I've started planning my Thanksgiving Day menu.
Early this morning, I was digging through my stack of favorite recipes, looking for just the right ones.
I usually get out a manila folder and write the menu on the front of the folder and put the recipes I'm going to use in the folder. It helps me stay organized.
I make my pies and quick bread the day before as a prelude to the big event. I usually put on some festive Christmas music and get an early start. And while the pies are baking, I'll throw together the cheese ball. I can tell you my dishwasher gets a workout on pre-turkey day.
Thanksgiving Dinner Menu
Ole Tom Turkey
Mom's Pecan Dressing
Sweet Potato Casserole
Green Beans w/Almonds
Salad (I haven't decided on this yet)
Toll house pie
Cheese ball & Crackers
I'm looking forward to all the festivities. My sister and her family will be over for dinner. Then we'll relax in the family room with desserts and a game (or two or three) of Catch Phrase. I imagine the boys will run around like wild critters and have a blast.
What's your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
