Thanksgiving 2012 – The Countdown

So you all know that I start planning for Thanksgiving in September.  In past years Thanksgiving has been a family affair with the traditional 10K race and post-meal karaoke.  But this year extended family had other meal plans.  We will still be running the 10K.  But the meal itself will strictly be a friend affair with four of our dear friends.  Foodwise, I decided to go with an Italian theme.  Here’s the menu:

Cheese plate with a homemade fig jam and pickled carrots
Rosemary and lemon rubbed turkey
Porcini marsala gravy
Stuffing with Swiss chard and Italian sausage
Broccoli rabe with a balsamic reduction and pine nuts
Butternut squash risotto
Apple-cranberry upside down cakes
Tiramisu flavored cake balls
Pumpkin pie (made by West Coast Rebecca)

So as of today the stuffing is made and in the freezer.   The cake balls are made.  The butternut squash is roasted.  I’ll update folks on the progress during the week.
