Vashon Thanksgiving 2014

This year I spent the day at Brandon and Lauren's house with their 3 boys and new baby girl, our friends Andrew and Rita, and Lauren's sister Kate.  We had a late breakfast of oven pancakes before getting started on cooking for the big meal.  No pictures again, but here is a list of what was on our menu:


-Barbecued Turkey that Brandon got from a slaughter job, stuffed with Rita and Andrew's kimchi and a pomegranate
-Gravy that Brandon made by reducing turkey stock, with a little Cornerstone buttermilk added
-Lauren's Stuffing, which had beef bacon in it this year, and more mashed potatoes than in past years
-Brussels Sprouts grown and cooked by Rita, sauteed with beef bacon
-Green Bean Mushroom Casserole from the November 2014 Food Network Magazine, with Rita's onions fried in beef tallow
-Cabbage Gratin with Rita's cabbage, using a recipe from the November 2013 Bon Appetit magazine as a guide, featuring Cornerstone's cheese, Lauren's bread used for the bread crumbs, and Farmstead Meatsmith prosciutto
-Roasted Squash with Lemon-Tahini Sauce from the December 2012 Bon Appetit and made with Rita's winter squash
-Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with Rita's potatoes and Cornerstone buttermilk


-Buttermilk Pumpkin Pie from the November 2014 Food Network Magazine, with Cornerstone's pumpkin and buttermilk
-Maple Pecan Pie from Jeanette's maple cookbook
-Cranberry Cake that Rita made using her mom's recipe
-Apple Crisp that was dropped off by Brandon and Lauren's friends the Dalys
-Maple Whipped Cream - sadly, not from Cornerstone since we didn't have extra milk, but made with the help of Wallace
