I’ve got your Thanksgiving recipes, right here…

montage500This is probably going to be my only post this week. I plan to be slacking at my sister and brother in laws. We will eat more than we should and I may be persuaded to have a tiny glass of wine – to be polite of course. In addition, there will be poker. What? Your family doesn’t celebrate togetherness by playing poker? I thought everyone did – it is right up there with the stuffing for us. If you start your kids playing it early, you can get all of their allowance back, for a few years at least. And it’s way more fun than Candyland.

But I digress – I though I would put together a page of recipes that might come in handy this week. I’m not going to tell you how to cook a turkey, but I have a few odds and ends that might make nice additions to your meal. Most of them are very easy, they use fresh ingredients and they will help make your dinner more special. And when I am counting┬áthe things I am thankful for┬áthis week – and there are many of those – you folks who come to read my blog each day are definitely among them. Happy Thanksgiving – I hope you are thoroughly blessed this year!

    mmmmm, lets make them all. Between hands of course.
    Bring your money, we’re waiting for you!

    This is the bomb! I will do the brussells sprouts for certain and probably one of the breads too. Can’t wait!

    Darnit darnit darnit, Dlyn. Why didn’t this come up in my blog as a new post on the 23rd? If it had, I would have chosen your brussels sprouts recipe instead of the one I ended up choosing (from Williams Sonoma, no less).

    I am just going to have to make them for myself then and have them at home. All for myself.

    It’s not nice to make your cousin hungry … and not feed him!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I am stopping by to thank you for this great list – we enjoyed the brussels sprouts and the squash very much. I can’t wait to see what you come up with for Christmas.
