Thanksgiving will be at the McSudermans this year, and we've just finished laying out the menu to please various palates and cooking talents. This is a three-cook show, with a cameo from my husband; my mother, sister, and I all contribute about as much to the process. Here's the menu, which was composed amidst solemn promises that we "aren't going to overdo it this year". And indeed, in an excercise of heroic restraint, I see that we've kept it down to four vegetables this year. Plus, y'know, soup. And cranberry sauce.
Tomato soup with parmesan foam
Deep fried turkey legs
Slow-cooker buttermilk chive mashed potatoes
Ginger glazed carrots
Braised peas with lettuce and mint
Baby bok choy, szechuan style
