Happy Thanksgiving!

I am taking the week off (from blogging, not cooking of course) to be with family. Since I tend to blog about food after I have made it, I will give you a full run down of this week's sights and flavors next week. For now I will send you away with my menu for the big day and links to recipes where available. Happy eating!

Thanksgiving Menu 2010
Nancy's cheese ball
Herb-seasoned brined turkey courtesy of Emeril Legasse
Garlic Mashed Potatoes and gravy
Classic Green Bean Casserole
Lion House Rolls
Classic Sweet Potato Casserole
Stove Top Deluxe (yup, from the box with a little something extra added)
Cranberry Sauce
Pumpkin Cheesecake this one's from Paula Deen, but I plan on using a Gingersnap crust
Apple Pie
Mile High Lemon Meringue Pie from America's Test Kitchen, my favorite show!

I might add in a salad. But let's face it, no one goes into Thanksgiving dinner saying "I can't wait for the salad!" So I'll probably ditch it. What are your Thanksgiving favorites?

I am happy to report that I used your wheat roll recipe on Thanksgiving and they were a hit! Also, you gave me the courage to roast my first chicken and I did not regret it. Then I made your tortilla soup with the leftovers and that was also a keeper. Basically I love that you're doing this!

Hey, Julie! Your menu looks fantastic! I did the exact same thing with the cheesecake: Paula's recipe but with a gingersnap crust. It was to die for! :-)

Ness, I'm glad everything turned out. Miss you!

Heather, I love pumpkin cheesecake. That's so funny we chose the same recipe. Can't go wrong with Paula!
