Lush List: Thanksgiving Menu and Shopping List

by | Entertaining | 3 comments

Can you believe it is only 10 days until Thanksgiving?  Here is a quick check list to make sure you have everything you need to prepare a great meal for Thanksgiving already in your pantry.  Shop for all of these now and not be in the long lines this time next week!

Our Traditional Thanksgiving Menu:

Smoked Turkey

Spiced Orange Cranberry Sauce

Traditional Cornbread Dressing with Gravy

Brown Sugar and Bacon Wrapped Greenbeans

Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Sage (new this year!)

Alyne’s Angel Rolls

Marshmallow Fruit Salad

Coconut Macaroon Hot Fruit Compote

Sea Salt Caramel Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Turkey:  I get mine from Greenburg Turkey in Tyler, Texas.  They ship right to you door.  These make great gifts as well.  Greenbury makes the best smoked turkey, hands down.  Figure about 1 lb. per person.  Texas Monthly thinks the same: “A mahogany-hued smoked turkey from Greenberg, tender and juicy, is such a holiday tradition in some families that they’d sooner do without a Christmas tree. Greenberg does whole turkeys, not those atrocious cured boneless breasts, and they are divine. $3.65 a pound (6- to 15-pounders available). 903-595-0725 or gobblegobble.com.”

Cu4Cup Flour:  This is a great all-purpose gluten free flour.  I use it to make all of my pie crusts, cakes, rolls and cookies.  You can use the recipe from this post and make them this weekend.  They’ll keep in your refrigerator for 2-3 weeks wrapped tightly in plastic. You might think about making a few more and freezing them for Christmas.

Gluten Free Pie Crust Mix:  If you don’t want to make yours from completely scratch this mix from Williams-Sonoma is wonderful.  They have free shipping right now if a store is not near you.

Canned Pumpkin for Pumpkin Pancakes, Sea Salt Caramel Pumpkin Bundt Cake or traditional pie.  I really like Trader Joe’s or the Pumpkin Pie Mix (canned – not really a “mix”) from Whole Foods.

Spices:  I just restocked on a few things.  My local grocery store has buy 2 get one free.  Check yours this week before they are out of what you will need.

Vanilla                       Pumpkin Pie Spice             Poultry seasoning

Cinnamon                 Ground Cloves                    Celery Salt

Baking Soda              Nutmeg                                Dried Sage

Baking Powder         Ground Ginger

Basics:

Corn Meal                  Brown Sugar                    Whipping cream

Fresh Cranberries    Eggs                                   Apples (Green and Red)

Chicken Broth           Sweet Potatoes                Sugar

Flour/Cup4Cup        Butter                                Milk

Yeast                           Fresh garlic                      Onion

Celery Stalk               Bacon                                Kosher Salt

The rest of my list:

Fresh Greenbeans   Marachino Cherries         Mini Marshmallows

Sour Cream              Coconut Macaroons         Apricot halves (Canned)

Amaretto                   Fresh Thyme                     Pear Halves (Canned)

Pineapple Chunks   Peach slices (Canned)     Mandarin oranges (Canned)

Sweet Potatoes         Balsamic Vinegar            Brussels Sprouts (fresh)

Butternut Squash

I’ll be sharing recipes for family favorites like my Orange Spiced Cranberry Sauce and my Great-Grandmother’s Angel Rolls.
