Ooo! Brussels sprouts! Are you going to saute them?

As everybody knows, I'll be here by myself, but I've already got my menu planned:

Turkey with gravy
Stuffing
Corn
Lima beans
Sweet potato (just one, baked)
Cranberry relish
Biscuits
Tastykake pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream (local brand snack cake)

Possibly spiced apple wine


Delicious -- and ambitious! -- menu, Jeff. Whole turkey?

No. Two thick slices of breast from the supermarket deli counter, placed in a saucepan with the turkey gravy (Heinz, from a jar), and heated along with the gravy.

Stuffing is the supermarket store-brand stove-top variety.

The vegetables will be the steam-in-the bag (microwave) variety. (Actually, the lima beans are leftovers.)

Sweet potato will be baked in the microwave. The relish (cranberry and orange) is from the supermarket. The biscuits will be Pillsbury. (Leftover biscuits will make a good breakfast, heated up, with butter or jam.)

Easy to pull together, and not much clean-up.  :)  (I hate the clean-up part.)

I will definitely use my mother's silver. I'm debating whether to pull out a place setting of china that I haven't used in way more than a decade. Or maybe some of the pewter I used to use for SCA "feasts." Probably not.

No, I will probably boil or steam and then roast, drizzling a light soy-maple sauce over them.

I've always loved that Thanksgiving is an extra special holiday among Brokies. Even Eurobrokies!

Jeff, you could uphold tradition by eating a bowl of peaches and cereal or using an electric knife on your deli turkey.

I asked a Eurobrokie once what they'd do if they ever wanted to cook a turkey and they said, "We would go to the store and buy a turkey." Of course, they also have other game birds they could prepare, such as Grouse, Partridge, Pheasant, Quail, Snipe, various ducks or Woodcock.Or Cornish hen.

I guess Chuck will probably watch figure skating instead of football.  ;D
