Our Thanksgiving Menu 2013

Ok I’ve been talking a LOT about Thanksgiving these last couple of weeks. I thought I’d share with you guys what our final menu is looking like. It’s got all the classics and a few extras just for fun. Our plan is to eat around 2pm and then have dessert, coffee, and leftovers later in the evening.

For beverages, I’m doing champagne, red wine, and a selection of beers. Oh and something for the people who aren’t drinking. In our family, that just means the kids under 21… So I still need to figure that out.

Deviled Eggs

For appetizers, I’m keeping it simple. Don’t want people filling up on food before the main event. Hubby loves, deviled eggs, so we’ll just be having those.

Homemade Green Bean Casserole

For the meal, we’re doing the following:
Rolls from the Beef House in Indiana
Seven Layer Salad
Brined and Roasted Turkey
Fig and Port Cranberry Sauce
Sausage, Kale, and Butternut Squash Stuffing
Chipotle Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Turnip Puff
Homemade Green Bean Casserole
Homemade Gravy (made by Hubby’s step-father)
Crockpot Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Mustard Maple Brussels Sprouts

Pecan Pie Cookies

And for dessert, I’m still finalizing things, but these are definitely on the menu
Depths of Fall Pie
Chocolate Mousse
Pecan Pie Cookies
Pumpkin Cranberry Pecan Upside Down Cake
Pumpkin Pie (again, by Hubby’s step-father)
Freshly whipped cream
A variety of homemade ice creams, still TBD

I’d love to hear what you’re making for Thanksgiving. Especially when it comes to desserts. I’m definitely not afraid to try new desserts and some of the desserts I have planned are negotiable (others are not!)

    I actually did make chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving… and quite a boozy one too! I think these pecan pie brownies would have gone over well. I’ll keep them in mind for next year!

      Boozy definitely means better in my mind!

    These are in the oven now. I can’t wait to try them! Confession – I don’t think I can wait for them to cool overnight before I have a taste.

    I found that baking the brownies for only 10 minutes before adding the rest was not long enough. The pecan pie topping fell right into the brownie batter and 55 minutes later,and what is left on the top is hard as a rock and the brownie still gooey and a little runny. I won’t be able to cut into squares but it still tastes good so I will chop it all together and we can eat with it a spoon and some ice cream.

      Bummer that they didn’t bake all the way through for you. Although underbaked brownies are one of my favorite desserts ever! Glad you still enjoyed them.
