Deep fried turkey with corn bread dressing. Cornbread baked in dutch oven. Sweet potatoes precooked and heated on Coleman stove. Cranberry and green and black olives,open the can. Pumpkin pie baked at home. Thats what we had last year and probably will be the same this year.
Well, the best news is that Pearl will be our B&B/spare room for 2 nights here at Camp Redwood. Ollie & I (and Queenie I'm sure) will enjoy total privacy while the family occupies the house. We're gathering 10 more family members from different parts of the country. I'm thinking of doing a brine-cured roast turkey. Waiting to hear how many want fresh CA oysters, also some pomegranite relish (and some pomegranite jelly). Got fresh chestnuts at the farmer's market today, so need to figure out where they're going--in the brussels sprouts or the dressing??? Otherwise, lots of different wines from family in Napa Valley and Central Coast. I'm in heaven, needless to say! Nick & Marlene--head on out here!
We saw Michael and Lori Sanders last weekend. They're doing their turkey in their gigante dutch oven!
