Honestly, I haven't done much in the way of Thanksgiving preparation yet. But I have plans to!
The two things I have done so far are plan my menu for Friday (that's when we celebrate) and make cranberry syrup for fun sparkling drinks. The syrup is really easy- I just combine a couple of cups of Wisconsin cranberries with one cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water. I simmer it until the cranberries burst and then strain it.
I admit to adding another batch of sugar and water to stretch the cranberries further. The second batch was still plenty flavorful! All that's needed for a fun drink is some fizzy water and a couple spoonfuls of this syrup.
Just look at that color!Now for the food...
Here's what I have planned:
Homemade Tofurky (Bryanna Clark Grogan's recipe)
Cornbread stuffing (Meemaw's recipe)
Roasted portabello mushrooms
Lots of gravy
Cranberry ginger preserves
Chocolate Pumpkin Pie (Martha's recipe, veganized)
I plan on cooking all day tomorrow! I can't wait!
