It approaches.

An addendum to last week's Preparations: series should've been Preparations: Thanksgiving. I'd been bopping along mindlessly through October, only to realize, with sudden shock, that Frog Pond closes next week and I don't have any idea what to cook for Thanksgiving.

Make that didn't. While Patrick made dinner yesterday evening the cookbooks and magazines came out, along with my meal planning notebook, and I drew up a list.

Dried Currant and Orange Stuffed Squash.
Brussels sprout slaw with mustard-maple dressing.
Scalloped potatoes and fennel.
Brown sugar Pecan Cupcakes.

Are you coming?

What are the favorite dishes in your family's Thanksgiving? Do you stick to a rotation of tried-and-true classics, or change it up every year? At my family's table, it was mostly tried-and-true classics, until I took over. If you want to be eating Brussels sprout slaw at Thanksgiving, hire a foodie to cook the meal.

It's pretty tried-and-true over here, to be quite honest. I'm from the Gulf Coast, so oyster stuffing is always on the table, as well as West Indies crab salad. But, besides that...I love the classics!

Yours sounds WONDERFUL!!!!
