Have you started planning your Thanksgiving dinner yet? The hubby and I did our shopping today and our menu looks a lot like last years. Here is what is on our menu:
Roasted Turkey Breast
This is the hubby's domain. It's pretty basic, but always delicious.
I'm going to attempt this with bacon grease. We'll see how that goes. I bought a jar of gravy as a backup.
Made with Sweet Corn bread and homemade white bread. The hubby made the white bread tonight and I'll make the cornbread tomorrow night so that we can cube them and let them go properly stale.
Green Beans and Cherry Tomatoes with a Basil Butter Sauce
We have green beans from our CSA blanched and frozen and a basil plant going gangbusters. This is a match made in heaven.
After growing up with the canned jelly, the fresh sauce is always a tart treat and I love the chunky texture.
Also the hubby's homemade creation. I need to get his recipe posted up here so you all can share in the deliciousness.
Apple Pie with Buttermilk Crust
Every year I ask what kind of pie we should make and every year the hubby answers "Apple". This year we are trying a recipe from Joy the Baker and planning to top it with homemade whipped cream.
We're having a friend over and after dinner we'll have sparkling cider and hot cocoa for hanging out by the fireplace. Sounds like a blissful day.
