Because this is such an unusual Thanksgiving idea for our family, I decided to blog the experience.
Here is the menu I came up with (it's something like a Thanksgiving Picnic with sidedishes that can be made or prepped in advance):
- Smoked Turkey
- Mom's Potato Salad
- Green Bean Casserole (loosely based on Cook's Illustrated's lighter recipe and a nod to the American Classics recipe)
- Stuffed Squash (ala Dorie Greenspan's Pumpkin Stuffed With Everything Good or here on Evan Kleiman's Sidedish podcast. This is similar to Ruth Reichl's stuffed pumpkin in Gourmet Today, which I made (and ate completely) last fall.)
- Homemade Crescent Rolls
- Pumkin Pie
- Cranberry Upside Down Cake (Smitten Kitchen)
- John Sedlar's Pumpkin Infused Mezcal
