It’s the Friday before Thanksgiving and I’m trying to plan what I’ll bring to my aunt’s house for Thanksgiving. In past years, I brought fried a turkey. This year, I’ve volunteered to bring apps and a side.
Rumaki aka bacon wrapped dates (Aunt)
brie with 2 kinds of Virginia chutney (plum, cranberry) (me)
soy sauce shitakes (from Momofuku) (me)
Side: corn bread dressing (MIL)
maybe corn souffle? (MIL)
spinach casserole (Aunt)
Dessert: two pecan pies (MIL)
pumpkin pie (Aunt)
Other things to be aware of:
My aunt tends to be late for everything. It’s at her house and I’m concerned she’ll flake out on some of her commitments, so the apps may need to last longer than originally intended.
There will be 14 of us. No real food avoidance issues I’m aware of.
This meal will take place in NC
I think the meal is very much on the sweet side of the spectrum, if we have a sweet app (rumaki) & 2) corn dishes…
Should I bring anything else or anything different?
