Happy Thanksgiving!

I have been a busy bee with preparing for Thanksgiving at our house. We will have a total of 14 people, which in the terms of an Italian cook that means you cook for 40. Kidding. Well, not entirely. We do always have almost 1 pie per person - we like our variety. And for whatever reason, I always find it necessary to try new recipes on holidays. Just a glutton for punishment, I suppose. Here is my menu:

Turkey (because I wasn't allowed to make pork chops!)
Stuffing (my own concoction)
Mashed yellow, red & purple potatoes
Spaghetti Squash w/Basil Brown Butter
Peas w/Shallots & Pancetta
Butternut Squash Cheddar Gratin
Homemade rolls & Herb Butter
Cranberry Sauce, of course
Apple, cherry, pumpkin, blueberry, lemon & other pies
Cranberry Pear Cake w/Caramel Sauce


Table is set - ready for turkey day! I love the little frame with the "Stay Calm & Gobble On". :)
