Thanksgiving Menu 2012

Our menu this year is pretty similar to last year’s, with a few changes.

Cranberry salad (my great-aunt and grandma’s recipe), which this year includes an apple from Seton Harvest and pecans from a friend’s pecan trees.

Layered salad, which this year includes baby spinach, leaf lettuce, and rosehearted radishes from Seton Harvest, topped with a dressing mixed of sour cream and ranch dressing.

Roasted turkey. with a couple of experiments this year. It’s rubbed with mayonnaise mixed with herbs and cooked in an electric roaster to make more room in the oven.

Dressing, my recipe is a mix of my childhood’s combined with a Paula Deen variety.


Mashed Potatoes – I always make 5 pounds of yukon gold potatoes, mixed with a stick of butter that’s melted in a can of evaporated milk.

Greens – a mix of collard greens and red swiss chard from Seton Harvest.

Sweet Potato Casserole

Corn Casserole – we have always had frozen corn from that year’s harvest. Until this year. So we opted to make a corn casserole instead.

Honey Wheat Rolls – with freshly ground wheat from Montana.

Pumpkin Cake

Cinnamon Roll Dutch Apple Pie – I just enjoyed this at Saint Meinrad’s and loved it so much I wanted it for Thanksgiving.

Southern Sweet Tea




Wow. It's Quiet Here...
