Thanksgiving Menu 2012

The turkey is brining, a cake has been made, the veggies are chopped, the ciabatta is now toasted bits, but I am having a hard time this year wrapping my head around what I have to do today to get a Thanksgiving dinner on the table. We don't cook the same stuff every year, so each menu is new to me.

Since I am a scatterbrain and need visuals to help me remember stuff, here's our Thanksgiving Dinner menu:

Roasted Squash with Date Relish and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Slow Roasted Green Beans with Sage
Sweet Potatoes with Bourbon and Maple
Alton Brown's Turkey
Italian Mother-in-Law Dressing
Mashed Potatoes
Turkey Gravy
Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting
Apple Mosaic Tart with Salted Caramel

Geez Louise! I'd better get going. Thanks to all of you for taking time out of your day to read this little blog.
