I have had a few emails asking me what I'm serving for Thanksgiving dinner?
Here is a sneak peak into my turkey day holiday menu, and some nice photos I took of leaves on my lawn this rainy weekend and some cool pumpkins!.
I like tradition and basically serve the same menu every year.
It's not because I am boring, because I am NOT.
It's just why mess with a good thing?
Everyone loves my stuffing, my dad loves the sweet potato dish that I make and my turkey breasts are a home run.
So, I am keeping it plain and simple this year, No marshmallows on yams.
Maybe I will mix it up a bit and change the hors d'oevres! oooooh, so daring!
Thanksgiving Menu for 8
~ Herb Roast Turkey Breast (click on link to recipe) w/ Onion Gravy
~ Tom Colicchio's Caramelized Onion Stuffing (w/ raisins and breakfast sausage.....so good!)
~ Sweet Potato Gratin w/ Orange and Honey
~ Roasted Autumn Vegetables (brussel sprouts, carrots, cauliflower & potatoes)
~ Spanakopita (Greek spinach pie)
~ Cranberry Orange Relish
~ Some sort of Apple Cake
~ Chocolate Pecan Pie
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday.
I love the season and the foods that go with it.
It is a time to give thanks for all the good things in our lives: family, friends, health, love and FOOD!
