crewgrrl: (Cupcake)
Eaten by the family [ profile] crewgrrl (recipes linked when possible):

- Parker House Rolls*
- Stuffed mushrooms (half with a plain mushroom stuffing, half with a chicken sausage, spinach and mushroom stuffing)*
- Vaguely Asian salad (romaine lettuce, scallions, mandarin oranges and slivered almonds with sweet dressing)*
- Stuffing
- Cranberry Relish (the secret is Triple Sec)
- Cranberry sauce out of the can (it isn't Thanksgiving without this and gentile gravy)
- Brussels Sprout Hash with caramelized shallots*
- Turkey
- Gentile gravy (this is proper gravy, with turkey stock and pan juices and a roux and everything. Normally we just use pan juices and call that gravy)
- Mashed potatoes (with roasted garlic)
- Mashed sweet potatoes (with cinnamon and brown sugar)
- Dutch apple pie*
- Pumpkin pie*
- Chocolate mint cookies with white chocolate chips (also regular ones)*
- Whipped non-dairy sweetened chemical equivalent (as usual, we looked for it in a can and we didn't find it)

Mom's turkey is always amazing, potatoes were filled with starchy goodness. Taking raw chicken sausage out of the links and browning it for stuffing was a novel experience. Never having grown up eating sprouts of any kind, I am always amazed by how much I like the mini-cabbages. Also, I make amazing pie.

*Made entirely by me! Looking at this list, I made about half of Thanksgiving all by myself. Go me!
