Instead of eating all day I read recipe books

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I'm planning a big Thanksgiving dinner. I'll be in P3 and I am having many of my neighbors over. I am planning on offering buffet style healthy options. Not everything is completely carb-free. Here is the menu. If you want me any of the recipes, let me know. (So far none of my guests want turkey or stuffing, so I won't be making it, but if you want my recipe for an easy no-fail turkey or my fruit & nut stuffing, I am willing to share.)

Three sisters soup (black bean, butternut squash & corn)
Spinach Strawberry Banana Salad
Caramelized tofu w/ shredded brussels sprouts
Pumpkin Ravioli
Twice Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes
Thai Quinoa
Garlic haricots verts amandine
Party Popping Trail Mix
Grapefruit Brulee
Caramel Pumpkin Pudding Cupcakes

i am also having a spritzer bar. I'll have plenty of seltzer (club soda) on hand. The kids are going to skewer berries, grapes and citrus wedges onto toothpicks.

For centerpieces, I am going to get some trays of wheat grass and insert wedges of apple, melon, etc sticking up out of the grass.

Am I forgetting anything?

    I hate to cook.
My husband volunteers at the hospital on Tuesday mornings and he told them he'd volunteer on Thanksgving if they needed him, so looks like I'll join him for T'day Dinner, since he gets a pass for a FREE lunch each time he volunteers. LOL
