I know. I usually post well in advance of late afternoon day of a post. And I’ve meant to post this post for a while now.
Canadian Thanksgiving is Monday. Yikes! I still have so much to do, and, until last week (late last week), I had not fully decided on a menu.
That’s scary, folks. I usually have the rest of the year’s celebrations (plus holiday “goodie” cooking planned by this time).
I blame Muffin being in kindergarten. Anyone who is around me all the time has heard that lament lately.
Anyway, here is the much vaunted menu. Long-time readers will recognize some of the offerings from holidays past:
Pioneer Woman Make-Ahead mashed potatoes with gravy
Stuffing (White-Bread, Josh’s Mom’s recipe)
Cranberry sauce (yes, the jiggly kind in the can…gloop!)
Ligonberry preserves (yay, Ikea!)
broccoli/cauliflower with cheese sauce (Josh’s mom’s recipe)
Pumpkin pie with whipping cream (The only part of this I’m doing anything to is the whipped cream. I refuse to make pumpkin pie.)
Relish tray and dip
Green Bean Casserole
Brown and Serve Rolls and Artisan Bread
Pioneer Woman’s Red Velvet Sheet Cake with Ermine Frosting
I decided to divide the workload up. I plan to shop tomorrow evening, and do some cooking Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Cranberry Relish (because it has to sit and mellow for fun)
Green Bean Casserole (I’m cheating and doing the chinzy cream of mushroom soup one)
Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes
Relish Tray prep
Tea (Josh will make Saturday night)
Broccoli/cauliflower with cheese sauce
whipped cream for pumpkin pie
