Thanksgiving Menu

Hi everyone!

We're really sorry we haven't updated in a while. This has been a crazy work week for both of us. Alyssanne and I didn't even cross paths until Thursday! This Wednesday and Thursday we promise to keep you up to speed on the goings on in our kitchen. We'll have a full house, so I'm sure between the 6(!) of us, someone will be documenting our Thanksgiving meal.

Tomorrow, we'll finish (and start) all of the shopping, and figure out what will be made ahead of time, as well as try to narrow down our menu. I think it's much to long as of now, so I thought I'd tell you what it is and let you help us decide.

I was just wandering the isles at Shaw's, checking out the goods. I saw that they still have the Sam Adams fall harvest variety pack as well as the winter variety pack. There is no way of choosing between the two, so if anyone wants to stop by for some leftovers next week, we should (depending on how celebratory we're feeling this weekend) be able to offer you something to wash it down with!

Here is our unedited menu:

Apple Cider & Cinnamon Whiskey Cocktails

Baked Brie with Honey, raspberries and pecans



Sausage and Sage Stuffing

Green Bean Casserole (it isn't Thanksgiving without it)

Bourbon Cranberry Compote

Brie and Chive Biscuits

Roasted Vegetable Macaroni and Cheese

Mashed Potatoes & Gravy


Pumpkin Pie

Pecan Pie

Chocolate Pie

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bundt Cake


This year, we decided to make an extra pie to give to the bus drivers that have to work. Since the bus stop is just at the end of our street, we'll take turns running slices up. So no, we are not eating all of those pies ourselves. Even if we were, it's Thanksgiving! We can eat 8 pies if we want!

So there you have it. thoughts? Do we need another side? 3 more desserts? What about you? Do you guys have any Thanksgiving traditions? Favorite dishes?


  1. DEEEElicious. Can't wait!

  2. Um, please send me the veggie mac and cheese recipe!!

  3. more desserts definitely. And the menu looks perfect. Can't wait to see your recipe for that brie.
