After visiting 5 stores, I have all the ingredients needed for my Thanksgiving Feast
. However, I still need to make one more stop to pick up heavy cream,butter, milk, pans for the chaffing dishes, and apple cider from Sam’s Club. They simply have the best prices for those items. I will also need about 40 pounds of ice for the turkey brine and to keep the sodas cold, which I will get Wednesday evening.
I am considering adding roasted asparagus to the menu. There are a lot of nice green and white varieties at the market. I have never had it before either. I have also added a simple cornbread stuffing for a more traditional taste. It will be cornbread, sourdough bread, celery,onions, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper and chicken stock.
Next to do is creating my “forgot” list, where I jot down the items I have missed. Tuesday, I will pick up a probe thermometer as mine broke a while back.
I have started the prep for my dinner. The smell of sweet roasted garlic, for the Mashed Potatoes
swirls around my home. The Tart Cranberry Dipping Sauce
is cooling on the counter. I am preparing to make my roux for the Apple Thyme Gravy
. I also have my pie crusts made.( Collapse )
