T-Day plans I have a family dinner at 1, a friend's dinner at 3, and my own to make, probably in the next day or two. I found the cutest little 3 lb ham today, so I'm planning on scalloped potatoes and steamed broccoli for the meal. Chocolate cheese cake for a non-traditional dessert.
DD is smoking a turkey breast, I am cooking a whole turkey. Dressing, sweet potato casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, and rolls. I will be making pumpkin and pecan pies.
I am also going to make some fresh cranberry sauce(new recipe) and possibly a squash casserole, depending on time. I will also do that if we have a vegetarian family with us. Since they are lacto/ovarian, the squash will be squash, onion, carrots, cream of mushroom soup. sour cream, butter, and Stovetop blended till smooth. Top with additional stovetop and bake. Normally, I would use cream of chicken soup, but not this time.
Same as every year over here. Hubby fries a turkey and bakes a glazed ham. We have Cornbread dressing Broccoli cheese casserole Mashed potatoes Green been cass Side of green beans and bacon Sweet potato cass Yeast rolls and croissants Can of Cranberry sliced perfectly and chilled (lol, highlight of the meal) Pumpkin pie Pecan pie Iced tea I everything today and with the few items I already had at home- rice, potatoes, oil, and spices, my total comes to around 130$
@HillCountry : I'll be using Ocean Spray. I have made the whole berry sauce before, and cranberry relish(chopped cranberries, oranges, nuts, and a little sugar,) but I have not made the jelled sauce. I have also taken raspberry Jello, and added cranberry sauce, nuts, cream cheese and made a mold from it. So, this will be a first, and maybe a last. I have some OS in the pantry just in case.
