Thanksgiving Plans?

It's nearly Turkey Day!
One week from today we'll be stuffing ourselves with food, fun and family.

Here's a peek at what came in my latest organic CSA box -- the Thanksgiving Box:

  • Apples 
  • Celery
  • Cranberries
  • Garlic
  • Green Beans
  • Leeks
  • Mushrooms
  • Pears
  • Red Romaine Lettuce
  • Sweet Potatoes

We're going to be traveling for the holiday, but I will definitely be making some lovely dishes this weekend. I'm thinking sauteed  green beans with garlic and rosemary, roasted sweet potatoes with apple sausage and honey maple pecans, a salad brimming with pears, cranberries and goat cheese -- and perhaps an apple tart. After all, you can never start celebrating too early. Am I right?

What favorite dish(es) are you making for Thanksgiving this year?


P.S. I am so THANKFUL to everyone who reads and shares this blog.


  1. This year it will just be the 5 of us. The boys love my pies, so I am going to try your Apple-Pear-Cranberry Pie with Pecan Crumble. I can't wait!! What can I substitute for the apple brandy...I don't have any. Have fun on your adventure!! xoxo

  2. Sounds nice. Hi to all the boys! You can just leave the brandy out. It will still taste great. Or, a nice apple cider would work, too. Just use a bit less than called for so it isn't too watery. Happy Thanksgiving!
