I think I decided this is what I want in the kitchen

I’m still renting so I’m not ready to splash out on the expensive good stuff, so this will do (at 2 bills, I like the looks of it and it will fit the space.)

I’ll let you know when I finally break down and order it.

OK, I’m ready to cook

for Thanksgiving now.

I don’t know why, but I have the menu.
I think it was that we went to the snooty Costco (with all the plastic surgeries that I’m sure were considered successful but that look like they went horribly awry to me…) but has fantastic food available.

Anyhoo, here’s what I have in mind:

  • cornbread
  • deviled eggs
  • banana bread (with hazelnuts and golden raisins)
  • appetizers: phyllo dough, Shiitake mushroom, Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar reduction drizzled on top
  • crudites
  • Aunt Myrtle’s Crazy buns (whole wheat version)
  • cornish game hens
  • butternut squash soup and creme fraiche
  • garlic mashed potatoes
  • green beans
  • ceasar salad
  • stuffing and gravy
  • cherry pie
  • peach and apricot cobbler
  • vanilla ice cream (most likely made by me)
