I am very excited to be cooking Thanksgiving dinner in my new kitchen. So you ask, “What are you cooking for Thanksgiving?” Obviously, you’ve noticed, I’ve got a lot of recipes that would be pretty darn delicious for Turkey Day. How do I whittle them down for the Nye Family Thanksgiving?
It’s a juggling act. When it comes to Thanksgiving, my family can be pretty traditional. I developed a somewhat eclectic (electric for my family) while I was in Switzerland. When I moved back to New Hampshire, I had to dial it back. Slowly but surely, I’ve add a new dish or two.
So – here’s what I’ll be cooking next Thursday!
Nibbles, spreads, dips, savory biscuits and appetizers
Dad will prepare his Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce. I think I’ll cook up a small wheel of Warm Brie with Cranberry Chutney or put together a display of my favorite cheeses and add a basket of my Cheesy Pumpkin-Sage Biscuits. And finally, I’ll roast up a batch of Rosemary Cashews.
I’ve already whipped up a batch of Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. I generally serve it in mugs towards the end of the cocktail hour.
I will be roasting a Turkey, stuffing it with Wild Rice & Mushroom Stuffing and serving it with Giblet Gravy and Cranberry Sauce.
For veggies and sides, I’ll be making Broccoli Purée, smashing up some Decadent Cheesy Potatoes and Savory Smashed Sweet Potatoes. As an updated homage to my mom, I may make my Roasted Mushrooms, Leeks, Shallots & Pearl Onions. (Mom always made creamed onions for Thanksgiving.)
My sister-in-law is bringing dessert so I’m off the hook. If I was going to bake, I would make my Pumpkin Cheesecake. If that wasn’t enough, I’d add my Rustic Apple Croustade.
And there you have it! My slowly evolving and changing Thanksgiving menu, version 2017.
Happy Thanksgiving from all the Nyes!
