Thankfully, all your girls are kitchen-friendly! Oh enjoy!

Please tell me you do not do all that yourself! I'm in charge of sweet potatoes, a fancy greens dish (which my husband will commandeer), dairy-free mashed potatoes and a gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate pie, and that is *quite* enough!! But then again, my children are still too young to do much work on the front end of the holiday. They do an excellent job cleaning their plates, though!

It sounds like a delicious menu. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Of course you had me running to Google Anna. For the Aussies and maybe the Brits (?) the rutabaga is a swede.

One thing you can be sure of is there will be more than enough. :)

Lisa said...

Ah, I have been wondering what a swede is!

Your menu sounds intriguing...a few things I've never tried, and I'm sure it has to be yummy! And your photo is quite unique...lovely plumes on those grasses, and the sun shining just right. Beautiful!

Wow! I would love to see your kitchen with all that going on! How do you cook 3 turkeys?

We skipped turkey this year and had roasted organic chicken and it was delicious. I made 1 gluten free stuffing in addition to the other sides.
