Our Thanksgiving menu, in development

Here's what it looks like, so far:
  • Roast turkey
  • apple stuffing
  • baked sweet potatoes
  • roasted vegetables
  • maple-glazed carrots
  • crispy roast potatoes
  • cranberries with pears and ginger
  • salad
  • some sort of pasta thing, tbd (for Nick's kids)
We'll probably just buy bread and dessert. Matt is the most accomplished cook of the kids -- he'll be put to work independently. Liv can help (though her attention span is limited.) Nikki will help Nick (skills rudimentary) and Jamie has offered to help with cleaning, since cooking isn't in her wheelhouse. Lots of potatoes in the meal, as both a tribute to PEI's major crop and the fact that all our kids love potatoes, no matter how prepared.

In a couple of hours we'll head to Sobey's to shop (Liv loves that store so much that we are forbidden to go there without her.)

Should be a fun and unique Thanksgiving.
