Thanksgiving dinner in Lebanon, v. 2012

Here we go; our Thanksgiving dinner menu, including drinks:

Pre-dinner drinks: Freshly homemade Margaritas, with a virgin alternative for those in a family way

  • Peanut soup (Yes, he’s fun like that, my husband; he likes to cook and try new, odd-sounding foods)

Drinks, main course: Peppoli Chianto Classico 2010 for the adults, 7Up for the kids, and water for the pregnant lady
  • Roast turkey with bread stuffing and gravy
  • Creamy mashed potatoes
  • Sweet potato orange casserole
  • Succotash
  • Derby day asparagus
  • Martha Stewart’s Roasted pears and red onion
  • Ocean Spray Cranberry sauce (Oh yes, if you lived in a place where finding a can of Ocean Spray tucked away on a shelf is an instant tears-of-joy inducer, you would too!)
  • Two types of corn bread (one Halal and one pork infused version)
  • Chicken pot pie
  • A fresh salad (Yes, we did. And get this: mainly because the kids wanted it. Go figure.)

Dessert drink: Wild Turkey 101 (found by chance in a store near Jeanne D'Arc - I will tell you more about this in a later post)
  • Pumpkin pie with freshly whipped cream
  • Dark chocolate fudge cake
