The time is here to celebrate
FOOD, oops I mean Thanksgiving. But really people… what would Thanksgiving be without gathering around a table with your loved ones and celebrating the bounty of our blessings? You know I love all things food. And a day that is centered around food = Happy Katy! My mom is hosting Thanksgiving this year and we’ve been discussing the menu for a couple weeks. She’s in love with Pinterest as much as I am, so we’ve been pinning all kinds of recipes via Pinterest. So… Let’s get to the goodness – the MENU!
Main Event: Alton Brown’s Turkey
|Roasted Green Beans w/ Mushrooms||Memama’s Super Yummy Corn|
|Mashed Potatoes||Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Brown Butter|
|Sautéed Carrots, Parsnips & Onions||Sweet Potatoes|
|Lime Ginger Cranberry Sauce (a MUST)||Gravy|
|30 Minute Rolls|
|PW’s Apple Dumplings||Berry Walnut Upside Down Cake|
Super yummy - huh?!?!?! What are your must have items on the table? I love this cranberry sauce – I’ve made it the past three years and it’s a keeper! The leftovers the next day on my turkey sandwich will make me happy all over again!
If you have all that delicious foods to partake in – you’ve got to have a beautiful table as well. Here’s some examples from Thanksgiving past…
