You know what, readers? It is almost Thanksgiving. The biggest cooking holiday of the year, and I am not sure what to make. First of all, I'm hindered by the all vegetarian side dishes (so many vegetarians in CA). Second, I haven't scoped out the produce in CA yet - I know it will be amazing, but what will it be? I just don't know. So far I'm thinking:
Turkey (duh. I use the recipe from the November 2006 issue of Gourmet. It's super easy)
Mashed Potatoes (one of the only Thanksgiving foods that my sister likes)
Butternut Squash (because I love it this year - not sure what to do with it yet)
....and some more stuff? My dad wants me to make challah, obviously we need some cranberries and some more vegetables....but what? My mom will probably make a salad (the members of my immediate family are all big salad enthusiasts) and a pumpkin pie.....
Any thoughts? Recipes? I need help.
