Thanksgiving salivations...

I've been looking at some blogs and salivating about their Thanksgiving menus.  The beautifully dressed turkey is from Kris at Simplify - her first cooking tutorial.  I may just have to try this method soon.
The Pioneer Woman has her favourite Thanksgiving sides listed in a post - my goodness, how I'd love to have green bean casserole, whisky glazed carrots and brussels sprouts with balsamic and cranberries and lovely stuffing for the turkey!
Then I found these on the Tasty Kitchen blog - Sweet Potato Knots
Have a look and try not to drool!
Cheers - Joolz


  1. Not drooling was impossible sorry! It must be wonderful to have such cold outdoor weather and come in and enjoy such a feast.

    Re your Paris coasters(again) I bought the set of art ones, you know with the Black Cat and the other bohemian paintings of Montmartre in the late 19th century, will take some pics(one day!)

    Hope all is well

  2. I have been doing exactly the same thing!

  3. Hi Joolz! Thanks for dropping by--yes, I will be cooking a turkey raised by my son! Actually he will be smoking one and my son-in-law will be deep frying one in a vat of peanut oil! I'll be making mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole which has a streusel topping of brown, sugar, butter and flour and chopped pecans! Yummmm!!! Youngest daughter is making the green bean casserole, and I'm making corn pudding and my grandmother's recipe for cornbread dressing (stuffing) and giblet gravy. Cranberries too of course!
    I love Pioneer Woman's recipes--I watch her on the Food Network at daughter's house cause we don't have cable now. Went to 8 yr. old grandson's school yesterday--the kids had a program where some were dressed as turkeys, pilgrims and Indians! A soup lunch followed. So much fun! Benjamin's part was reading a prayer! Just wondering if y'all have a version of stuffing? Northerers here make white bread dressing and Southerers are known for cornbread dressing.

  4. I can't wait until Christmas to make that meal. Our Thanksgiving in Canada is in October. Had a full turkey meal then as well.

  5. Hi, Joolz! I tried to email, but got a message that my "default e mail was not set up" Whatever that means...

    I see V has already commented above, but I wanted to answer your question: Cynthia (Cindy) and Vicki!

    Great guesses, though!

    Loved the food pix - I have Pioneer Woman's cookbook and it is divine! C
