  Getting Ready for Thanksgiving 
Getting ready for Thanksgiving, which is Thursday, November 23rd this year, will take some planning.  It is the favorite holiday for many of us as it is not encombured with gift giving and other holiday parties.  It should be the annual holiday for coming together with family and friends for good conversation and good food.  The traditional food items are turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts (in some households), salads (green and fruit), and an array of desserts.  My family likes pumpkin pie with "real" whipping cream, the kind made the day of Thanksgiving in a stand mixer.  Also apple pie, pecan pie and coconut cream pie are other dessert favorites.  With some advance planning Thanksgiving can be enjoyed by all, even the host and/or hostess.
To your left see a few Thanksgiving recipes, just in case you are cooking for a crowd this year.  More can be found in our Sally's Place recipe section
All the best in food, wine, and travel.
Happy November,
Sally Bernstein
