Is anyone else planning Thanksgiving dinner yet? Last year I was in the the throes of morning sickness and it suuuuuuuuuuuucked so this year I am making up for lost time. Let me just put it to you this way – we’re going to have two different kinds of rolls.
Here’s our menu:
Breakfast: Cinnamon rolls, fruit salad, coffee, mimosas
stuffing with chestnuts, apricots, and sausage
mashed potatoes and gravy (Every once in a while someone tells me about a Thanksgiving dinner where NO MASHED POTATOES WERE SERVED. I have to stick my fingers in my ears and hum so I escape hearing about these types of things, lest I be haunted at night for the rest of my life by the thought of Thanksgiving with NO MASHED POTATOES.)
cranberries two ways (and the two ways are the kind loose from a can and the kind jellied from a can, sliced.)
Martha’s sweet potato biscuits
buttered rosemary rolls
southern style green beans
spinach and iceberg lettuce salad with ranch dressing and radishes
roasted brussels sprouts
pumpkin pie (ick)
ginger apple cheesecake (mmmmm)
PS Every year my sister names our turkey and my mother’s turkey after some celebrity du jour. We’ve had Mary Kate and Ashley Olson, Frankie Munez, Hilary Duff, Britney Spears. This year I’m pulling for Justin Bieber, but I would also accept Taylor Swift.
