With Thanksgiving but a Week Away…

In General Articles, Recipes, Thanksgiving on November 15, 2012 at 10:01 AM

…if, you are still planning your Thanksgiving menu, perhaps we can be of assistance. Last year we posted our traditional family Thanksgiving recipes; here we link them in this update, which we hope that you will find helpful.

Ready and Waiting for the Carving Knife

This year, as our long-time close friends, Marge & Dan, as well as their 3 children and their families will be joining us, we will have 22 at table. Accordingly, we will be doubling up on the Roast Stuffed Turkey with Dorothea’s Italian Sausage and Mushroom Stuffing, and tripling up on the sides of Fresh Cranberry Sauce, Bourbon Sweet Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts Roasted with Hazelnuts.

In addition to sharing this special meal with special friends, we will enjoy the added bonus of a double quantity of Turkey Soup after the feast is but a happy memory.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our subscribers and readers!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Your feast was elegantly delicious! Everything sounds wonderful. I love those bourbon sweet potatoes!!

  2. Thank you so much for this wonderful post. Thanksgiving is not a holiday in Italy and this year I’ll host dinner. Of course, I’m panicking but your post makes me feel much better. Thank you for sharing. By the way, do you have an email address where I can reach you?

    Here’s a post that we did for Thanksgiving two years ago. The menu will be repeated this year, with one substitution, https://theliteratechef.com/2014/11/15/crispy-brussels-sprouts-glazed-with-pomegranate-molasses-hazelnuts/. If you are a last minute planner, hopefully some of these suggestions might appeal to you and be on your table as well. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our subscribers and friends.
