I’m tired

Today I cooked:
-Roasted asparagus soup
-Maple glazed acorn squash
-Sage and lemon stuffed turkey
-Cranberry sauce
-Apple gravy
-Mashed potatoes
-Wild rice
-Green bean casserole (made the french fried onions from scratch)
-Garlic collard greens
-Cornbread stuffing (yup, even baked the bread myself)
-Caramel pumpkin gingersnap cheesecake (oh, the crust? Not a pre-bought shell – I made it)
-Apple crisp

All by myself (I literally wouldn’t let my mom set foot in the kitchen to get a glass of water – I got it for her), all from scratch, and everything came out absolutely perfect and delicious. I am SO proud of myself, and I think I finally have a very good excuse to be tired 🙂

Leave your e-mail if you want any of the recipes and I’ll send you my top secret Thanksgiving organizational spreadsheet that I made to help me get it all done flawlessly.

  1. yummy. I really want to know how to make those onions from scratch. I am a recipe whore, so bring ’em on! pslisarg at hotmail dot com.

    I’m impressed at how much you cooked.

  2. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are absolutly CRAZY! lol. (From scratch? Really?! Impressive!) I’d love the recipe for the caramel pumpkin gingersnap cheesecake…it sounds awesome! And the cornbread too.

  3. How many people did you pack into a Manhattan apartment? It must have been a crowd with a menu like that. Holy cow. You SHOULD be proud. My first 10 Thanksgiving meals were varying shades of disaster.

    Great race report. Hope you’re on the mend.

  4. your mom let you devise your own thanksgiving menu? I made thaksgiving this year and had to cater to everyone’s whim and desire for old stand-bys which meant BORING. lucky you.

    Cheescake recipe, please.
