Thanksgiving Menu

Our Thanksgiving plans have changed several times over the past few weeks. First Jim's family was planning to drive up this week and spend Thanksgiving with us. Then that changed to coming up the following week. So now they're now coming up next Wednesday instead.

At first Jim and I thought we'd just go out to one of our favorite places for Thanksgiving. Well that changed too. We decided to just eat at home and have a nice quiet day together. We'vbe both been sorta stressed out from work and a day together with nothing else to do besides relax and fix a nice dinner would be nice. But what to fix? A turkey and all the trimmings for two seems a bit excessive. Then I had a moment of brilliance! Inside out turkey and stuffing.

You may be wondering what the heck I'm talking about. Well, if I take a piece of turkey breast, pound it out to about 1/4 inch and coat it in some panko bread crumbs that have been seasoned with traditional stuffing herbs like thyme and rosemary and such. Viola! Turkey with the stuffing on the outside. A little pan fry action and the main course is done.

So our menu will be as such:
Inside out stuffed turkey breast
Southern style green beans
Roasted fingerling potatoes

And for dessert: Pumpkin Creme Brulee

Now when Jim's family comes up we'll fix what we originally planned for Thanksgiving dinner which will be:
Roasted Cornish Game Hens (that have been brined)
Wild Mushroom Risotto
possibly more Southern Style Green Beans
fresh baked bread, possibly rosemary focaccia

and for dessert: Deep dish Apple Pie
