So after the “Mock” Thanksgiving dinner, now I have decided what to cook tomorrow! Whew! So I did go with the whole turkey instead of the split turkey breasts because I’m going to utilize the rest of the cooked turkey to make a fabulous Turkey Vegetable Rice Soup this weekend…( stay tuned for that recipe) So here’s the list! ….and always subject to change due to inspiration and experimentation that always seems to occur in my kitchen!

Fresh Cranberry and Blackberry Preserves ( yes there are still leftovers, and they were so divine with my lunch this week on the Turkey Goat Cheese and Cranberry Wrap..you’ve got to try it! )

Green Bean Almondine.. I Just love the way it sounds! So basic, but so yummy too! Just boil fresh clean  and cut green beans and then saute in pan with olive oil and sliced almonds! Season with salt and pepper. add a little dash of nutmeg too 🙂

Sweet Potato Casserole with a Praline & Marshmallow Crust an experiment in the works combing two ideas I have in mind…will share with you tomorrow!

Apple and Chicken Sausage Stuffing~ 2 fresh Granny Smith apples diced with browned mild Italian chicken sausage (minus the casings) blended with herb stuffing and fresh mushrooms…MMMMmmmmm! So yummy!

And so that leaves the bird….I’m thinking Brown Sugar and Honey Glazed Turkey…..with a little soy sauce to offset all the yummy sweetness 🙂

“To stuff or not to stuff the Turkey that is the question…what will you do?”

And for the finale…Cranberry Praline Crumble..I saw this recipe for a Nantucket Cranberry Pie on Food Press and was immediately inspired and thought how could I turn it to something we would all enjoy..Crumble it is!

And I’m also thinking I’ll make with Gracie some kid approved Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies~ just add 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree to a chocolate chip cookie  mix , 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 tsp pumpkin spice, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon…Sure to make any child smile!
