Thanksgiving Menu 2011

After much thought, and even more shopping, I've figured out what I'm making for Thanksgiving. It's pretty traditional this year, flavor wise, but there's no turkey and the focus is definitely on autumn vegetables. I'm excited to cook it all and eat with my family.


Roasted ginger-squash soup

Salad with pears and blue cheese

Mashed celery root and potatoes with chives

Roast sweet potato purée with bourbon

Green Beans with breadcrumbs and lemon

Mushroom walnut bread stuffing

Roast chicken with sage


Cranberry sauce

Julia's Dessert (via four and twenty blackbirds):
Salted Caramel Apple Pie

Pretty delicious sounding, right? I'm also going to brine the chicken for the first time. Wish me luck!
