My brother's not coming so less vegetable sides ...

Thanksgiving dinner
  • Pickly carrots & chex mix
  • Turkey with chestnut bread stuffing (cubed up bread from the freezer - rosemary foucaccia, sourdough, and crumbled cornbread, herbs, celery, onions)
  • Cranberry sauce, plain & one with pearl onions, cinamon stick, lemon peel, currants, ginger
  • Chiles stuffed w/mashed potatoes
  • Brulee'd sweet potatoes with chipotle chile and lime
  • Broccoli and Romesco broccoli with olive oil, garlic, pepper flakes & sun-dried tomatoes
  • Green bean casserole with real mushroom sauce and crispy shallots
  • Deena's mashed potatoes
  • Gravy
  • Waldorf salad with celeriac yielding to implacable brotherly pressure, this will be replaced with fennel-celeriac gratin
  • some other salad, if someone brings it
  • Twofer pie (pumpkin on the bottom, pecan on top)
  • Pumpkin mousse
  • Mark's apple pie
  • Strawberry-rhubarb pie (maybe)

Huh, I just went back to add the caveat, "my brother's not coming" and already the gripes ...
