It’s time to start planning for our Thanksgiving weekend meals.
I’m starting with my previous post Thanksgiving Menu 2010 and will make adjustments as needed.
I’m thinking maybe adding an Apple Pie and excluding the Pumpkin Pie, although it does seem like a violation of the holiday to do that.
Turkey, Dressing (or Stuffing)
Mashed Potatoes & Giblet Gravy
Yam & Cranberry Casserole
Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon
Pies: Mixed Berry, Texas Pecan, Apple or Pumpkin
Here is my beginning grocery list:
- Fresh Veggies – celery, carrots, onions, flat leaf parsley, curly leaf parsley, russet potatoes (& maybe yukon golds – 2 lbs), fresh cranberries, fresh mixed berries (or frozen), 2 – 10oz bags brussel sprouts, walnuts,
- Canned and boxed goods – quick cooking tapioca, canned evaporated milk, canned pumpkin, canned cranberry sauce, shortening, dry yeast, canned sliced or chopped mushrooms, canned sliced black olives, chicken stock, corn meal or cornbread mix, stuffing mix, kitchen bouquet, 2 – 17oz canned yams, miniature marshmallows,
- Refrigerated and Frozen products – butter, margarine, whole turkey, turkey breast, turkey bone parts for broth, eggs, heavy cream, fresh berries, bacon, vanilla ice-cream, milk,
