Turkey-Lurkey Time


Yes...this is not a turkey. This is an adorable duck from Oxford MD, one of our fave haunts. Infinitely preferable to an image of the poor slain turkey.

Once again we are bracing for giving thanks--traditionally a day of heavy entertaining here at Londonport Way! Cocktails begin at 1:00, with an open house for several hours before the bird is consumed around 4.

On the menu:

Drinks time:

2009 Beaujolais Nouveau
Pinot Grigio
Pimms Cups
Artisanal cheeses and crackers

Dinner:

Spiced Pumpkin Soup
Sunset Salad (a Main Line Classics classic)

Roasted Turkey with Apple Brandy Gravy
Oyster Dressing Chesapeake
Sausage and Sage Dressing
American Corn Pudding
Smashed Sweet Potatoes
Green Beans with Bacon
Cranberry Marmalade Relish
Corn Bread

Pumpkin Pie
Apple Crostada
Pecan Pie
Nutmeg Ice Cream

Riesling
Champagne

A lotta work, but it's such a great holiday. NO GIFTS!! That's what I like about it. No pressure.
Here's to sweating it out over the hot stove, and then rolling back into bed when everybody leaves!
