Thanksgiving Notes

Menu

Turkey
Ahi Steaks

Yams with marshmallow
Cornbread Stuffing with vegetarian sausage
Mashed Potatoes
Green beans and sliced mushroom saute
Raspberry Jello with sour cream
wheat rolls

Crescent Dragonwagon gravy
Turkey gravy
Cranberry sauce
cranberry salsa

Night before we:
baked cornbread for stuffing and made the jello salad.
Next year perhaps start Septienne rolls the night before.


Cornbread Stuffing
For Cornbread, I doubled the Fanny Farmer recipe.
The 9x13 green glass casserole dish is too small for a double recipe--next time look for 128 sq inches of surface area.

Wheat Rolls

I picked this recipe this morning.  The white/wheat mix, eggs and butter, without potato flakes or weirdness, looks like what I remember of my mother's recipe.

Cranberry Sauce

Should have heeded warning about cutting sugar.  I made our sauce as stated--4 cups cranberries, 1 cup sugar--and it's too sweet.
