My Thanksgiving Menu 2011

The theme this year (hopefully) is low stress. After last year's turkey debacle (planned to fry it, which fell through and had to bake it so we ate late), this year, I wanted to focus on sides and not the main course. We're calling this the Mid-Atlantic Thanksgiving Feast:

The Mid-Atlantic Thanksgiving Plate
Sparkling Brie & Cranberry Bites by Yummy Mummy

Crabcakes (made by local DC farmers market staple, Chris)

Kale & Leek Gratin (twisting this Michael Symon recipe)
Sweet Potato Souffle
Butternut Squash & Cornbread Stuffing Muffins

Apple Pie from Buzz Bakery in Alexandria, VA

What are you making/serving?

UPDATE: Due to poor planning the cranberry bites didn't make it (I neglected to read that they needed to soak overnight. I'll serve them this weekend for a party instead.) And the souffle... well, my Mom went to the grocery store for something I forgot and while she was gone I, not recognizing visually the difference between my butternut squash and the sweet potatoes, threw them all into the stuffing muffins - oh well, one less thing to make and the muffins were epic!
