|A Perfect Thanksgiving Menu
Thanksgiving dinner is always a mixture of the traditional dishes that make Thanksgiving one of our favorite holidays and a few new dishes that I try out each year. This year's menu is no exception, and features classic favorites like mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and cranberry orange relish. We have mixed in some new favorites such as a succulent brined turkey, kabocha squash, and an aromatic orange marjoram stuffing.
We serve shrimp with cocktail sauce, marinated mushrooms, marinated olives, and spiced nuts before dinner for people to graze on rather than a sitdown appetizer usually, but a some more formal appetizers to serve with this menu are Brie Butter, Curried Onion Rounds, Hot Crabmeat Spread, Mushroom Stuffed Mushrooms, and/or Wen's Crunchy Cheeseball.
