What's for Thanksgiving Dinner?

Hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is next Thursday. How did that happen? And, as usual, the Christmas holidays are sneaking up far too quickly. I've already seen two houses with Christmas trees displayed in their front windows, and as I was driving into work this morning, the downtown tree lot was setting up shop. Holy cow.

So, before we jump straight into the Christmas frenzy, let's savor next week's holiday and all it has to offer. It's a time to reflect on the year and give thanks for our many blessings. And, it's a time to eat ourselves into a food coma. Woo hoo!

So, dear friends in blog land, what are you doing this Thanksgiving? And, what is your favorite Thanksgiving dish? My favorite dish is my husband's oyster stuffing - delicious! But, this year we won't be cooking. Instead, we're dining at Churchill Downs and watching the races with members of our family. Churchill does an amazing Thanksgiving feast so we're going to dine on good food and then enjoy betting on the ponies. Hey, it's Kentucky. That's what many of us do. ;)

Going to get out some of my Thanksgiving serving pieces..I like looking at them on my farm table and thinking about the day..

Hmm. Right now my favorite dish is creamed onions. Get a bag of pearl onions, boil them briefly, peel. Put into a baking dish. Make a cream sauce from a roux, with lots of nutmeg. Salt and pepper the onions. Pour sauce over. Bake at 350 until bubbling and brown. Yum.

Nice post:) My fave dish has got to be my mum's oven baked sweet patotoes with rosemary...and because it happens in France for me and my family, the ingredients are all so amazingly rich in flavour! I love thanksgiving, it's my most favourite holiday ever! x LZ
