Only a couple more days! We are very excited this year because both of our families are coming to our house! It will be so nice and relaxing. Here is what I have been dreaming up for my pretty traditional menu with a little bit of my own touch :)
Breakfast: Kolache factory - yum!!! Corey's parents are picking up some of these wonderful treats. We are also having some pumpkin bread courtesy of my sister and some fruit provided by my mom.
Apps: Baked Brie w/ Cranberry Sauce
Braided Pretzel Loaf & some crackers I have yet to purchase for the Brie
Dinner: Turkey - Corey's parents are making a deep fried turkey this year which is going to be a first for all of us and I think it will be a lot of fun!
Red Skinned Mashed Potatos with Corey's dad's homemade Gravy
Noodles - My mom and sis are in charge of these! They are my grandmother's recipe. I have so many fun memories of rolling these out on the table when we were all younger. Such great tradition.
Apple Walnut Stuffing - I made a trial run of this last night and it got the hubby's approval! I'm not a big fan of stuffing but this wasn't too bad. I added some dried cranberries and sausage. My mom is also going to make a stuffing.
Green Beans w/ Feta & Almonds
Glazed Carrots w/ Honey & Red Pepper Flakes
Rolls - these are coming from the Kolache factory as well, yum!
Homemade Roasted Applesauce
Pumpkin Sweet Potato Casserole
Creamed Spinage - Corey's mom is picking this up from Boston Market. It is Corey's absolute favorite!
Dessert: Pumpkin Pie w/ Whipped Cream
Pecan Pie - made by Corey's mom
Apple Pie - made by Corey's mom Along with some Blue Bell icecream (have you had this it is a-mazing!!!)
Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Cheesecake
What do you think...I think we should be fat and sassy after this dinner! I am probably leaving something out too that is the sad part. I think its a little obvious that I am pretty excited. Corey has had to calm me down a few times and hold me back from adding more things to the menu...(but honey what if I made some jalopeno cheese grits for breakfast or a fruit tart as well!!!??) Ok, Ok, I guess I do want to be able to relax and enjoy the holiday too. But I am really looking forward to having a whole day of cooking :)
OH we have SO much to be THANKFUL for!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Lord!
I'll be back to share recipes hopefully later today or tomorrow.
