Thanksgiving Plans

*Thanksgiving Day Menu*

for 21


Two turkeys
Two hams 
Sweet potatoes with marshmallows
Mashed potatoes--regular and dairy-free
Cornbread dressing
Wild rice dressing
Tian of beets, tomatoes, and potatoes
Roasted carrots and parsnips
Roast butternut squash with cranberries and feta cheese
Lemony green beans
Garlic greens
Butternut squash and kale gratin
Brussel sprouts and chestnuts
Cranberry sauce

Various pies


First we're having an informal two-family Turkey Trot at the running trail. We'll all start at the same time, and run different distances, and hopefully end all at the same time. Then have breakfast.

And we've already raked the leaves, mowed the last mowing of the year (so late!), cleaned out the chicken coop and goat stall, spread manure on the garden, tilled the garden, and bought hay.

Friday we'll be resting while it rains.

A happy Thanksgiving to all of you Anna!

Is the tian simple those vegetables layered and roasted? It sounds lovely.

I hope this link works for you. My daughter chose to wear the dress you made and sold on etsy. I just wanted to share a picture of her in it with you. :-)

Just popping by to wish you a happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you. Enjoy your feast and family time.

Anna said...

Kate, that's so sweet!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

The meal and all the day's activities sound sweet and good. Squash with cranberries and feta isn't a combination I'd ever think of either, so thank you for the idea. I just did a search for recipes for that combination, and the finished dish looks so strikingly colorful. I will have to try it. Happy Thanksgiving. :)
