it's been confirmed; thanksgiving dinner at our house this year. i've been browsing through my cookbooks and magazines. cranberry and chocolate chip cookies is a contender so far.

I think we will be having TG at our house this year, but possibly a small group, 6 to 8 people. Definitely will be doing a brined turkey. Last year I made baked mashed potatoe casserole with pancetta. Have the recipe at home. It will be worth making again. Or possibly a potato gratin with rosemary. Have been wanting to do that again, but with just two of us normally, it's way too much food. I think I will make some pumpkin bread, as it's been a long time since I made pumpkin bread. Also some banana bread for snacking. The banana bread recipe is one of Emeril's. I know he's not real popular here, but the banana bread is great! LOTS of butter and also has sour cream.

Just found out my sister is making her FABULOUS baked broccholi & cheese casserole for T'Day! YUMMMMM!!!
I have tried, but I can not make this dish like my sister can! It is to die for!
It's her thecnique, because I have followed her recipe, and it never comes out as good as hers!
It's even better the second day!

i came across a recipe for autumn apple cake in a hudson valley guide. i decided to do a trial run pre-thanksgiving. i haven't tasted it yet, but if it turns out worthwhile, i'll sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.


autumn apple cake

2 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
4 cups apple, chopped

beat first three ingredients until creamy. then combine next three. fold in the apples. pour into a bundt pan or 9x13 pan. bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Thanksgiving hasn't been the same since a friend introduced me to "Potato Filling" about 5 years ago... This stuff is so good it overshadows the rest of the meal! Have made it in massive quantities for hubby's office parties too & people were scraping the pans out! I NEVER cook with a ton of fat & salt & carbs... Except to make this for Thanksgiving & Christmas.... I will NEVER serve plain ol' mashed potatoes for a holiday meal again!

This recipe is exactly as it was given to me, but I've also made it with part butter & part olive oil & the difference was pretty minimal. White bread, wheat bread, whatever you like will work. I always use skim milk because I like it, but whatever you like to make mashed potatoes with is fine.

5 lb potatoes
1 bunch celery, diced
2-3 large onions, diced
3 sticks butter
2 eggs
1/2 loaf of bread
Milk
S&P

Make mashed potatoes with a whole stick of butter & plenty of milk and add 2 eggs. Beat them in with a hand mixer. Potatoes need to be fairly wet so they won't dry out when baked.

Sauté onions & celery in a stick of butter & dump into mashed potatoes. Melt another stick of butter & brown the bread cubes. Throw those into the potatoes when they're kinda crispy.

Add lots of salt & pepper. Mix it all together & put aside a small bowl to eat now because you've worked hard. The raw eggs haven't killed me yet, but you're on your own here...

Put in a baking pan (I use a disposable foil one) & cover with foil at 350 for about 1/2 hour or so. Take off the foil & bake a little longer until the top starts to brown a little.

Leftovers make a mean potato pancake, too!

--------------------
If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

i've made mashed potatoes with celery and onion before; it's delicious. your recipe sounds good, although i don't think my conscience would allow me to add all that butter... also, i just tried a small piece of the autumn apple cake. it's a keeper.
