Planning the Feast

I'm really feeling traditional with a twist for Christmas but for Thanksgiving it has to be traditional. Some of the items I'm planning have been on my family's Thanksgiving tables for as long as I can remember: the cinnamon rolls for brunch, the stuffing, scalloped corn, and rolls for dinner. A few of them have become personal traditions since I began preparing my own East Coast feast six years ago: the turkey and cranberries.

Mom's Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting
Maple-Sage Sausage
Tea or Coffee

Garlic-Rosemary Turkey with Mushroom Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Grandma’s Stuffing
Scalloped Corn
Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Zinfandel
Mom’s Cornmeal Rolls
Pecan Pie
Red Wine

I can't wait for our lazy day of parade watching, cooking, and napping. Oh, and all the eating, too.

OMG, that sounds so amazing. I'm so bummed I'm going to miss it this year.
