Let's recap what I'm making and what I have on hand.
The menu is:
- Breakfast: cinnamon rolls and wassail
- Snacks: cheese, crackers, pickles, olives, carrot sticks
- Dinner: brined turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes with apples, pecan and sausage stuffing, cranberry sauce, rolls, pumpkin cheesecake
- Potluck dinner contribution: apple pie bites with brown sugar cinnamon ice cream
For snacks, I have everything but the olives on hand.
For dinner, I obviously need a turkey! For three people, I actually buy a 12 lb bird because we'll eat leftovers for days and then I'll make soup with the carcass. I already bought the brine last month. I make the gravy from scratch, so nothing to buy there. I have plenty of potatoes bought at $.99 a bag, plenty of apples, a small bag of pecan chips, crescent rolls bought during the same Catalina deal last month, and plenty of cream cheese I bought this week.
That makes my shopping list:
- turkey, at least 12 lb
- sage sausage
- bread cubes
- cranberry sauce
- canned pumpkin
- puff pastry
