The past two weeks are a blur. I do remember baking a lot of pies. And sides. And buttered rolls. And we entertained a crowd…not unmanageable, but still a crowd.
It was a lovely Thanksgiving at our house, with three of the Butterfield boys and their families gathered to talk food, sports and life. I had a fantastic crew in the kitchen—my daughter, daughter-in-law and a brother-in-law were all huge helps and I could not have managed the meal alone. It was an ambitious menu with so many sides…
2 Roasted Turkeys with Hard Cider Gravy
Mashed Sweet Potatoes with brown sugar crumble
Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Mashed Potato Casserole
Maple Glazed Carrots
Skillet Green Bean Casserole
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cornbread Croutons
Brussels Sprouts & Cauliflower Gratin
Traditional Bread Dressing
Mushroom & Parmesan Savory Bread Pudding
Kale Salad with Butternut Squash & Pumpkin Seeds
Cranberry Citrus Relish
Buttered + buttered rolls
Thankfully, the clean-up team did not disappoint either. There were cousins running every which way to clear the table, wash and dry dishes and take out the mounds of recycling. (so many bottles!)
What a blessing to be surrounded by people you love at any time of the year! It was so nice and I hope that each of you had your own version of Thanksgiving joy around the table.
Because Thanksgiving came early this year, I have one last weekly menu before the holiday crush. Once December arrives, my team and I will be madly baking, boxing and mailing gifts across the country for orders. We would love to fulfill your gifting needs as well so be sure to get your orders in as soon as possible. Gifts are online now!
This Saturday, we will have a booth at the Jesuit Christmas Bazaar from 9am – 5pm. Please stop by and say hi! We are working hard to have lots of product to sell on the spot. We’ve come up with some not-to-be-missed specials just for the Bazaar and it’s all live on the ordering site and effective through Saturday only, so check it out here.
