Thanksgiving Day Menu

The Food Whore doesn't do Thanksgiving dinner. I would love to cook all that delicious food, but I don't. Instead, Mama Food Whore does all the cooking and I just show up to eat. In honor of the impending Binge Fest '08, here's our Turkey Day menu:

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and Potato/Leek Soup
Served side by side & drizzled with tarragon oil

Roasted Turkey with Herbes de Provence & Citrus
Served with homemade pan gravy & bread stuffing

Tofurky Roast with Wild Rice Stuffing (for my sister, the Vegetarian)
Served with vegan gravy & bread stuffing

Cranberry Pear Relish & Cranberry Sauce

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Maple-Orange Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Toasted Pecans

Provencal Vegetable Gratin
Baked yellow squash, zucchini, & tomatoes, seasoned with basil, thyme, & parmesan

Corn Souffle

Pureed Roasted Butternut Squash

Green Beans Almandine

Savory Glazed Carrots

Dinner Rolls & French Bread

Apple Pie & Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Chocolate Pecan Pie & Chocolate-Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Double Layer Pumpkin Cream Pie

Kahlua Marbled Pumpkin cheesecake

Oh yeah, and lots and lots of wine. The Food Whore family is European and loves their wine : )

Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you all have a wonderful day of gorging yourselves on way too much food.
