Recipes have been read, lists have been made and the planning of our Thanksgiving meal is well underway. I’m still undecided about the pies. I am definitely making an apple pie, but I have been craving a pumpkin pie too, so I may make both!
One thing I am planning is our family’s traditional Chestnut Stuffing! Oh how I live for that! I’m not sure I mentioned that a couple of weeks ago I bought a few chestnuts, roasted them in the oven and just ate them. Oh my, they are so good!
I’m also going to make fresh cranberry relish this year. A friend gave me a recipe and will be making that.
Also on our menu will be mashed Yukon Gold potatoes, mashed candied butternut squash, peas, gravy, bread and butter pickles, and some sort of table bread or rolls.
I love cooking and baking and I’m looking forward to doing all of this. Thanksgiving is my favorite meal of the year!
In fact the family legend is that I was born a week early just so I could get my turkey dinner!
That sure sounds like me!
