Giving Thanks

The kids are home from college and catching up on some much-needed rest. I’ve done my shopping, though I’d forgotten about the locust-like tendencies of teenagers and twenty-somethings who have been surviving on dining hall food for months, so I’ll be off to the store again this morning for a few more staples. It is gratifying to see that both Isabelle and Russell like to cook and it is usually the first thing they do when they get home.

This year we’re going to try something new. Not to eat, since that will consist of our tried and true favorites, but rather to read. Seth Godin’s Thanksgiving Reader *. It’s a a free download you can print out and share at your Thanksgiving meal.

The Thanksgiving Reader by Seth Godin

If you wanted some Thanksgiving food ideas you can try these:

I’ll be making several of these Blue Ribbon Pumpkin Pies

These are tastey no-bake treats for your vegan and/or gluten-free friends

Our stuffing, well dressing really since we cook it out of the bird, is a variation on this recipe

I made a double batch of Ginger Cranberry sauce yesterday

If you love applesauce here’s an easy one to whip up

I’m going to try The Food Lab’s dry brine turkey this year

We’ll probably make a Thankful Pie with some of the leftovers

For my vegetarian friends I suggest you check out 101 Cookbooks

If you’re a really adventurous vegan you may want to tackle J. Kenji López-Alt’s Vegetable Wellington, it looks amazing

Getting ready for Thanksgiving

I am grateful for my family, the food we will be cooking, and being able to share this food journey with you my readers. Wishing you a very happy Thankgiving.

* Since I’m writing this post the day before Thanksgiving and there seems to be a high demand for the reader you can also click here to go directly to the pdf.
