So I'm doing a joint Thanksgiving dinner with [personal profile] ellen_fremedon, half vegan, half omnivore.

I'm thinking of making sauerbraten and spaetzle instead of a turkey. One, I like sauerbraten and think of it as holiday food. Two, it will be a lot easier to transport than a roast turkey. Three, I will definitely eat the leftovers, if there are any -- there weren't the last time I made sauerbraten for a party.
I did put down a deposit for a goose (a small one) for Thanksgiving. Now I just need friends to help me eat it.

I usually ask people to bring a side dish or similar -- I make the entree, the deserts (pies, ice cream, and sorbet) and the stuffing myself. Occasionally this gets experimental, like the year I made duck and also fried parsley.

Currently I plan on making goose (with or without chestnut stuffing), homemade applesauce, sweet potato pie, and homemade ginger ale. More dishes can be added depending on who and how many people wind up eating with me.

So let me know -- want to come to Thanksgiving with me this year?

So I went to the Crafty Bastards fair yesterday (report here), and thus was at Union Market. Tasty, tasty Union market...

I have all sorts of ideas for Thanksgiving dinner, and it will be glorious!

This year, ellen_fremedom and I are co-hosting, with a roast, a chicken, a variety of soft drinks and starchy foods to be indulged in.

What we need now is a head count...

Right now it looks like it will probably be a gluten-free Thankgiving, but that's not a worry -- Thanksgiving is all about alternative starches! Sweet potato pie, pumpkin soup, and corn fritters for everybody!
