Thanksgiving Menu

Today is Thanksgiving day and I have started on the fixins, and they are...

Rack of Lamb on the Grill marinated in olive oil, garlic, rosemary, sea salt and pepper.

Turkey (I got a 12 pound fresh bird) stuffed with garlic, onion, rosemary, lemon, sea salt and pepper with a little of the oil made for the lamb. I also rubbed the turkey with butter and DD seasoned it with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. I will let the turkey warm on the counter for an hour and then I will Bake in the oven at 375 for 31/2 - 4 hours or until it is done (little red popper pops up and the bird is 165F at thigh)

Simple Boiled Red, gold and purple potatoes topped with fresh parsley, butter, sea salt and pepper.

Roasted Red pepper salad. Roasted peppers with olive oil, minced garlic and salt.

Steamed Broccoli

Rose from 64 sq ft Kitchen and her family will be joining us on this festive day and they will be bringing fresh bread and dessert.

One of my closest friends and her husband will also be joining us and they will be bringing a traditional Finnish carrot casserole.

I may make gravy because the drippings from the turkey are so good but I think I am the only one that eats gravy (and not much at that) and for the work I am not sure it is worth it. I have made gravy for groups that love gravy (turkey, ham and chicken) and often I am told that it is the best gravy they have ever had. It is a good feeling to have gravy lovers say that.
