Planned Thanksgiving Menu Contributions from Yours Truly and Husband

Fall in Seattle - View from our Hotel last week. 

Cabbage Roses at Pike Place Market

Since I'm starting my cooking and prep today, I thought I'd share...
  • Turkey: Ryan (and others willing to help). He's trying out a method in the most recent Cook's Illustrated mag - braised.
  • Rolls: Ryan & Kylie. We're the bread people, and we like to make bread-y things.  We're making some Rustic rolls and some classic American dinner rolls.  Both of these recipes also from Cook's Illustrated.
  • Sweet Potato Pie: Ryan.  I requested a spin on traditional sweet potatoes, and he found this option. :)
  • Layered Jell-O: Kylie.  Last Christmas I made a rainbow layered-Jell-O.  It was pretty awesome.  For Thursday I'm making a layered Jell-O with reds, purples, and blue.
  • Yum-Yum Bacon: Kylie.  Bacon slices with mustard and brown sugar.  A bite of happiness.  These were served at my wedding reception. 
  • Zippy Italian Popcorn: Kylie.  We need a pre-dinner snack, right?
  • White Chocolate Popcorn: Kylie.  Because I want to eat some, and I'm pretty sure others will, too.  
If successful, I'll supply recipes (and hopefully a photo or two) after the feast.  Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Just to let you know... I commented last week on this blog and it didn't show up. I can't remember what I said, but I'm sure it was incredibly witty :) Can't wait to see you at xmas (maybe) !!
