It’s just a traditional Thanksgiving menu for us:
- Roasted Turkey
- Baked Ham
- Giblet Gravy
- Mashed Potatoes
- Sweet Potato Casserole
- Green Bean Bundles
- Cornbread Dressing
- Watergate Salad
- Cranberry Sauce
- Pumpkin Pie
- Chocolate Meringue Pie
- Whipped Cream
There will be 7 of us and I’m hoping for lots of leftovers!
The turkey is in the fridge defrosting. Here’s my plans for getting things done:
Sunday: Bake the biscuits (done!)
Monday: Bake the cornbread.
Wednesday: Make the pies. Bake the sweet potatoes. Steam the green beans and assemble the bundles. Put the turkey in the brine. Saute the celery and onions for the dressing. Boil the giblets.
Thursday – the big day! Roast the turkey, bake the ham, bake the green bean bundles, the sweet potato casserole, make the rolls and bake them. Make the giblet gravy. Make the mashed potatoes.
I think that’s it!
I’m thinking I should have room in the wall oven to bake the turkey and one side dish – either the green beans or the sweet potatoes. In the regular oven, I’ll bake the ham and the other side dish. I should have room in there to move the ham over and bake the rolls or I can take the ham out, tent it with foil, and bake the rolls.
It’s holidays when I’m very thankful for having two oven!
Anything I’m missing??
