So, TAKE IT AWAY EMMA!
Having lived in Philadelphia for a year I love the idea of Thanksgiving, just being taking the time to express gratitude for certain things and people that have had an impact on my life, what better way than to have a dinner party with terrific people and wonderful food. Check out my fantasy Dinner Party Guest List at Serendipity Reviews today.
As my guest
list would fill a hall I decided the best way to go with Thanksgiving dinner is
a Thanksgiving Themed Buffet, so we can all stand about, mingle and book chat - YAY.
I am addicted to watching ahref="http://www.foodnetwork.com/">The Food Network and scour the recipe ideas online from there. So that is where I went to look for ideas for the Thanksgiving Buffet. And I will admit that I got completely distracted by all the lovely recipes on there.
Obviously there would be a golden roasted turkey and glistening glazed ham.
Roasted Butter Herb Turkey Roast
Ham with Apple Glaze
And not forgetting the vegetarians:
I haven’t actually come across Tofurkey anywhere else but in the US. I just like the name of it – such a fun word to say Tofurkey, lol. But I am sure if this isn’t up to the discerning tastes of vegetarian guests then they will be wowed by the selection of salad and side dishes. My stomach is growling as I am writing this post and my mouth is drooling.
Goes to search for food.
Remembers why I no longer eat the school dinners. Back to dream about
deliciousness [ : D ]
Spinach Salad with Cranberries and Pecans
Macaroni and Mozzarella Salad
Caramelized Butternut Squash
Green Beans with Garlic Chips
Mashed Potato Salad
Baked Hush Puppies (because I just love the name)
And for the Desserts:
Mini Pecan Pumpkin Pies
Caramel Apple Bars
Pecan Dreams (again cos what a fantastic name for food)
Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes
And I am sure that the lovely Laura aka SisterSpooky could be persuaded to bring along some of the gorgeous chocolates she makes in her day job.
For the recipes go here
I am hoping to have a little Thanksgiving for my girls this year to show how much I appreciate them. I think they will want the desserts and possibly the bread but not the salad lol.
