In honor of a great-grandmother this year we'll add a cucumber-onion-tomato-vinegar salad to the traditional lineup. The best beloved dessert has become a bourbon pecan pie, though I was looking at the comments on one of the BPP recipes at Epicurious and someone said s/he used Grand Marnier instead of bourbon. This sounds interesting but maybe a little strong. Has anyone else tried this, with Grand Marnier? Gilding the lily?

Also, looking around at pies, this looks really good, though a little complicated - has anyone ever made one of these? With the double crust? I like the thought of the tart and sweet apples.

I use the Birds Eye frozen pearl onions (bags). Make a basic white sauce using white pepper-not black, and a little nutmeg. Add your onions. You could also put a little sage in.

You could do both. I always make a lot of stuffing and can't get even half of it into the turkey. The rest gets baked in a casserole dish.

Let guess you couldn't be Italian (lol) where do you find good bread in nc. I've had no luck so I started making my own. I'm having dinner at my house for my big Italian family I like your menu I'll be over your house I'm sure you won't even notice I'm there, if your family is anything like mine, huge!

Happy Thanksgiving

I found this recipe online today. I think that I will make it on Thursday. I love both Brussels sprouts and cauliflower.

Quote:
Roast Potatoes with Brussels sprouts and cauliflower

Serves 10

1 pound small red potatoes, cut in eighths
1 pound small Yukon Gold or Yellow Finn potatoes, cut in eighths
1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets
1 pound Brussels sprouts, split lengthwise
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

1. Set the oven at 425 degrees.
2. In a bowl, toss the red and yellow potatoes, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts with olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Spread the vegetables on a rimmed baking sheet in one layer.
3. Roast for 35 to 45 minutes, turning once, or until the vegetables are tender.

1966 lol you gave my secret away, yes I am Italian, self-published an Italian cookbook 2 years ago. If you live in North Carolina, you can find very good bread at "The Fresh Market". I can also assume that Whole Foods would have decent bread. We had been getting Anthony's Italian bread imported from NJ in Lowes Foods and were told yesterday by the store manager that they are no longer getting the bread because none of their Artesian breads were selling. My husband was so angry at the explanation he said, "so you stopped selling the bread because it was selling, what does that tell you, well we won't be shopping here anymore, we can get whatever we want at "Fresh Market".
I am very tired from prepping all of the vegetables today, but they are all done and in the food saver bags in the fridge. Tomorrow the cleaning gets done and then off into Wednesday.
You may come here and I will notice you.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
