Finally, the Thanksgiving menu is complete: Smoked turkey with gravy and stuffing, creamy mashed potatoes, greenbean casserole, fresh corn with wild rice, apple-blackberry pie, pumpkin and cranberry bread, fresh cranbrerry dressing, and Veuve Cliquot champagne. Doesn't that sound fabulous? Too bad for me that most of the ingredients are still sitting unpurchased on the grocery store shelves.
The grocery store is scheduled for early tomorrow morning. Today, I'm busying myself with making pumpkin bread and cranberry dressing for a few friends to have on their Thanksgiving tables. I love how the cranberries pop when they are cooking and I love how the sauce thickens right before my eyes. The magic!
I enjoyed my morning in the kitchen but I believe my little helper enjoyed it all the more.
