Thanksgiving with the Millers

I love Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays. It almost always means our whole family spends weeks working on a menu that will satisfy all of us. My nephews get frustrated and ask why we can’t just have “normal” food on Thanksgiving, and why it has to be so elaborate.

Part of the reason is that we are not “normal.” Part of the reason is that we love experimenting. And part of the reason is that the memories from planning and cooking with each other are just as important as the actual eating of the meal.

This is our Thanksgiving Menu this year.

Oregano-Lemon Roasted Turkey

Wild Rice and Pine Nut Stuffing

Mom’s Cornbread Dressing

Pork Roast with Garlic and Rosemary

Potatoes Dauphin

Herbed Roasted Parsnips, Carrots and Potatoes

Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

Beth’s Broccoli with Crispy Asian Noodles

Bread Pudding

Pecan Pie

Rustic Apple Tart with Cinmamon Cream

Sounds pretty normal to me! If you would like any of these recipes, please email me at KarynM@GourmetGalleryWaco.com.
