Thanksgiving - What's on the menu?
 
Just wonderin' what kinda spread everyone's having.

Not much here at the Russell house, it's just me and the wife. I don't trust myself just yet to invite people over, nevermind the fact that we don't have a dining table.

Anyway, we're having turkey of course. I'm going to try brining it and I'll be slapping that bad boy on the verticle roaster. It's going to be two expreiments in one. *Fingers crossed* We'll have home made stuffing (for the most part, we bought the bread) it'll be half corn bread and half french bread. The wife's making her awesome mash potatoes and I she's making sweet potatoes or whatever those things are called (I think they're gross). Of course there'll be gravy and we bought some rolls to sop that up with. Apple pie and ice cream round things out for desert.

All in all pretty standard, so yeah, what're you guys having?

this is a similar recipe

however, you make the mashed potatoes, then put the roasted pecans (or walnuts, i forget) on top, then bake :drool:

The wifey is basically going to do two batches of potatoes, normal mashed ones that I like. Then she's going to do the sweet ones, I don't know what she does with them but I'm not a fan and they look kinda gross all mushed up. :eek:

JJR4884 11-25-2008 11:46 AM

i'll try to post up that recipe

have her follow that, it is sooooooo :drool:

the reason i don't like cooking for thanksgiving is because it's the only time of the year i (1) make turkey or (2) roast a bird that large. i don't like making food for guests that i don't know with a reasonable certainty that it'll turn out really well. for me, thanksgiving turkey is a big gamble with big consequences.

some years i stick with duck/chicken/lamb instead of turkey.
