I know this is an early Thanksgiving table but there is a reason! We are going to a friend’s house for Thanksgiving dinner but we wanted to have our own leftovers! So we started yesterday with our preparations! Jack chopped and I baked.
My baking was done! In the name of “at least trying to watch what we eat”. I did not make dessert.
I think Thanksgiving dinner is about my favorite. I don’t cook a turkey anymore. We cook chicken instead which we brine. However, creamed onions are a must along with stuffing made with smoked oysters. Homemade cranberry sauce and rutabagas and mashed potatoes complete the dinner. And, of course, there is gravy. My mother always had a relish try. Celery stuffed with Roka cheese spread was one of my favorites. When I was growing up there was always homemade pickled watermelon rind.
The cabinet just outside the kitchen is decorated.
So, let’s take a look at the table.
