A Sneak Preview of My Thanksgiving Menu: My guests better come hungry!

With a tweak here or there, the bulk of my Thanksgiving menu stays the same year after year...

For holidays like Thanksgiving, once your friends and family grow attached to certain dishes and if they don't get to experience the tastes that they remember, it just doesn't seem like the holiday. To keep everyone happy, each year I find myself adding new dishes without subtracting the tried and true...making for an inordinate amount of food!

Thanksgiving Menu-2009

Hors d’oeuvres

*Guacamole + Hummous with Blue Corn chips and baby carrots, mixed pitted olives

*Mushroom ears
