Yesterday afternoon, shortly before heading into the university to teach for 3 hours, I found out we'd be eating spaghetti on Thanksgiving. Not turkey and stuffing, but noodles and sauce. I know. But my very pregnant sister-in-law is cringing at the thought of turkey, and craving marinara.
When I'm overwhelmed, I sleep. I went to bed last night at 7:50 PM.
It's now 4:00 AM and I'm up, ready to produce Thanksgiving. Here's the menu:
Turkey - I will do a fresh breast in a crockpot
Cranberry sauce - I like it with whole berries
Butternut squash casserole (got recipe from Williams & Sonoma)
Mashed potatoes and gravy
Sweet Potato casserole
Deviled eggs (as appetizer)
You see what's missing from this starch and carbfest? Yes, a green veggie. Can you help a girl out and offer me a good veggie recipe in the comments below? Maybe something with broccoli or green beans??
And, I want to be polite and recipe-reciprocal, so you can pop over to LeAnn Rice's She Cooks site today and get one of my family's favorite recipes: Glazed Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bread. Mmmmm.
