It’s that time of year again for giving thanks, sharing blessings with family & friends and feasting till you explode. Every year, the Queen Mum and I put out heads together to plan a menu for our Thanksgiving Day Feast featuring old favorites yet always adding in/trying something new.
Once again, I believe we are going to put our foot off in this dinner ~ of course, we are having help with the superior culinary turkey roasting skills of our BFF Joe Pollhein, Sr. (yeah, that turkey last year ~ finger lickin’, tryptophan inducing awesome). P.S. We are at 15 people so far. I LOVE IT!!! So, without further ado:
Thanksgiving 2012 @ True Blessings Estate
Avocado, Bacon & Tomato Crostini’s
Crab Rangoon Dip
Cider Bourbon Glazed Roast Turkey w/Homemade Gravy
Crown Roast of Pork w/Fennel-Apple Stuffing & Cider Bourbon Sauce
Cranberry Sauce w/Pinot Noir
Three (or more) Cheese Macaroni & Cheese -Erin
Queen Mum Baked Beans
Balsamic Green Beans
Spiced Mashed Squash w/Marshmallow Meringue
Wilted Garlic Kale
Cornbread, Sausage & Pecan Dressing
Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust
Rum Raisin Bread Pudding
Pumpkin Spiced Mudslides
Coquito De Mami Morrillo
We gonna throw down. The doors to the Estate are open if you don't have a place to hang your hat & pull up a seat. Bring a bottle of wine and wear stretchy pants (or bring some sweats for the inevitable tryptophan coma). Give me a holla if ya wanna join us.
Do you plan a menu or go with the traditional staples? Do you have your menu planned yet?
