@kellyk1214:  yum, can I join? I’ve never heard of prosciutto and sage stuffing but sounds delicious! We go to my FIL’s for Thanksgiving so I don’t get to host and menu plan, but I am contributing a cranberry apple pie this year!

Since thanksgiving is about 350 days away, yes it is too early 😛

oo some good ideas on here


in other news– this is our first holiday season at our new house and we invited all the family over for Christmas— MIL has already announced the entire menu to be served at our meal (“asian” theme– which, I mean, I love asian food, but  I want some ham or turkey on thanksgiving, not fish and soy sauce). WTF WTF. ugh.. woman has no sense of boundaries.

That looks great, but for me it’s not thanksgiving without mashed potatoes.

@kellyk1214:  Looks yummy.  I am pretty sure we will be going to MILs house for thanksgiving since DH probably cant take the next friday off which means we have to stay pretty local.  But we are having everyone at our house for Christmas so I will probably steal some of these ideas!!

Ohh this thread is exciting. This will be my first time cooking thanksgiving dinner. DH and I wont be able to visit family so it will just be us two, but I still want to make it special. Your menu looks amazing!

You know what? It sounds delicious – Thanksgiving or not. I wouldn’t worry about it being kind of “festive” as a menu. People will like it regardless. I’d eat it! 😀

@kellyk1214:  Your menu sounds amazing! And you sound like quite a host!

It’s my turn to host a dinner club soon, and since it will be in between (Canadian) thanksgiving and Christmas, I was thinking of doing a holday-inspired meal… something along the lines of:

Some sort of salad to start

Turkey scallopini stuffed with craberry sauce, goat cheese and rosemary

proscuitto, pear and hazelnut stuffing

herb and garlic mashed potatoes

maple butternut squash risotto with bacon (holy carbs)

green beans with slivered almonds

glazed carrots

Dessert: pumpkin bread pudding and/or egg nog cheesecake bars

The only two things I must have at Thanksgiving are green bean casserole and collard greens slow cooked with a ham hock and brown sugar until they are literally melt in your mouth tender. That and some cornbread is a meal alone. (Is it glaringly obvious I’m a Southerner yet?)
