Welcome home Kanyon71! Where abouts are you at? I am in the Metro Detroit area. Maybe I'll come and check out your tasty dinner!
Just Mom and me this year, with my dad having passed. And mom is going in for an emergency hip replacement this week so honestly -- no thanksgiving at my house this year (again). When mom is out of rehab and we are stuck at home for those first couple of weeks of recovery then I will cook the 15lb hen turkey that has been sitting in my freezer all year. (Yeah, I know 15 lbs for only 2 people! But in my defense, buying the whole darn bird was cheaper then just buying a turkey breast!!) The menu is simple for us.
Turkey with sausage stuffing (grandma's recipe of course.)
Those to die for crock pot loaded mashed potatoes
Candied sweet potatoes (already made from locally grown sweet potatoes and in the freezer.)
Canned whole cranberry sauce (because mom can't stand up to make her homemade cranberry sauce this year)
One of those Marie Calendar Chocolate silk pies
And time to break into the holiday liqueurs I made over the summer...raspberry, blackberry and cherry bounce. YUMMMMM!
Eh! Who needs to eat!.....maybe we'll just jump straight to the after dinner liqueurs......
