Who is excited about Thanksgiving?! I can.not.wait. to cook all day and eat all night. I've been building up excitement for a couple of weeks now. A couple neighbors and I are doing another traditional "orphan" holiday celebration - it's those of us who have far-away families and are staying in town for the holiday. No matter the size of the gathering, I am ready and waiting to prepare lots of tasty food, much of which I always enjoyed with my family during holiday meals.
Here are my contributions on the menu:
*Roast turkey breast - coated in butter with freshly minced garlic (it's 4.5 pounds, and since there are only 3 of us, there's no need for an entire turkey)
*Sweet potato biscuits (one famous Thanksgiving, I ate 15 of these...)
*Steamed asparagus with cheese sauce
*Pumpkin roll (a delicious dessert my college roomie got me hooked on!)
*Pumpkin pie with a cinnamon graham cracker crust
We will also be having garlic and rosemary mashed potatoes as well as sweet potatoes.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
