I’m pulling together my menu for the holiday. Normally I would have done this last week, but I’ve actually been writing, so I’m a bit behind. That’s okay though since it’s just the three of us. I’m thinking about just getting a breast, or maybe two breasts. Of course, Whit won’t like that because he’s very fond of leftovers. Last time I scored a really small turkey he was unhappy because there wasn’t enough leftovers for sandwiches. Of course, there is also the issue of gravy. With a breast there would definitely be none. So, I guess that nips the notion of a breast in the bud right there. We will definitely be brining that bird, it does amazing things for it.
Turkey (fresh, hope I can score a free-range at this late date)
Cornbread Dressing (I’ll post my recipe after I make it. It’s a cathartic experience and I literally have to channel my mama to pull this one off successfully.)
Rice (There are potato folk, and rice folk. We’re definitely rice folk, especially with giblet gravy.)
Green Beans Almondine
Crescent Rolls (The one day a year I bake bread. Not my strong suit, my sister inherited the breadmaking gene, but they love it.)
What’s cooking at your house?
