Cranberry sauce tops my list of favorite foods. Last year I made this:
SWEET CRANBERRY SAUCE w/ BLUEBERRIES
And I've made this one for a couple years:
I finely chop brussel sprouts, squash, zucchini into little chunks and then I toss in some olive oil with just a VERY little bit of sea salt. Put it in the oven at 400 degrees, roast for about 20-30 minutes, check on them, flip them, and then roast for another 20 minutes until your desired degree of doneness. I like them a little crunchy and crispy. And they are so good!
This year I may even try Mashed Cauliflower but I'll probably have a baked potatoe instead. I love baked potatoes with sour cream & chives.
I still haven't developed a taste for sweet potato.
Amber has chosen ham for this Thanksgiving. Last year it was BBQ'd ribs for Thanksgiving AND Christmas. I don't eat meat so it didn't really make a difference to me one way or another. And she loves pumpkin pie.
I make a small 'tart size' rhubarb pie for myself. Amber doesn't like it and I certainly don't need to eat a whole pie.
Anyway, that seems to be the menu:
Baked Potato & Mashed Cauliflower
Green Salad with cranberries & apple chunks
Stuffing--can't forget that!
