Thanksgiving Dinner Planning

Next week we are hosting Thanksgiving for the very first time and I am excited to finally get a chance to try my hand at turkey and all the fix-ins.  I am thankful to have the guidance of my Mother-in-Law, a veteran holiday chef, and we are currently in the process of planning the menu and holding dessert negotiations ;)

Here's the menu so far:
  • Sausage Pinwheel Appetizers
  • "World's Greatest Turkey" stuffed with Apples & Roasted in Champagne coated with Garlic & Savory Herbs
  • Country Cornbread Stuffing with Sauteed Onions
  • Scratch Turkey Gravy (A given!)
  • Mashed Russet Potatoes
  • Classic Green Bean Casserole with French's Fried Onion Topping
  • Fresh Stove-top Cranberry sauce
  • Desserts TBD (this chef has a vote out for Bourbon Pecan Pie)
Can't wait for all this goodness!  Recipes and photos coming soon...
