My (Pretend) Thanksgiving Menu

Hi Readers,

We are going to my parents' house for dinner again tonight, so I didn't want to leave you all hanging with another absent night.  I also have been having so much dreaming up a pretend Thanksgiving Menu.  The reason why I'm calling it pretend is that I probably am not going to make dinner, but a girl can dream!  So here we go!

So I will just start off with the main dish!  Turkey, of course, but since it's just our small family, I think I would just buy one big turkey breast!  I would put it in the slow cooker, with lots of yummy chicken broth, and some stuffing of some sort.

For sides, I would make the garlic parmesean knots that I made for Thanksgiving last year, here's a link to them:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216064770663/ These were a hit, and I'd be a lot more experimental with them.

Another side I would make the brown rice and lentil casserole:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066256067/

Then for another side, yes I know, lots of sides, but this is a pretend menu, so let a girl dream!  I would either do green bean casserole or green beans with bacon bits, and some bacon grease, onions and minced garlic.

And for ANOTHER side, mashed potatoes!

For dessert, I would make this pumpkin roulade with ginger buttercream recipe that I fell in love with:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/pumpkin-roulade-with-ginger-buttercream-recipe/index.html

And for another dessert I like to serve this pumpkin mousse in mini graham cracker pie crusts:  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sandra-lee/pumpkin-mousse-recipe/index.html

Okay, my computer is dying, and a baby is hungry!  I had better stop day dreaming!!

Happy HOLIDAYS!!!

Meg
