Let's talk menus!

This is how I'll make my favorite cranberry sauce tomorrow!

This year I'm home for Thanksgiving and doing all the cooking (with some help from Mike, of course). I spent tons of time going through magazines and cookbooks before finalizing my menu. I wanted to do this blog post this morning, but I had to get some work done, and then I spent 2 hours cooking! I'm proud to say I've made turkey stock for the gravy and stuffing and put together the dough for my pecan tart.

So if anyone else is taking a break from prepping for tomorrow, let's dish! What's on your menu? Have you gotten a jump on things, or will you rise early and cook up a storm? Are you trying some new recipes or sticking to old favorites...share!

Here is my menu, along with some links to recipes where available:

Brined Roast Turkey with Giblet Gravy

Oyster Stuffing with Turkey Stock

Cranberry Sauce with Pears, Ginger & Garam Masala

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Pecan Tart

I made a mini Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday - thyme and lemon roasted turkey, herb and cheese poppers, roasted veggies with pomegranate vinaigrette, mashed potatoes with crispy shallots, and caramel-pecan bars (to die for!!). Tonight I made an apple pie and started prepping some yams (mom's recipe) to bring to my boyfriend's parents' house for dinner tomorrow! Good luck with all of your cooking! Hope your turkey is delicious... I brined mine too, and it came out so moist and juicy!
