Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving week!

We’ve been in a mad rush this weekend to get our house ready for guests, but are finally sitting down with a glass of wine for a little quiet time before all the prepping & cooking begins!

We’re going fantastically nontraditional this year, ditching the turkey completely in favor of Thomas Keller’s ad hoc fried chicken.  If there are any leftovers, they’ll be put to good use as chicken & waffles!

Our favorite Balsamic Braised Brussels Sprouts will be making an appearance.

As well as some version of crispy parmesan potatoes.

& Crack Pie for dessert.

    After spending my college Thanksgivings in California away from home eating strange foods, I am firmly in the traditional Thanksgiving meal camp. Meal plan:

    – brined turkey – I use the Williams Sonoma brine mix after trying my own and other recipes.
    – mashed potatoes and gravy (Alex request)
    – Cook’s Illustrated green bean casserole, MY FAVORITE. Fresh green beans, homemade mushroom cream sauce. This will be on my 40th birthday menu.
    – Pioneer Woman sausage and apple stuffing (Jon request)
    – Paula Deen’s corn casserole (Jon request)
    – Kraft mac and cheese (Nate request)
    – Angus Barn’s chocolate chess pie
    – leftover Halloween candy for the kids that hate pie (all of them)

    Happy Thanksgiving!!
