Thanksgiving Prep 2012

 

The day of the great turkey bird is at hand.

I have disappointingly few Thanksgiving recipes in my archives, I've discovered.

Maybe I don't cook much for that day.

 

Or maybe I tend to spend that day passed out in an oversized chair, and by the time I wake up even the leftovers are gone.

Hmm.  Mysteries.

But!  For those of you without perfect Martha Stewart menus put together (so, so few of us, I know), I thought I'd throw out a few suggestions.



These things are tested, tasted, and certainly delicious.  I hope they are helpful to somebody out there still on the search for the perfect feast.

Appetizers:
Roasted Almond Butter Stuffed Apples

Sides:
Garlic Breadsticks with Sea Salt


Vegetables:
Dijon Braised Brussels Sprouts
Wild Rice Salad with Roasted Root Vegetables and Tahini Dressing

Desserts (hmm I guess we can see where my primary interests lie):
Foolproof Pie Crust
Lemon Cheese Braided Bread
Pumpkin Maple Spice Whoopie Pies
Hazelnut Maple Pie
Sweet Potato Pie
Buttered Walnut Creme Brulee

Drinks:
Homemade Ginger Ale



What are you planning for the big day?  And if you are in a country that isn't the US, what are you planning to eat on Thursday?  I MUST KNOW.
