Gobble Gobble!

It's turkey day! And it's my first one with shmoo. He has to work today but I'll have a nice dinner waiting for him when he gets home. On the menu for today is turkey (of course), brocoli cheese casserole, sweet potato soufle, stuffing, cranberry sauce, cornbread muffins (with corn added, and maybe some banana peppers too, since I have no fresh jalapenos to add), and key lime pie for desert. We will be eating leftovers for eons!

Also, the soup turned out really well. It ended up being more of a creamy spinach chirozo soup, with potatos, onions, leeks, and artichoke added, but it was still very yum. Very filling too. I froze most of it because of the coming onslaught of Thanksgiving leftovers, but I did send some to work with shmoo as well.

Also, for those of you who make biscuits from scratch. Try coconut oil instead of crisco or lard. It's way way lighter and you still get a lovely biscuit.

I haven't finished my scarf, or adding to shmoo's green knit hat, perhaps today.....

Your menu sounds great...I'm caught up in cooking today, too. I'm going to have nightmares about pecan halves for weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Sounds like a lovely meal. I'm sure Shmoo will think he is in T-day heaven. Happy Thanksgiving!

He was, he said my sweet potatoe soufle was better than Boston Market's. Poor starving boy, he ate two plates!
