Turkey Day A Week Away

Howdy! My workhorse of a five-year-old laptop bit the dust last weekend. It's where I did all my writing and editing work. A Lenovo Twist (squee!) is on order to replace it but in the meantime, blogging on shared family computers is a little difficult. In the meantime, a few thoughts on the upcoming holiday.

Thanksgiving Day is a week away. We are hosting this year. I can't wait to fill our spacious new house with family and food!

Our Turkey Day menu will include many of these tried and true favorites of my family:

Brined Roasted Turkey (don't forget to save the bones for turkey stock)

Maple Vinegar Sweet Potatoes and Kale

Parsnip Fries

Apple Fennel Slaw

Cranberry Sauce (make extra to can!)

Cranberry Bread

Pie with Sassafras Crumble Topping


What are your Thanksgiving plans? What will you contribute to the feast?
