Thanksgiving Menu






It's early morning on the day before Thanksgiving and I am in the kitchen! Since I am a list maker I have been planning my strategy for weeks. My cleaning is done (except for the floors) and I've already spilled at least 1/2 cup of flour on the floor. How does this happen anyway? The buns are rising, 4 pie crusts are chilling and I am looking forward to spending most of my morning in the kitchen. After the baking and cooking is done, my daughter has gifted me a wood floor cleaning (I'm blessed, I know). And just like Mom always says, "set the table the night before to avoid unnecessary stress tomorrow." 
I'll be posting my homemade pies recipes soon (the pies aren't done yet so I don't have any pretty pictures).
So here is what my 13 guests will be eating tomorrow. I pretty sure I'm more excited than the children!!
My Thanksgiving Menu:
Turkey (20 pounds)
Ham
Mashed Potatoes
Turkey Gravy Simply the Best Homemade Gravy (bottom of the post, replace chicken with turkey broth)
Stuffing
Sweet Potatoes
Sweet Corn
Sweet Homemade Buns Simply Sweet Homemade Buns

Cinnamon Butter - 1 cup butter, softened to room temperature, 1/4 cup honey, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 2/3 cup powdered sugar. Mix all ingredients together and beat on low speed with mixer until everything is combined and smooth. Serve immediately on warm buns or refrigerate until needed. If you serve the buns warm, the butter will melt a little right into the buns. Yummy-licious!

Lettuce Salad and Dressing Simply Homemade Italian Dressing
Fresh Fruit Salad Simply Fruit Salad
Cranberry Sauce (no one likes it but it looks so pretty)
Homemade Pies - Pumpkin, Apple, Peach and Chocolate Cream Pie
Gluten-free Peach Cobbler Simply Dad's Homemade Peach Cobbler
Whipped Cream

Blessings from us to you for a Happy Thanksgiving and hearts filled with gratitude!

Love and peace,
~ Simply Tammi and Angie
