Min's Thanksgiving Menu, 2008

Hors d'Oeuvres:

Homemade Boursin*

Chicken Liver Pâté*

Festive Holiday Ham & Cheese Ball

Crackers and Baguette

Tortilla Chips and Roasted Salsa

Relish Tray: a variety of pickles and olives

Main & Sides:


Maple Pecan Pie

Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Classic Greenmarket Apple Pie
-at the last minute, we decided not to make this pie.
We simply ran out of time...but we had more than enough desserts!

Maple Walnut Pie*

Pear Pie

Pumpkin Cheesecake with Ginger Cream Topping*


A variety of wines

Rum drinks



* indicates a new recipe we've never tried before...I'm not afraid!


We are so excited for our Thanksgiving celebration this year! Our little family of four will be joined by Number One's mom, my dear friend from the stone age (preschool through high school), and some of our "town" friends including three (possibly four) adults and two kids in addition to ours. A total of 7 or 8 adults and 4 kids.

We are transforming our shell-of-an-addition into our Candlelit Feasting Area...follow the link for pictures! Of course I am making the majority of the dishes ahead of time (as if you didn't already guess!) I have delegated the salad, some of the appetizers and the green beans.

Sunday: mix pie crusts
Monday: make pate'; prepare extra gravy
Tuesday: prep some ingredients for Wednesday (possibly make a pie or cheesecake)
Wednesday: mix Boursin, make potatoes; assemble dressing; and PIES.
Thursday: Turkey; heat potatoes, dressing, gravy; bake rolls.
