In the Kitchen, Planning

>T – 3 days

>I spent yesterday preparing for Thanksgiving. I normally would have done this a couple weeks ago, but we’re having a small meal this year- just us and a friend or two. I’m still making a very large bird but that’s because I’m going to visit my family between the holidays and I need to have the freezer meals to feed my husband so he’s not tempted to destroy my kitchen. Plus, turkey is a favorite of his and I don’t especially care for it, so when I do make it I usually make a lot.

The end result of my day of planning is:

Munchies:
Tomato Bisque (made ahead)
Homemade Carmelized Onion Dip and Chip (made ahead)
Cheesey Stuffed Mushrooms

Main:
Brined Herb Crusted Turkey and Apple Cider Gravy gravy

Starches:
Baked Mashed Potatoes with Parmesan Crust (mixed ahead, baked day of)
Potato and Cheddar Biscuits
Apple and Sausage Stuffing
Cranberry Sauce

Veggies:
Homemade green bean casserole
Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta

Dessert:
Pumpkin Beignets
Chocolate Cream Pie
maybe a little apple tart for me
