A Few Recipes and a Thanksgiving Plea
It’s exactly a week until the big day. If you’re the person I aim to be, you already have your menu planned, your grocery lists made and a few trips to the store scheduled. If you are me, you’re only just now realizing that all of your grandiose ideas must now somehow come to fruition and land on an actual plate — meaning, you’re overwhelmed.
This year, my family is heading up to the city to spend Thanksgiving with my aunt, cousin and I. While our menu is still coming together, here are a few recipes that I think would be welcome at any Thanksgiving spread — and hopefully, if my cooking is deemed passable by my much more qualified mom and aunt, ours.
And a little something something for the morning after:
As for that plea — I have to work all day next Thursday, so I’m looking for desserts/sides/appetizers that can be made in advance. I should be able to cook Wednesday night, but would prefer to start “building components” throughout next week. Please save me from a night spent frantically in the kitchen and send me your no-doubt fabulous ideas!
