My crew has a Thanksgiving wiki. Here is what I contributed to the menu, a contribution I have edited eight times to date.

Rachel (Thanksgiving menu philosophy: We likely all have sentimental dishes. Bring that dish. I am apparently extra sentimental. Don't cook? Ask and we'll make it.)
  • Six Pies: Montmorency cherry pie, Walnut pie, Sweet potato pie, Shaker Lemon pie, Pumpkin pie, Ollalieberry pie
  • Four Sides: Farro with porcinis, Homemade applesauce, Roasted butternut squash with sage, Broccoli Gratin
  • One Bread: Parker House Rolls with Cranberry Butter from the NYT
  • Chestnuts to roast lazily afterward
  • Board games
All of this brings me great joy.

I made those parker house rolls for Thanksgiving too! Incredible -- but the recipe made way too much butter so I had to enjoy it on any piece of bread i could find for weeks afterward!

Laughing! WAY too much butter and I used really good fancy butter. The good news is that the extra cranberry butter remains delicious on toast, waffles, muffins, and butternut squash for at least two months, if not longer.
