The holidays have begun! And so has the excuse to cook to your little heart’s desire. I am making my very first Thanksgiving dinner this year and am very excited. My sister is the only one (that I currently know of) who will be subjected to it, but I still find it exciting to be doing it myself this year.
I’ve come up with a delectible menu which includes:
- Green Bean Casserole
- Fresh Mashed Potatoes
- Turkey with a garlic basil butter sauce
- Pumpkin Pie
- Apple Pie
- Sam Adams Cherry Wheat
Now I know you’re thinking “What about stuffing?!” And I have a answer for you. My sister is in charge of the suffing. She has been for the last 8 years or so. I will give up that part of my first Thanksgiving dinner to carry on the tradition.
The one part of all my previous Thanksgivings I will not be carrying on is forced immediate cleanup of dinner. This ruins it! I cannot wait to just sit on my couch and relax after the feast. The dishes can wait.
