Let the insanity begin!

November 21, 2007

Yes, it’s that crazy day before Thanksgiving.

Our menu this year:


  • Relish tray (olives, veggies, pickles, pickled green beans, etc.)
  • Tapenade with goat’s cheese and cracker
  • Oysters on the half-shell


  • Mashed potatoes
  • Sweet potato pie
  • Green bean casserole
  • Jello salad
  • Rosemary cranberry sauce
  • Oyster dressing
  • Fairbank family stuffing
  • Turkey
  • Gravy


  • Pumpkin squares
  • Kahlua brownies (maybe)

So far I’ve got the green bean casserole prepared and ready to bake, the Jello salad is done, the pumpkin squares are made, the cranberry relish is made, and the sweet potatoes are baked. I’ve also made the cornbread for the Fairbank family stuffing and have it and some sourdough bread out in the oven drying tonight and will finish drying out the rest of the sourdough in the morning.

That only leaves making the sweet potato pie, baking the turkey, making gravy and finishing the Fairbank family stuffing. And depending on how I feel, how much oven space we have, I may make the Kahlua brownies. We’ll see.
