My aunt and uncle are driving from Arizona for Thanksgiving so I invited everyone over to our new apartment for a family dinner next Wednesday. Coming up with a pre-Thanksgiving menu was kind of tough. I didn’t want to upstage the big day, and didn’t want to do the same dishes. But I want all the same ingredients like potatoes, herbs, wine—warm, comforting, hearty. That’s just the kind of foods I love this time of year.
So this is what I came up with:
I still have a week, so this could all change. And now that I’m looking at it all together, it might be good to add in something green. But overall I’m feeling good about our first dinner party at our new place. What could be better than family gathered around a table, sharing a meal? Doing it twice in the same week!
Are you guys cooking for Thanksgiving? What recipes are you using? Do you have any suggestions for my meal?
