I've been going to Annie's for Thanksgiving off and on for at least ten years now. She has a set menu and it's always delicious and very different from what I grew up on.
(Candied yams, green bean casserole with canned french fried onion rings, you know.)

Here's her menu:

Turkey, cooked on the Webber grill (so moist and delicious it's sinful.)

Bourbon Street Sweet Potatoes (it's more like yam mousse, plus, the recipe calls for Jack Daniel's. What's not to like?)

Brussell's Sprouts (never had those growing up either)

Mashed Potatoes, gravy and stuffing and assorted cranberry relishes and a new cranberry chutney. And the stuffing has chestnuts (NHTGU).

It was a lovely night, the moon was rising. And there was great conversation and champagne. Mmmmm.

Merry Christmas! I hope it was as lovely as your Thanksgiving.

(Hey, my comment verification word is "yaaay"! Funny.)
