of my friends posted her Thanksgiving menu, and I thought I’d do the same.
Roasted Turkey (I will brine it the day before. I think it adds a lot flavor and makes for a moister bird. We are getting our turkey from World Hunger Relief, as we did last year. I like it much better than a factory bird.)
Bourbon Cranberry Compote
Honeyed Carrots and Oranges
Brie and Chive Biscuits
Wild Rice and Mushroom Pilaf
Roasted Red Potatoes
Green Beans with Bacon Vinaigrette
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Maple-Whipped Sweet Potatoes
Maple Pumpkin Tart or Pumpkin Pie
