Turkey Turkey Turkey.

I've written before about favourite holiday foods and my attempts to replicate them. This weekend will be my first stab at a turkey. Shannen's turkeyed before, and there have been turkeys cooked in our house by others, but this is my first crack at a gobbler. I'm excited! To whet your appetites for the weekend, side dishes on the menu chez Fullerton:
  • Cranberries, both jellied and loose.
  • Sweet potato casserole with marshmallows on top.
  • Mashed potatos.
  • Turnip (for Shannen, who loves turnip).
  • OAFE award winner: Farm Boy Pumpkin Pecan Pie.
  • Oriental cabbage salad.
  • Dinner rolls.
Mmmm ... is 10:30 too early for lunch? I'm hungry ... Football picks for the weekend: MIN, NE, NO, WAS, CAR, CHI, STL, IND, SF, NYJ, KC, DAL, SD, BAL.

Shannen - I do love turnips. More than one should love turnips.

And the absolute best part of Thanksgiving? Leftovers!

Heather - That’s a delicious sounding line up you’ve got going on there (the food, not the football).
I heart sweet potato casserole with marshmallows. I think I might have to start making it myself, to contribute something to the family dinner, now that I am a wifey.

forgetful.ca » Indian Summer - […] Sunday was all about food.  My dad and brother joined Dan and I for the feast described in the last post.  We spent most of the day preparing, sneaking bites of, and enjoying the endless deliciousness.  The only addition was this sweet and sour crunchy cabbage salad that one of his aunts is famous for.  It was easily my third favourite dish at the table.  Or fourth.  Quite frankly, the only disaster was the gravy, but if you closed your eyes hard enough, you’d never know how repulsive it looked.  […]

Sonja - Wait a minute! No stuffing?

dan - Stop the presses! We discovered a sweet potato topping that blows marshmallows out of the water. Brown sugar, flour and walnuts (or pecans), kinda like an apple crisp topping.  Ta-stee!

Sonja: We did forget stuffing. Our Stove Top Stuffing pales in comparison to the Harrington concoction. But it is definitely a favourite.
