We are hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year! A smaller crowd than 2 years ago, but still about 12 people. Today I plan on starting some of the shopping, so I’m thinking about the menu. Of course, my guests (parents & in-laws) are all helping, but I’m doing the core. It’s kind of stressful, but I love it. And I get to use my new cookbook (a birthday gift): America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook
So here’s my menu:
- Brined Turkey
- Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
- Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole
- Green Bean Casserole
- All Purpose Gravy – (from my new cookbook)
oh.. and the day after my mom and I are making Lefse!!!
and the day after that, is Chad’s birthday and I have to make Banana Cream Supreme!
