You thought you might avoid it here on my blog–the Thanksgiving deluge that happens on all food sites this time of year–but this weekend I broke down and cooked a Pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving for Craig and his aunt and uncle. (I’m not cooking for my family in Florida this year–we’re eating out so I can relax and spend quality time at home.) Here’s the breakdown of what I made with links to all of the recipes. Hopefully it’s a handy Thanksgiving guide, delivered just when you need it most.
Thanksgiving this year starts with a Red and Gold Beet Salad with Mache and Goat Cheese (click the name to go to the recipe):
The entree is, of course, turkey but this year it’s a Slow-Roasted Herbed Turkey Breast from Molly Stevens:
On the side, you’ll find Persimmon Cranberry Sauce:
For dessert, I served up a guaranteed winner–Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie (from the Baked guys):
Look at the happy crowd:
Hope you enjoyed this Thanksgiving Menu for 2011! If you want some other options, consider these as you finish up your planning.
Wishing all of you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving!
