This is how we eat: BIG

We had another entertaining Thanksgiving. Lots of friends and family and big eating. People left slightly in pain from eating too much and with plenty of leftovers. We keep slowly bringing more people to the table each year. I suspect next year we may end up with a kiddie table or something. We will definitely need more chairs.

Anyways here is this year's menu. (it doesn't really change all that much)

Turkey
Peace-maker stuffing & my Mom's amazing gravy (she does fantastic gravy)
Mr. Jenner's potatoes roasted in goose/duck fat (we never have any leftovers)
Snob's yams
Spoonbread (My brother Mike made this. A new recipe from the Nigella Christmas book. Good with gravy)
cranberry sauce
red hot jello salad
spinach cooked in butter & nutmeg
Creamy peas & pancetta (another Nigella Christmas recipe and a keeper)
Rolls

Olives & home-made pickles (My mom brought her Nebraska Dills and I put out my bread & butters)

Blackberry pie made by our family friend Kathie
Pumpkin cake with the AMAZING mace buttercream filling made by our friend Danica
Pumpkin Chiffon Fruit pie
Lemon Meringue pie

There was some local cheese my Mom brought but we never got to it as we stuffed ourselves rather silly.

Now to think about baking Christmas cookies!
