Mom has just invited three people to join us at Thanksgiving. That makes us seven total rather than four.
That’s more like it. :-)
Potatoes Dauphinoise (I use Dorie’s recipe)
Roasted Brussels sprouts with pomegranate seeds
Sweet-potato casserole with pecans and maple syrup
Canned cranberry sauce
Mama Stamberg’s cranberry relish
Lemon meringue pie
Marie-Helene’s apple cake
I think two roasts and three desserts are enough for seven people (yeah, I know). However, I’d like to add a side dish or two. Can’t decide between simple homemade dinner rolls and my friend Mirella-Pandora’s Angel’s Bread/cake.
And then I think Dorie Greenspan’s stuff-baked-in-pumpkin thing, which has been a hit in the past. I would serve soup in the pumpkin shell, as I’ve done in the past, but then I have to add bowls to the service, and I don’t think we have seven bowls handy. Hmm, tiny pumpkins as bowls? Buy cute bowls? Hmm.
My ears and mind are open. What would you add?
