Thanksgiving 2011

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and if you live in Austin and don't have dinner plans, please join me and my family and a few friends to celebrate the holiday together.

Chris and I don't have any family in Texas, and we'd be all alone if it weren't for friends (new and old). This is our fourth year of doing Orphan's Thanksgiving at our house, and I would love to have you over. Last year Elizabeth came by, and the year before that an entire film crew in town joined in the celebration. It won't be strange to join strangers, because strangers are just friends we haven't yet met, right?
If that wasn't cheesy enough to entice you, let me give you a quick rundown of our menu so far:
  • smoked turkey, fresh off the Primo
  • green bean casserole
  • oyster dressing
  • roasted butternut squash
  • macaroni and cheese
  • mashed at home potatoes
  • from scratch rosemary and sea salt rolls
  • homemade pumpkin pie, pumpkin mouse ice cream cake, pecan pie, and sweet potato pie
The festivities start at 5pm and if you want to cook with us we'll be out of our pajamas by 10 a.m. Contact me for more details.
