My Menu Plan For Thanksgiving

November 25, 2013


This year, my dad and The Running Man’s brother will be joining us for Thanksgiving and I’m the cook.  Even though we only will have a total of 6 at the table, the meal will invariably be enough to feed 20.  So if you are in the area, STOP BY!

Here’s our menu:

1) 18-pound Champagne or Sparkling Apple Cider Turkey – click link for recipe (It’s a WINNER)

2) Stuffing

3) Oyster Stuffing – this is for The Running Man and his bro.  It is rather disgusting, and a sign of true love that I make it for him.  I don rubber gloves and have an airing-out plan for the kitchen.  Wish me luck.

4) Simple Green Beans

5) Mashed Potatoes

6) Sweet Potato Casserole – click link for recipe and MAKE IT!  You’ll be glad you did.

7) Gravy

8) Cranberries with zest of orange, boiled whole in Apple Cider with a few cinnamon sticks.

9) Popovers with Raspberry Butter – click link for recipe.  Such a festive treat.


10) Chocolate Raspberry Pie – I’ll post this recipe after I make it.

11) Apple Pie (X2)

12) Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies/Sugar cookies that we decorate/brownies (haven’t decided on this yet)

What’s on your menu?  Share, share!

    We do traditional – I did a pre Thanksgiving birthday dinner for my uncle last night and had 20 for dinner – with all the standard Thanksgiving fare. My Aunt is having 30 on Thursday and I am bringing the pumpkin pies = and turkey cookies (recipe tomorrow!)
