thanksgiving menu

We are ready for Thanksgiving! I thought I would post our menu here on the blog. We will be sure to take lots of pictures and I will post some recipes after Thursday. We are planning on a lot of different dishes, but a lot of the prep is already done. Sarah and I wanted to have a fairly traditional turkey / gravy / stuffing spread, but we are adding some more Asian-inspired vegetable sides.

  • Butterflied Turkey (using this recipe from Serious Eats)
  • “Churkey” Gravy (I made a double stock with some bought turkey parts and frozen chicken stock a few weeks back, then concentrated and froze it. On Monday, Sarah used it to make a rich, wine-y gravy that we refrigerated and will reheat with the pan juices from the turkey)
  • Sausage-Sage Dressing (with this recipe from SE)
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Braised Collards with Shiitakes and Oyster Sauce
  • Stir-Fried Green Beans with Shallot, Butter, and Soy
  • Gingered Glazed Carrots
  • Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Fish Sauce and Bacon
  • Roasted Pear Salad with Pomegranates, Walnuts, and Blue Cheese
  • Curried Squash Soup
  • Homemade Dinner Rolls
  • Browned-Butter Caramel Ice Cream
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Cranberry-Blueberry Pie
  • Applesmack (this a Sarah creation – it’s sort of like an Applejack Old Fashioned, but with honey. Delicious!)
  • Wine
  • Beer

What are you having for your Thanksgiving?
