It's the beginning of November and time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. Looks like it will be just the wife and myself again this year, but that doesn't stop me from fixing up the whole deal. Seems like we have fallen in to a rut, same ole menu year after year.
I'm going to share what our menu will most likely be this year, and hopefully with input from others' menus I may switch things up a bit.
Smoked Turkey breast, haven't decided on this years brine whether to go citrus or maple
Roasted Turkey (small), mainly for the dark meat for the dogs but also for gravy stock and giblets
Gravy w/ giblets
Stuffing with pecans and cranberries
Candied Yams with marshmallows
Green bean surprise
Acorn squash (for me, she don't like it)
Cranberry sauce (for her, I don't like it)
Apple Pie w/ whipped topping
This will end up giving us 4-5 days worth of meals. You know the drill; Thanksgiving (Thurs), Thanksgiving the sequel (Friday), Turkey and gravy over toast (Sat), Turkey salad tortilla bowls (Sun).
Any ideas or favorites for a Turkey brine?? Willing to try something new this year.
