The traditional fare- roast turkey-bird, stuffing(my favorite!) smashed taters, cheesy hashbrown casserole, green bean casserole, cranberries, dinner rolls, apple pie for dessert (don't forget the ice cream!) I'll be tied to the stove all day. Yup- I'm the family cook-SWMBO hates it. Oh and the beer will have to be commercial because both of my kegs spit up on me last night during the Marquette-Duke game and the new kegs won't be carbed in time
Happy Turkey Day all! (Belated to our friends from the Great White Nort)

Grilled turkey (brining as we speak), stuffing in the slow cooker this time, baked blue Hubbard squash, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry-orange-walnut relish, homemade sourdough rye bread, pumpkin pie, apple cranberry pie, pecan pie, and apple-rice custard pudding with meringue.

appetizers are: marinated cubed cheese with smoked pastrami, and crackers, with taco dip for the kids.

Many homebrews are chilling and the wine list is: blackberry, dandelion, and/or rhubarb. After dinner is ancient orange mead.

It's a pretty traditional menu, except for grilling the turkey this year.

Happy Thanksgiving all-

Lorena

Happy Thanks Giving all. We are headed to my mom's house, she has enough food for fourteen and there will only be the 5 of us this year. Guess I will have to really hurt myself by overindulging this year.
Here is to hoping that you all enjoy your holiday, you all overeat and you do not fart to much after the belly bombing.
Seriously though, I hope that you all have a blessed holiday, be safe.

This is my variation on a recipe I found for Outback Steakhouse's Bushman Bread. It's a big bread machine recipe, but you could just as easily adapt it to standard bread making techniques. Makes about 3 lbs of bread (I pull the top 1/4 to 1/3 of it off as it rises out of my bread machine and bake that in the oven. You could avoid having to do that by cutting the recipe by 1/3 or using a bigger machine than my 2 lb model). It's great bread when made with water - I'm substituting beer for the first time tonight.

12 oz warm, flat beer (full flavored, lightly hopped)
2 Tbsp softened butter
1/2 cup honey
2 cups bread flour
1 2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp instant coffee (optional)
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 Tsp yeast
Dust with cornmeal before baking

I'm having Thanksgiving at my local VFW Post. I will be on the serving line for about 2 hours and clean up detail afterwards. I am privileged to associate with other vets, especially those that are homeless and alone.
