Well, the windows are in and the crew is working on the trim. My sense is that the trim has to be painted. That is not going to happen before Thanksgiving I fear. The guys hands are dirty and it rubs off on to the frame. Ugh. Another chore to be done before we gather to gather.

The cornbread (for dressing) is made and I think the shopping is done. Later today I’ll begin the pies–pumpkin and pecan and may do something frozen which the kids always like. Generally a very traditional feast is planned.

The menu:

  • Turkey about 25 lbs, plenty for 10, plus leftovers!
  • Cornbread dressing-my Mother’s recipe (in other words, no recipe!)
  • Yams, sliced and roasted
  • Roasted Italian (flat) Green beans with mushroom glaze
  • Mashed potatoes with parsnip/horseradish
  • Homemade turkey gravy
  • Citrus/pear/pecan/spinach salad
  • Pecan and pumpkin, traditional
  • Appetizers: Dips/crackers or chips/bread sticks; picked okra, olives, tapenades
  • Drinks: assortment of wine, lemonade, teas, etc.

Now, I’m hungry! Lots more work to do but it will be worth it!

Note to self–need more baggies!
