My family is pretty minimal then. But we're all pretty concious about what we eat these days. Not in a diet way, just in a healthy way. I try and stay away from gravy, even though it's delicious. Haha. I've never been to a Thanksgiving dinner where they serve Mac and Cheese and that seems fairly common in the States. I sort of find it interesting to tell you the truth.

Happy Turkey Day, lady!

Its just the two of us this year, AND its my first year cooking. We're having a traditional feast, minus all the foodie porn I'd probably use if I had a few thanksgiving's under my belt.

We're having:

Roasted herbed turkey breast roulade
Stuffing with apples, slivered almonds, sage, and carrots
Sweet Potato Casserole (the one they serve at Ruth's Chris, its amazing with a crumbly sweet pecan topping)
Cranberry-Ginger-Apple Chutney
Mashed Potatos (I like these as traditional and as lumpy as possible!)
Broccoli Casserole (family recipe thats made with loads of processed food but is probably my FAVORITE thanksgiving dish).
Homemade croissants (because hubby is French)

Dessert is apple pie and homemade chocolate mouse, and we've got a bottle or three of wine and a bottle of champagne. There will be nothing but sleeping tonight, I'm sure.

This is the first year in over two decades that I won't be cooking the entire feast. I'm a little ambivalent about it. I do love to cook Thanksgiving but between school and work I haven't had time. A friend of ours took pity on us and invited us over. I'm bringing two veggie side dishes: an Ina Garten wild mushroom stew (my first time making it) and my usual bacon/brussel sprout/spinach warm salad.

I'll let you know what we end up eating. She's an amazing cook, far better than I am, and way more adventurous, so I'm looking forward to the meal -- and the company, of course!

That's what I missed today!

Our meal consisted of:

Smoked turkey
Cornbread dressing
Mashed potatoes
Corn side dish (no idea what my mom calls it)
Mixed vegetables
Giblet gravy
Cranberry sauce

Sweet potato pie
Pumpkin pie

Dinner rolls and sweet tea to finish it off.

After a short nap it's now time for round two!

We had two types of stuffing, Cranberry sauce, salad, macaroni, sweet potato pie, cornbread (Thick like cake), Fried Turkey, Ham, and the new addition of beef brisket.

I had mine with a liter of green tea. lol

Me too! I had not had Mac and Cheese with Thanksgiving dinner either, til I came to New York. Near as I can figure, it's a Southern thing, that has worked it's way into other parts of the country now. It's an excellent addition to the roster though, I have to say! Particularly if you have a ham.
