So, now that Veteran's Day is out of the way, we are full steam ahead to Thanksgiving.
I/we am/are hosting this year. I think there will be approximately 12-15 of us.
Here's what I'm thinking:
Stuffed cornish hens (as opposed to the traditional big bird, I'm going for little birds. I think 1/2 per person is a reasonable expectation for portion size, except for the college and twenty-something men coming over for whom I will plan for 1.5 birds each)
Twice baked sweet potatoes
A corn/bean dish
Honey glazed ham
Macaroni and cheese
Wines and warm cider
I am still open to suggestions though, so if you don't see your favorite holiday dish on the list, please post a comment with a suggestion. Also, your favorite recipes for any of the above dishes are welcomed.
