COOK!! In case you haven't looked at a calendar lately (or don't happen to be from the US) Thursday is Thanksgiving. My food shopping is done and tomorrow I start to do some cooking and prepping. It will be our little family plus two cadets from Lackland AFB,our nephew Gabriel and his friend, Mark. Operation Homecook I think this is something we will participate with in the future too.
cheese and crackers
Black Bean Salsa and other jarred salsas
stuffing (sausage and apple)
Green beans with bacon vinegarette
shells and cheese (don't ask, the kids always beg for it)
I think that is it.
I am cheating a little, well a lot. My turkey is HEB Fully Cooked. The kids liked it last year when I was too sick to do Thanksgiving. It isn't 'purist' but it frees up time and trouble and tastes fine.
