This year’s Thanksgiving is much quieter than last year’s. Last year, we had approximately 20 people at our home for a traditional dinner. We made turkey, duck, cornbread stuffing, Parker House rolls, and much more. It was a 2-day cooking event.
This year we won’t have any kids with us, as both sets are with their other parents. It will be just my husband, myself, and our best friends. As there are only adult palates to please, we have chosen a more gourmet and unique Thanksgiving menu.
Being the foodies, my husband and I have offered to cook the meal. Both of us are excited to spend the morning cooking together. It is a nice change of pace to focus only on food and not the other demands of the world.
Our menu consists of the following dishes:
- Banana Cream Pie
Late in the Day Dinner:
- Roasted Turkey Sandwiches with Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Yes, even though we are making a non-traditional dinner, there was a request for turkey for sandwiches later in the day. So. . .we are cooking a turkey also!
I am hopeful that these recipes are a hit, as I have made only one of them previously. If they prove to be as good as they sound, they will be posted on Tasty Thoughts in the coming weeks.
I hope all of my readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
