Thanksgiving Menu

It is time to start thinking about Thanksgiving - it doesn't really take much thinking as it is always the same - no one likes to be adventurous on holidays - the whole family is very big on tradition. This makes it much easier on the cook - So here is the menu as it appeared in the first edition of this cookbook:

Turkey Stuff


Cooking Thanksgiving dinner for this family can be a real pain - do not - attempt it unless you are dedicated & are prepared to follow through on an extremely rigid menu - everything has to be done exactly the same as the year before - or the family curse will follow you forever (see Note #1).

The Menu

Shrimp Cocktail*

Olives and Celery

Roast Turkey


Bread Stuffing

Potato Stuffing

String Beans

Sweet Potato Rolls

Mashed Potatoes

Broccoli with Cheese Sauce

Creamed Onions*


Mashed Rutabagas*

Jellied Cranberry Sauce

Pumpkin Pie

French Silk Pie

Apple Pie

Custard Pie*

Tawny Port (see Note #2)

*These are optional - to be served ony in case of large numbers of out-of-town relatives.

Note #1: No one knows exactly what this involves - because no one has ever taken the chance to find out!

Note #2: This is not to be served with the dinner - it is primarily for the cook - with a small amout to be added to the gravy. This is a tradition that dates back to your Great-great grandmother - it is not an optional part of the dinner!
