Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving is speeding down the road full of fall food awesomeness and I’m pretty excited about it. It is by far my favorite holiday of the year (And please hold off on the whole “the native american helped us and we ended up killing them all” stuff. I get it, it was totally not a cool thing to do, but I didn’t do it and it was over 500 years ago, so let’s move on) because we all get together minus any religious pretense, and the day (at least in my house) focuses on the kitchen, an awesome meal, and a dash of football thrown in for good measure (Go Niners!).

The most important step is a great turkey, and luckily our local meat emporium, The Butcher & Larder, was taking orders for heritage turkeys, so I am good to go there.  After that, it is figuring out everything else to go with it, which is a job by itself. I am not going to go into crazy detail here about what a great Thanksgiving meal should consist of (as David Chang’s Momofuku cookbook source page says, “Google it”) but I can share a few ideas. I’ve been using  Delicious  to organize all the recipes I find online going back to about 2009, and now I have a specific Thanksgiving section. There are about 40 recipes in there (and i’m always adding) and they seem like winners, though I haven’t made all of them. So check out the Thanksgiving recipes here and tell me what you think. If you make one, let me know how it turns out. As far as what I am making, I’m working it, and I’ll post the menu later in the week.
